Jon Niese won't evict Neil Walker from his apartment

Yup, that's right. Niese had signed a one-year lease right before the Mets began their playoff run last season. When Walker got traded to the Mets with Niese going to Pittsburgh, Niese subleted his apartment to Walker. Makes total sense, and well, neither of them thought Niese would be back. Neither did Mets fans. Jokes on all of us really, but anyways...
Niese is currently sleeping in a hotel as he's letting Walker keep the apartment. That is kind of him — especially in comparison to the character impression Mets fans have of him. However, he would seem even more of an awful person by Mets fans if he were to kick Walker out.
Walker vouched for this nice deed by Niese by stating the following, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin:
"I've tried to take care of the place real well. He was very gracious. I don't think anyone could have foreseen this whole situation arising. He was obviously very nice about it."
Is Niese a good guy for not kicking Walker, who he let sublet his apartment, out of his current place of residence? Well....kind of. It is Niese's lease after all. He could've very well taken it back. However, does this act counteract everything else? Nope, not yet.
Maybe Niese is turning over a new leaf, I really don't know. What I do know is that I hope Niese helps the Mets start winning again.
