When you’ve had such an abysmal history of success since becoming a franchise, long-time fans tend to go a little crazy. Jerry Seinfeld is one of the most famous people on the planet. He also happens to be a die hard New York Mets fan, and he has a crazy conspiracy theory for why the Mets are falling apart.

If you’re not familiar with who Timmy Trumpet is, he is one of the artists from the song “Narco,” which plays when Edwin Diaz comes out the bullpen. Given Diaz’s success this season, it’s become a phenomena in New York. So much so, that the Mets invited Timmy Trumpet to play the song live last week against the Dodgers, creating this pretty spectacular moment.
Even as a certified Mets hater, I can admit the entire thing is pretty spectacular. Every closer should have a walk out song that strikes fear into opposing teams, and it helps when you’re the most dominant closer on the planet like Edwin Diaz.
However, some people are always going to complain, especially fans of the New York Mets, who have watched their team crumble time and time again when it matters. The truth is the Mets aren’t collapsing. They’ve played unbelievable baseball since June 1st. Unfortunately for them, the Braves have just been that much better, making up 10 games in the process.
I expect the NL East to be a dogfight; neither team will collapse down the stretch, and it will come down to the wire. But if the Mets end up in the Wild Card series, you can bet Jerry Seinfeld won’t be the only fan blaming something ridiculous for falling short.
