It is 2021 and the Mets players are beefing with their own fan base.
During the offseason, the New York Mets were the most celebrated team with the moves they were making to better the team, but failed to do anything on the field thus far during the season.,
The team had won 2 of 15 games before they railed off a 2-game winning streak this weekend.
During their game against Washington, Javy Baez and several of the players could be seen doing thumbs-down celebrations. No one had a clue what it was until after the game.
Baez explained that it was in response to the fan base booing them for being terrible on the field. What’s even crazier is that they’ve been doing this for at least a week and just now got asked about it.
“We’re not machines, we’re going to struggle. … It just feels bad when I strikeout and I get booed. … We’re going to do the same thing to let them know how it feels,” he said.
“They’re going to get booed when we get success.”
