New York Mets fans at Citi Field weren’t exactly up for the team’s (interesting) decision to share a video tribute to Max Scherzer.
The future Hall of Famer and his Texas Rangers visited the Mets on Monday to begin a three-game series. Though he didn’t even last two full seasons with the NL East club, Scherzer received a video tribute from the organization anyway.
And as you might guess, Mets supporters weren’t having it:
In the 2021 offseason, “Mad Max” signed a massive three-year deal with the Mets worth $130 million. But with the Mets rapidly falling out of the playoff race leading up to the deadline, they waved the white flag and traded aces in Scherzer (to Texas) and Justin Verlander (to the Houston Astros).
The 39-year-old Scherzer held up his end of the bargain with the Mets, going 20-9 with a 3.02 ERA with 294 strikeouts. They qualified for the postseason last year, but were dispatched by the San Diego Padres in the NL Wild Card Series.
Scherzer and the Rangers got the first laugh on Monday against his old team, rallying from 3-0 down to win 4-3 thanks to a pair of runs in the top half of the ninth inning.
