New York Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld puts the blame on the team’s collapse on Timmy Trumpet, who played closer Edwin Diaz to the mound recently.
The New York Mets were enjoying some solid success after the All-Star break with the crosstown Yankees struggling. But, as baseball goes, the momentum has shifted away from the Mets and towards the Atlanta Braves. After losing 8-2 to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night, the Mets shared first place in the NL East with the Braves, who defeated the Oakland Athletics 10-9.
What has gone wrong for the Mets? Well if you ask Mets super fan and comedian Jerry Seinfeld, he faults Timmy Trumpet.
Jerry Seinfeld faults Timmy Trumpet for Mets losing NL East lead
Timmy Trumpet collaborated with Blasterjaxx for the hit song “Narco,” which Mets closer Edwin Diaz uses to enter the game from the bullpen. In the Sept. 1 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Trumpet was live in person to play Diaz to the mound.
Since that, they have lost two out of three games to the Washington Nationals. Not only that but starting pitcher Max Scherzer was placed on the injured list due to an issue with his left side.
As you can see in the tweet above, Seinfeld spoke about the time that the Baha Men played the song “Who Let the Dogs Out,” in the 2000 World Series. That was the team’s rally song for that year, and the musical group played it ahead of Game 4. After that, the Mets lost 3-2 in Game 4 and 4-2 in Game 5 to drop the World Series to the Yankees.
Seinfeld has seen this before, and he feels that Trumpet performing live may have given the Mets “bad mojo.”
