Meet the Mets, Mock the Mets

Step right up and beat the Mets!

Perhaps you noticed that the Mets seem to have adopted the Texas Rangers’ “claw” for when they score runs. It’s an air high five, generally performed by douches in bars, but now, apparently, also by the New York Mets.

Exhibit A: Watch the Mets dugout after they scored the tying run in the sixth inning. There’s Jose Ray Ass clawing Ronny Paulino (I’d really rather not know what the Mets do in their free time).

Exhibit B: Watch Josh Turner go claws up after the Mets took the lead in the seventh.

It appears Carlos Ruiz didn’t appreciate the Mets' (new?) gesture. Watch El Choocheon mock it as the Phillies piled on runs in the ninth inning.

You'll have to get over the jump to see it.

*I attended most of the games during the previous homestand, so I wasn’t able to see this sort of stuff in the dugout recently. I’m assuming Chooch hasn’t done it before.

  1. damn dude, when i thought you couldnt hate anymore. I guess players are not allowed to celebrate how they want, and that little mexican catcher has no business mocking reyes…

  2. First of all numb nuts, he’s from Panama. Secondly, he’s had far more success in baseball than Jose “celebrate first, win second” Reyes. GFYS.

  3. Look at the Mut fans trying to talk smack. Go by a share of your floundering franchise guy. Everything about the Mets organization stinks right now. So yea let’s go talk trash on a Philly blog site? Losers, wish we could play you every game. Thanks for always choking…come again!

  4. Mets- first win and than celebrate, but the claw is ours, so please try again. Perhaps you can use the jerk off sign as this will better represent your organization. Regards.

  5. “Mets- first win and than celebrate, but the claw is ours, so please try again. Perhaps you can use the jerk off sign as this will better represent your organization. Regards”
    Should we really go into a conversation about the Mets organization?

  6. It’s funny that a Mets fan is talking about how they always win. What happened at the end of the ’07 and ’08 seasons?

  7. Instead of the jerk-off “celebration” maybe they should do something even more fitting..like..I don’t know..getting bukkakied on?

  8. Soup was buy one, get one free at the supermarket this morning. I think I’ll buy 10% of the Mets with my savings.

  9. @MIke Your team is 8.5 games back and under .500.
    That is very likely not to change much this season. Find a new hobby.
    Good day.

  10. The muts suck that much that they can’t come up with their own celebration….but the muts fan from the 1st post has a point, making fun of the them is like stealing candy from a baby (haha, which we’ve all done)and is almost not worth it….almost! Kyle should start some polls as to what these idiots are going to do next?
    Can’t wait to see who they get rid of and what they get back, i.e. Jose Reyes and David Wright to the Yankees for free advertising on their network, Jorge Posada’s contract which will be quadrupled and spread out over 50 years at 600% interest.

  11. Generally speaking you should have to be a good team before you come up with celebration theme, ala the Rangers last year. Otherwise prepare to get mocked.

  12. Come back and comment all over this blog talking shit when you can actually win 80 games a year. Your entire organization sucks from the owner to the players to the fans. The laughingstock of baseball.

  13. hahahahaha wow i didnt think i could love chooch anymore, but here it is. this is just great. as for all you mets fans out there: suck it. your team sucks, you all suck and your owners a dbag. have fun being in last place when your beloved jose gets his
    “crawford” money AND they have to trade the only good player on your squad, mr wright, to save some $$ before having to shell out, what is it again, 2 billion? way to go

  14. Get ’em Chooch! <3
    Instead of wasting time trying to troll Phillies blogs with nonsense, maybe pick up a second job and buy no-show tickets to all the M_ts' home games. Might help them not become a financial joke and actually compete in 5 years. Enjoy the next few years of bargain basement rosters fellas, we'll keep doing what we do (PS, it's win).

  15. Chooch is known to be a great mimic and a really funny guy, so this doesn’t surprise me at all. The most annoying thing about watching the Mutts is the unearned sense of accomplishment they have! If I have to watch Reyes run around like an idiotic 10-year old, I’m gonna puke!
