Maybe it’s time for the Mets to stop playing dress-up and start playing winning baseball. After those photos that the Mets proudly posted to the team’s Twitter account showing players dressed in Western gear for their trip to Houston, the team is now paying homage to Cinco de Mayo with an arguably offensive, definitely stereotypical image on its Facebook page:
Yes, that’s David Wright on the right and Mike Nickeas in the center (along with bullpen catcher Dave Racaniello).
The Mets said the Western thing was to build team camaraderie, yet they went out and lost three straight to the lowly Astros. It’s nice to have a loose clubhouse, but grown men playing dress-up? It seems a bit silly, don’t you think?
