The Mets Players Weekend Jerseys Have Been Released

DGzWGASWAAEX5r5

So the Players Weekend jerseys have been released. Some are good, some are bad, some are weird. The Mets are obviously no different than every other team in baseball. Lets do a quick breakdown of what we got.

THE GOOD:

Jacob deGrom
degrom

I love the this jersey for the same reason I love Jacob deGrom. Dude probably threw a gem, got asked what his nickname should be, shrugged his shoulders, said “Jake”, and then brushed the most beautiful locks in baseball. In related news, I fucking love Jacob deGrom.

Michael Conforto

conforto

I do enjoy that Conforto chose Scooter simply because his teammates started call him it out of the blue. However, the fact he didn’t shout out his mom on his jersey is a crime against humanity and moms everywhere.

TJ Rivera
mmmm

Be more of a guy from the Bronx with a jersey that says T-Butta on it. You can’t.

THE BAD:

Travis d’Arnaud
trav

There is not a jersey in all of Major League Baseball that more suitably fits a player than Travis d’Arnaud being called Lil D. Going from what was thought to be the better part of the RA Dickey trade to wearing a jersey that basically says Small Dick Travis is a legit fall from grace. I am now calling d’Arnaud “Small Dick Travis” for the rest of his career.

Matt Harvey
harv

Even Matt Harvey knows that he’s no longer the Dark Knight. That’s a potent mix of depressing and refreshing. Having a nickname as bad as “Harv” however is just depressing. You need to get new friends if the best nickname they can come up with for you is Harv.

However upon further review it says Moncho. I don’t know what Moncho means. I looked all over the internet to find it’s meaning (I used Google Translate and couldn’t find anything).

THE WEIRD (AND THE SPANISH ONES I DON’T KNOW THE MEANING TO):

Josh Smoker
bear

Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see? I see a reliever with a 7.32 ERA looking at me.

Asdrubal Carbera

assman

What the fuck Asdrubal? I gave you a perfectly good nickname last season and you couldn’t just have them slap it on your back for the good of Barstool and jersey sales?

Then again, even though I don’t know what Chiquitin means, I do know that I love the Chiquita Banana from Stew Leonards. I love that delicious, nutritious bitch with all my heart.

Rene Rivera
mocho

I thought this said Mongo and I was overjoyed. Mongo is an all-time great nickname and it has nothing to do with Mike Francesa. I mean look at Rene Rivera. That face SCREAMS Mongo.

???
dwright

I don’t know who the hell D-Dub is. But I do know it’s pretty fucked up to have given some random player David Wright’s number so soon after his death.

P.S. Thank God that Bartolo didn’t rock a Big Sexy jersey for the Twins. That may have killed KFC. Instead I have no clue why Morales is on the back of his jersey. Maybe he’s just a really big Kendrys Morales fan?
