Meet the Mets

The Mets traveled to Philly for a wild and crazy game that featured Noah Syndergaard stealing the Phillie Phanatic’s ATV, an attempted decapitation of Asdrubal Cabrera, a plucky start from Jacob deGrom, and a pair of homers from none other than Jay Bruce.

During the game, Edubray Ramos decided to celebrate Passover by passing a ball over Asdrubal Cabrera’s head. It was not well-received by Cabrera, as Ramos was likely seeking revenge for Cabrera flipping his bat after hitting a home run off him last season.
