Mets fans have more ways than ever to keep up with their favorite players
The offseason can be a lonely time for baseball fans. The weather gets colder, the days get shorter, in general, it’s just not the best of times without our favorite pastime. Thanks to the new age of social media though, it’s easier than ever to stay up to date with our favorite players, and see what they’re up when not on the diamond.
Out of all the social networks out there, Instagram is probably one of those that gives us the most insight into players’ lives. Since it is one of my favorites, I wanted to share my top Mets players accounts on Instagram starting with…
Easily the best Mets player Instagram account belongs to Thor (@nsyndergaard). Not only does Noah post regularly on his account, but he actually gives us great pictures, videos and other funny, and sharable content.
We miss ‘Tolo already too, Noah.
Our Mets shortstop loves to use Instagram. Asdrubal Cabrera (@ajcabrera13) treats his fans to pictures and videos of his family, friends, and at times, even gems like the one below. I never knew he was a cowboy.
At least Cespedes will have another partner to ride with during spring training.
Mets fans have known Jose Reyes for over a decade, so seeing him back home where his career took off has brought back a ton of memories. Jose is also pretty happy to be in Queens, and his Instagram account (@lamelaza_7) is proof of that.
Throughout the season, Jose posted tons of pictures of him and his teammates, as well as giving us a behind the scenes look at everything Mets. This offseason, his posts are mostly #workoutgoals – as Instagram lovers would say – as he shows us how he’s staying in shape and ready for next season.
The Dark Knight of Gotham, Matt Harvey, mixes it up quite well on Instagram (@mattharvey33). While he may not post as much as Noah or Jose, Harvey’s pictures usually tell us a good little story about what he’s up to. This is even more so true when he’s making fun of himself like in the post below.
A fan favorite, Wilmer Flores keeps his 47,500 followers entertained on Instagram (@catire_4) by posting a good amount of content throughout the year – even during the season. His posts are usually selfies or pictures with other players and family, so Wilmer fans should definitely follow along to see their favorite player when he’s not wearing the blue and orange.
What a good looking group of Mets players!
La Potencia rounds out this list as his return to the Mets was acknowledged and celebrated on his Instagram account (@ycespedes52) as well. Yo has laid low this offseason so far on social media, but he’s still worthy of a follow mainly because every time he posts something, it’s usually pretty awesome. Case in point, his last post.
These six Amazin’s will be back in 2017, and will hopefully be making new memories with the Mets to show off on social media.
