May earns a memorable signature Mets moment

Through the many innings I expect May to pitch this year, there’s going to be one that includes a memorable signature Mets moment.

Clarify, I predict it will be a positive one. While he will surely hang his head low after giving up a home run at some point in 2021, this one moment we see captured in an image will be a positive one.

Because May will be pitching in the late innings of games, we know exactly what it will be. There are really only two options for a relief pitcher. He either strikes out a guy with runners in scoring position or he can get an inning-ending double play. Either way, May is going to have to work his way out of some trouble for this momentous occasion.

Originally, I thought about going really bold with this final May prediction and place it squarely in the playoffs. Is it illegal to do that? Am I touching the money too much to already start thinking about the Mets’ 2021 postseason run?

If the Mets do get to October baseball this year, I can definitely see May coming into games late with everything on the line. It’s exactly what his role will be during the regular season. During the playoffs, we just crank up the volume a little bit higher.

May’s signature moment will include a fist pump, a scream, and possibly some other form of expression we see from pitchers. Maybe things will get real tense and we’ll even see him point at the opposing team’s bench.
