Tomas Nido been the primary catcher for the New York Mets this season due to James McCann’s absence. The extra playing time hasn’t ruined his sense of humor. Nido remains the class clown of the Mets.
Often overlooked because of how irregularly he gets to speak, he confirmed after the Mets’ win on Wednesday that he is still the team comedian.
Mets catcher Tomas Nido remains the funniest man on the roster
Not only did Nido retain his crown, he also eased some angst by letting the fans know the season isn’t over:
Nido’s tongue-in-cheek response shows that Mets fans do follow what the fans have to say on social media. It’s still strange to me. But for many of these players, they never really knew a world without social media. It has taken over our lives in the last 15+ years which accounts for more than half of the lives of many players on this team.
Apparently, there’s no avoiding it. Cries from fans after each loss that the Mets’ season is over does reach them. As Nido points out, they take it in stride and have a nice laugh at how panic-stricken some fans can be.
Because the Mets have held first place for so long this season, it was only a matter of time before signs of doom and gloom came about. Unlike the 2015 season when they had to storm back in the second half, expectations were high for this year’s club. It’s a no-win situation. Certain fans will believe each loss is one step closer to a collapse. If the Mets were in the position of the Atlanta Braves, they wouldn’t be buying into the team until they actually do take over first place.
That’s the fun part about being a fan. We’re irrational.
Luckily for us, we have Nido to confirm our most irrational fears are unjustified. The season is back on!
