One of the best things about the 2022 season for the New York Mets was, of course, closer Edwin Diaz coming into games to the sounds of Timmy Trumpet and Blasterjaxx’s Narco, with mascots Mr. and Mrs. Met “playing” along and fans going nuts. It immediately became one of the all-time best entrance songs for closers.
But with the Mets struggling to get anything going against the San Diego Padres in Game 3 of their Wild Card series, Buck Showalter brought in Diaz to pitch in the eighth and stop the bleeding.
And MLB fans couldn’t believe Mr. and Mrs. Met were out there on the trumpets:
they are doing the Edwin Diaz trumpet intro down 4 runs in the 8th. I am enjoying this more than I should. pic.twitter.com/iAhGJlIogJ
