The STOMP, The BACKBREAKER… whatever it's called. We absolutely love Jenrry's fire. It's fun. It's exciting. It brings life to the ballpark. Those are all things we should embrace. Sure, the opposing teams don't like it. Why should they? They just lost.
We are so excited about this new Jenrry Mejia t-shirt. We teamed up with Mets fan and ever so talented artist Michael Borkowski on this one. We've worked with Michael a few times in the past and his work is always top notch. If his art looks familiar, there might be good reason. Since 1997 Michael has worked as a Storyboard Artist on many animated series including "Wolverine and the X-Men", "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", "Dragon Tales", "Scooby Doo" and many, many more. Follow Michael on TWITTER and check out his WEBSITE.
This shirt is now on deck. No set release date, but should be available in the not too distant future.
Help decide the shirt color! Blue isn't an option due to his jersey color. We don't want the graphic to get lost on the shirt. Orange pops the best, and is electric looking (like Mejia). Grey is usually a safe bet, but not many people like wearing grey in warm weather. LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. PLEASE HELP US OUT AND VOTE BELOW!
Mejia has since toned it back a little since this "fishing" finishing move, but closed the season with an exclamation point on September 28th. We're looking forward to many more in 2015!
The Mets improved offensively and defensively behind the plate without losing any pieces from their roster or farm system, and without surrendering draft pick compensation. That is what I call a win-win.
