On Monday, the Mets selected OF Jarred Kelenic with the sixth overall pick in the MLB draft. Time will tell if it was the correct pick to make, but that won’t stop fans from speculating and giving their two cents. And who better to lead the charge of fan analysis than our very own #MetsTwitter.
So how did our beloved #MetsTwitter community take in Mr. Kelenic? Just as you’d expect. With open arms and salty rhetoric:
Some were welcoming...
Welcome to NY Jarred Kelenic! #MLBDraft #Mets— Robert O'Keefe (@Robert_OlCeefe) June 5, 2018
Some had jokes....
RIP to Jarred Kelenic’s career. And welcome to the Mets!#MetsTwitter #MLBDraft— Mets Raccoon (@mets_coon) June 4, 2018
@EvanRobertsWFAN I hear the Mets have already placed Jarred Kelenic on the 60 day DL— Big Mike 89 (@MiaFins1) June 5, 2018
He probably just assumes the @Mets are the Triple A affiliate for the Yankees and he gets to start in Triple A. Definitely has some truth to it if that’s the case. #mets #MetsTwitter— Chris (@ChrisMcAllen25) June 5, 2018
But most were as you’d expect....

Dear Jarred Kelenic,— Estee (@EsteeFIMFic) June 5, 2018
I'd like to apologize in advance for your multiple injuries & media reaming, the stupid phone calls about you to WFAN, the trade demands, & all the other horrible things which will now happen to what would have once been your career.
Nobody’s life has been ruined more today than Jarred Kelenic. Sorry man. #mets— Peter Edward (@cmduff87) June 5, 2018
The truth is, not one single fan or analyst knows how Jarred Kelenic is going to perform. But always leave it to #MetsTwitter to keep it entertaining and cynical. Whether Kelenic pans out or not, one thing is always certain: #MetsTwitter will always be out there, takin’ er easy for all us sinners.
RIP Jarred Kelenic’s possible successful future career. June 4th , 2018 #Mets— Ally Baker (@AllyBaker123) June 5, 2018
We're back! Meet up with The 7 Line Army at Xfinity Live before heading in to the game. Like last year, we're rolling with 1,500 fans and we'd love to see as many of your amazin' faces at the pre-game as possible.
We've been getting the short end of the weather stick so far this season. Hopefully that luck changes for us on Wednesday May 31st at Citi Field. The Mets take on the Phillies, and as usual we'll be hanging out in the Marina Lot beforehand.
