Rules for wrestling with Jacob deGrom --— Tim Reilly (@LifeOfTimReilly) June 29, 2021
No. 1: Play dead
No. 2: If you hurt him, become dead
No. 3: Don't wrestle with Jacob deGrom https://t.co/A9FapoFQtc
I have to imagine this isn't the first time deGrom has sought out a sparring partner, and I have to imagine this isn't the first time a teammate took a dive. When teammates see that look in deGrom's eye they must go into Toy Story mode and collapse to the floor. Swallow any ounce of pride you might have for the greater good.
It wouldn't surprise me if Uncle Stevie hands a little bonus cash to anyone who lays on their back for deGrom. And if you don't, well, I fear for what might happen to you. The bench mob might be called upon to put in some late-night hours for anyone who dares fight back.
I would, however, be ecstatic to never see another deGrom wrestling video. Wrap Jake up in bubble wrap every second he's not on the mound. We must do whatever it takes to protect this national treasure.
And if we're being honest, Jake would probably be the best wrestler on the planet if he really wanted to. What can't that man do?
Tailgate with us on Saturday September 16th at Citi Field! Kick the night off with us in the Marina Lot! The Mets take on the Reds at 7:10pm so we expect fans to start showing up around 3pm. If you can't swing that early, just get there when ya get there.
