Seems Like The Mets Bullpen Cart Will Be Back In 2019

Seems Like The Mets Bullpen Cart Will Be Back In 2019

BVW and Familia filmed a fun little video for social on Monday welcoming Jeurys back home. The focal point to the piece was the bullpen cart, and to me it seems like a slam dunk that it'll be back in 2019. If not, this was just a big tease, and I'll chalk it up to just another thing I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up for. 

Brodie Van Wagenen: "I want you to ride in this thing coming out from the bullpen during the season."

You heard that right? I mean, what else has to be said? It was straight from the mans mouth, and he's a pretty important guy. The Mets surely wouldn't let this video go up if it wasn't happening. Right?

The Diamondbacks gave their shiny new bullpen cart some laps in 2018, and our Robert Gsellman was the first Met to take a ride. He seemed to be a fan.

Am I getting a little too excited about this? Yea, probably. I like fun though, and bullpen carts are fun. I wanna see the Mets do more fun stuff at the ballpark. Yea, I also want them to win 100+ games, but one thing at a time.

This Mets bullpen cart was first spotted back in June, but has since clocked no miles. At least not publicly as far as I know. If the Mets didn't crumble in May, we may have seen some trips to the mound in 2018, but the timing really couldn't have been worse. 

It's pretty clear that things are changing in Queens, and if deGrom doesn't end up tossing a no hitter on Opening Day, I'd bank on the cart making it's comeback on April 4th at Citi Field.

Today will feel weird for many of us who have Opening Day traditions at the ballpark. It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. We’re also 4 months into this COVID world. I think we’re all accustomed to hanging at home by now.
