Yesterday, newcomer Aaron Loup quickly endeared himself to Met fans while answering a question about being an opener. After responding “absolutely,” he added, “Who wouldn't want to be the guy to start the game, and then sit in the clubhouse and drink a few brews on the back end of it?”

With Aaron Loup
He seems like my kind of guy
Pitch an inning or two
Then cheers to you
Sit back and watch for the rest of the night
A solid opener gets the bottle opener 🎶🎶

3) Pete Alonso
I wanted to go with at least one current player. Pete gives off such good vibes and it's clear he loves playing for the Mets. There are people that shy away from NY, Pete doesn't. He's embraced the challenge of bringing a championship back to Queens since day one. That’s captain material.
A guy like that is a guy you want to have a beer with.
2) Wilmer Flores
This guy loved the Mets so much that he cried at the news of being traded. We all know the rest of that story. I'd love nothing more than to have a beer with Wilmer, ask him about that magical walk-off moment and talk about why we love the Mets so much. There has to be more to that story, and a drink might just get it out of him.
1) Turk Wendell
Turk wore teeth of the animals he hunted and killed around his neck on the mound. He brushed his teeth in the dugout between innings, and wore No. 99 as an homage to Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn. If you're looking for a more interesting Met to have a beer with, look no further than Turk. If he's half as bizarre in real life as he was on the field, we’d be in for a weird and wild night.
Let's toss a few cold ones back and see where the night takes us, Turk.
Honorable Mention: Jason Bay. OOF. That guy definitely needs a beer. Also, he's buying for the anguish he caused me...
