VargACE: #MetsTwitter’s best reactions to Jason Vargas’ Complete Game Shutout

Usually when we check in on #MetsTwitter, it’s in reaction to a devastating loss or a boneheaded front office move. And usually when Jason Vargas is trending on Twitter, Mets fans are dragging him through the mud. Neither was the case Wednesday night:

Yes, you read that correctly. Jason Vargas dominated the Giants with a five-hit, complete game shutout as the Mets cruised to a 7-0 victory in front of the home crown. He even added some lumber with a base hit to center field in the third inning. And while the Mets have plenty of woes to sort through as they attempt to climb back above .500, Vargas has quietly been one of the few bright spots as of late:

Enter #MetsTwitter. Instead of tweeting their typical ridicule, they’re heaping praise. Some are even apologizing! Yes, the same rambunctious group of Twitter ruffians that tortured Jason Vargas over the past year-and-a-half has done an about-face. Presented below is an array of positive Jason Vargas takes from #MetsTwitter that previously lived in uncharted territory.

Congratulatory Tweets:

Conspiracy Theories:

Utter disbelief:

Existentialism and Divine Intervention:

There’s even a #VargACE movement…

Vargas has heard it plenty from fans during his mostly-disappointing Mets tenure. But he’s continued to do his job and has rewarded us with a recent stretch of solid pitching that has culminated with Wednesday night’s performance. So let’s all take part and join #MetsTwitter in congratulating Mr. Vargas for not only his best pitching performance as a Met, but for one of the best performances from our rotation in the 2019 season.
