What Are The Mets Dressing Up As For Halloween This Year?

What Are The Mets Dressing Up As For Halloween This Year?

by Nick Giacone October 30, 2018 0 Comments

Another October has passed without any meaningful baseball from our beloved Mets. But that doesn’t mean the team can’t have fun. Once again, the guys have had plenty of time on their hands to plan the perfect Halloween costumes. Here’s how some of the guys will go out trick-or-treating:

Brodie Van Wagenen as The Wolf of Wall Street

First order of business for the new GM? Let everyone know he’s a true money man. And what better way then to emulate a man who was once ‘King’ of the stock market. However, Brodie’s fate needs to follow a different path than Jordan Belfort’s if the Mets want to contend. That means no bribes to league officials, no fraudulent contracts, and no all-night benders that attract the attention of the FBI. He’ll surely have his work cut out for him in New York!

Michael Conforto as Maximus Decimus Meridius

It’s time for Michael Conforto to come to light as our hero and restore order in Flushing. And like Russell Crowe’s character in Gladiator, he must slay all enemies along the way. That means improving upon his 2018 campaign, which was slowed by his shoulder injury from the previous season. If the Mets want to be relevant, Conforto must play like an MVP candidate. That means no more sub .250 batting averages. At the end of 2019 there is only one question that Conforto should be asking the fans and media alike: “Are you not entertained?!”

Robert Gsellman as Jon Snow

Gsellman already has the right hair for a Game of Thrones character, but his storyline could also mimic that of the show’s star. Like Jon Snow, Gsellman has had an unlikely path to success, playing an unlikely hero in 2016’s wild card run as well as becoming one of the more valuable pieces in our bullpen last season. But Gsellman’s story remains unfinished as does Jon Snow’s. Many GOT fans believe that when the show is all wrapped up, Jon Snow will be king. Does this mean Gsellman is destined to be our closer? Both fates will be determined in 2019.

Peter Alonso as Bane

The Dark Knight era in Queens officially ended last year. Now it’s time for a villain to emerge and who better than Peter Alonso? Peter has a chip on his shoulder for not being called up last year, despite tearing it up in the minors and earning a fair shot. Well, now it’s time for him to reign terror in Gotham (in a good way). Expect Alonso to not only make the Mets roster coming out of Spring Training in 2019, but for him to be the starting 1B on Opening Day. Remember, Peter Alonso’s enemies merely adopted the dark. He was born in it.

Keith Hernandez as Turd Ferguson

It’s no secret that Keith can make some outlandish remarks in the booth, much like his Halloween persona from SNL’s Celebrity Jeopardy. With this costume, Keith pays homage to two legends, Norm Macdonald and Burt Reynolds (RIP). With his newfound popularity on Twitter, previous appearances on mainstream TV, and uncanny resemblance to Norm Macdonald’s character, Keith might just want to try his luck on Celebrity Jeopardy. What could go wrong?

Happy Halloween!
