We’re just a few hours into our Wednesday, and the New York Mets are already a lock for the corniest video of the day. At practice, they pretend to record the final out in Game Seven of the World Series before playing a single game this season.
It’s a tough watch:

They mean well, but man is that cheesy. I guess they should visualize themselves as champions before it ever happens, but they probably should keep such mindfulness in house. Cameras are everywhere, and now the team has unwittingly put pressure on themselves by making their goals public.
New Mets’ owner Steve Cohen has no problem embracing the “title or bust” motto, and for that, he deserves some credit. For his sake, we hope he delivers. However, knowing the Mets–this thing is about to collapse on their heads.
