New York Mets Players Continue To Amazingly Mirror Superhero Personas

Steven Matz – SuperMatz (Superman)

If there’s one guy on this list who’s a work-in-progress, it’s most definitely Steven Matz.

Not a work-in-progress as far as his development in the bigs, as that seems to be moving swimmingly, but a work-in-progress as far as the nickname is concerned.

SuperMatz it is.

Admittedly, it’s tough to give the No. 3 or 4 starter on the roster the Superman nickname. After all, this is the superhero of all superheros. He’s the guy all other superheros are measured by.

Perhaps, though, it could fit. It’s no secret Terry Collins and the Mets organization have deep and incredible love for the lefty. And after a rocky opening to the season, the kid has been on fire.

Let’s see. Maybe he does evolve into the SuperMatz nickname.

Besides, look at the photo above. It appears as though the’s moving faster than a speeding bullet.
