Nothing can go right for the New York Mets right now, including a memorial montage meant to honor members of the 1969 World Series champs.
Meet the Mets, meet the Mets, step right up and greet the Mets!
The New York Mets can’t seem to get out of their own way lately. First, it was an embarrassing confrontation with a reporter in the clubhouse. Next, it was the organization’s ham-handed response to that altercation. And then, the bullpen’s complete ineptitude is to thank for a seven-game losing streak.
But to make matters worse, the Mets made a huge mistake during their celebration of the 1969 World Series champion Mets. During a video montage with deceased players, the Mets included two guys are still alive—Jim Gosger and Jesse Hudson.

Make no mistake, Gosger and Hudson are alive. Unsurprisingly, Gosger didn’t have nice things to say about the organization. The team called him to apologize, but it doesn’t seem to change Gosger’s feelings on the organization.
It also seems that Jim may have some Mets takes of his own. pic.twitter.com/sWwSUfqeKi

This is an unfortunate mistake to make during a wonderful celebration. Oddly enough, the Saturday rain delay gave SNY a good opportunity to talk to a handful of 1969 Mets during the broadcast. However, the montage mishap is driving headlines because the Mets can never seem to stay out of their own way.
The Mets will try to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Atlanta Braves on Sunday night. The Mets have lost seven in a row and are on the verge of disappearing from playoff contention in the NL East.
