Look, Jim Breuer still believes his beloved New York Mets can win the World Series. But let’s just say he’s also starting to realize that beating the Kansas City Royals is going to be a tall order – especially after last night’s 7-1 thumping, which put K.C. up two-games-to-none.
“The Mets are done. We still gotta come home, but we’re not coming back from this game,” Breuer says. “[The Royals] deGrominated the deGrominator. These Royals are savages.”
The deGrominator, of course, is Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom, who’s been sublime in the postseason up to this point, but was knocked around for four runs by the Royals on Wednesday night. But hours before Game 2 began, Breuer – still groggy from watching all five hours and 14 innings of Game 1 – was understandably optimistic that deGrom would be able to pitch New York right back into this series.
“I’m still exhausted from last night – I feel like I have a loss hangover,” he says. “I have a lot of confidence in deGrom. To me, he’s our ace. He’s like a young James Hetfield. I’m just waiting for him to go ‘Yea-haah!'”
Hours later, he wasn’t quite as boisterous, though ever the professional, Breuer still filed the second installment of his Fandemonium series, which not only features his roller coaster ride through Game 2, but a special cameo by his mom – who just so happened to be celebrating her 89th birthday on Wednesday. Some present the Mets got for her.
