The Mets Came Roaring Back and So Did The Announcers

What came first, the chicken or the egg? What came first, the comeback or the call?

The Philadelphia Phillies had another Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day at the office. It seems they've had a lot of those. Starting the ninth inning, the Phillies were winning 7-1. Then the unthinkable happened.

There have been some epic comebacks in MLB history. There have also been some epic meltdowns in MLB history. This can be called whichever you'd like. Schadenfreude is more fun and the Phillies bullpen meltdowns are legendary the last few years, so maybe let's go there. The "that's so Mets" schadenfreude has also been funny the last 7 years or so, too, though. I can't pick. This is an incredible comeback, though. Scoring seven runs in the 9th is incredible. Equally impressive was Gary Cohen, the Mets play-by-play announcer, getting more and more excited with every moment of this comeback. Give this a watch. 

One of the last six-plus run comebacks I can remember came against the Mets in 2019. It's worth noting that it was against the Washington Nationals, who eventually won the 2019 World Series. 

We're now a month into the 2022 MLB season and the Mets have already had some special moments. Are they the team of destiny? Could 2022 truly be the year that "lolmets" could be retired as a nickname for this bad-luck franchise? Jacob deGrom hasn't even pitched this year and the Mets are five and a half games up in the National League East. They're 19-9 and so far have kept their feet on the gas pedal. Is this the year of the Mets?
