This is one reason why social media can be pretty cool these days. It’s always neat to see stuff we as fans don’t get to see every day. In this example, veteran Mets’ reliever LaTroy Hawkins snaps a little photo on the team plane following a win in Minneapolis this afternoon.
Hawk posted it on his Instagram feed, and it immediately became a runaway hit with Mets fans everywhere.
Why? Entitled The Future, it represents just that. Matt Harvey. Zack Wheeler. Travis D’Arnaud. Wilmer Flores. Juan Lagares. All in one terrific image. In many ways, the best of the Mets farm. All playing now with the big club. Showing us what might be possible. The beginning of the realization of Alderson’s vision and a return to relevance?
Only time will tell, but the future sure looked hopeful in this shot. So bright, in fact, you might need shades?
