We start with this guy who heads the small pod of celebrity Met fans, which apparently also includes Harper Lee. (Put that in your pipe and smoke it you erudite, literary snob Red Sox fans) :
Based on that photo alone, Jerry Seinfeld, or little yerry Seinfeld for that matter, may have been a better manager than this guy:
Jerry Manuel never quite seemed to get the intricacies of the double switch, but maybe he can merge his Jerryness with Seinfeld to form a Voltron like super Jerry and vanquish the Dodgers.
However, the manager can only do so much. In the end, it all comes down to pitching and Met fans hope that DeGrom pitches like this guy who pitched a complete game to lock down the 1969 World Series:
|Jerry S stops by spring training to talk with Jerry M after a visit to CVS|
Instead of like this guy who was a lousy Met but is a Toms River, NJ native, VCU grad, and is the current Mariners GM:
If DeGrom (who Mrs. Marls says looks like Hollywood Steve Huey of Yacht Rock fame) does, it gives the Metsies a good chance to win and that would make the Jerry in Caicos jerry happy.
As Whit correctly points out in the comments, we should not forget Jerry Grote who caught game five of the 69' series in what might be the greatest Jerry moment in the history of sports.
