While some Mets players showcased their singing talents, we do not think they should be quitting their day jobs.
Last week, the Mets released a holiday video featuring some players singing – or butchering, depending on your point of view – the Christmas classic “Sleigh Bells.”
Several players, including David Wright, Matt Harvey and Dillon Gee, sang the tune in a 55-second video released to the team’s fans.
The video starts off with Wright wishing fans season’s greetings with a snowy image of Citi Field in the background.
From there, the players each sing a line from the classic tune, surely making everyone cringe as they watch.
Infielder Justin Turner was especially cheery in the video, leaning on Lucas Duda’s shoulder, snapping his fingers and singing “outside the snow is falling and friends are calling ‘yoo hoo.'”
While we’re sure some fans appreciate, and maybe even laughed at the video, we at QConf believe they care more about what moves the team makes this winter. Chris Young isn’t exactly anything to write home about.
In fact, as Mets representatives meet with prospects like free agent former Yankees Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson, the lack of major moves tends to hurt even more. And a funny holiday video will likely not do enough to mend that damage…
