Meet the Mets Rally Parakeet
The Mets have quickly become the hottest team in baseball (besides Toronto) and fans are beginning to think a mysterious parakeet may be behind the success. No one is sure when the bird first arrived but its Twitter account (yes, it has its own account) hints that it's been 12 games. On Wednesday, Yoenis Cespedes noticed the bright yellow parakeet and wore an arm band in tribute. Sure enough, he broke a 1-for-18 Citi Field slump with a home run that night. Whether you believe in rally parakeets or not, it's hard to argue that life is much better for Mets fans than two weeks ago.
