Several members of the National League Baseball champions, the New York Mets, appeared on the late night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” David Wright, Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Wilmer Flores, were guests on the popular show’s Friday night segment, which had been previously recorded. The show aired only moments after the Kansas City Royals won the American League pennant, making them the team the Mets will need to beat to win the World Series.
During Kimmel’s opening monologue he joked about the high prices of the tickets to the World Series at Citi Field, saying that “The only people who can afford to go to a Mets game are Derek Jeter and A-Rod right now.”
Kimmel discussed several topics with the players including the proposed trade of Flores to the Milwaukee Brewers and the anger New Yorkers have towards Chase Utley of the Los Angeles Dodgers for fracturing the Mets’ Ruben Tejanda’s leg while he was going for a slide at Dodger Stadium during the National League Championship Series.
Kimmel also pulled out a Halloween costume which is supposed to remind people of deGrom’s flowing long hair, but Kimmel pointed out that the costume does double duty also as “The brunette seductress.”
