Video: The most ridiculous moments in MLB this season

Baseball, for all its talk about unwritten rules and tradition and playing the game the right way, remains ridiculous. Don’t think that a sport with 162 games, played almost daily during the summer, doesn’t succumb to its fair share of ridiculousness.

That’s why in this week’s installment of my Open Mike video series, I’m counting down the most ridiculous things that happened in Major League Baseball this season. The postseason is right around the corner, and soon enough, that will consume us. We’ll just be thinking about such-and-such walk-off win or criticizing a bullpen decision.

We won’t be remembering that Mr. Met flipped off a fan or Madison Bumgarner’s dirt-bike injury. And that type of ridiculousness deserves to be remembered.

Mr. Met gave a fan the finger, which is totally ridiculous. (NBC)

So without further ado, I invite you to watch the video above and re-live some of the most ridiculous moments of the season. More ridiculousness is surely coming in the postseason. But it just won’t be the same without the Mets.
