The New York Mets are the top team in the National League, but they have one glaring issue that doesn’t seem to go away. The Mets get hit by more pitches than any other team in the MLB, and their fans’ frustrations are beginning to boil over.
SNY Network posted a video of their most recent hit-by-pitch on Twitter, and you can see that the players are beginning to get just as frustrated as their fans.
