The Mets won’t show George Springer the money.
And Springer on Saturday night showed the Mets and their revenge fans what they missed with a magical catch and run home in Blue Jays’ 10-3 win.
“Ultimately, at the end of the day, I play for the Toronto Blue Jays,” Springer said. “I am out there to play, to achieve success, to do whatever I can for our team.
“I wouldn’t care what was happening on the other side. I am very happy to be here. This is where I’ve been for the past six months, and I love it every second of it. “
The three-time All-Star record, limited and diminished this season by right quadriceps strain, has the Catch of the Year candidate diving, flying, backhand near the center left wall by Brandon Nimmo in the third round.
As he stood up, he shouted, “Let’s go!”
“I didn’t hesitate,” Springer said. “I feel great physically. I was able to make a good jump and was able to get to it. “
Nimmo: “I’m glad he didn’t break his neck because of that, because being about 6 feet closer, he’d go right into the wall. … Play Superman. “
When asked where he would rate his fishing, Springer said: “That’s probably my favorite.”
Springer gave the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead with their eighth home run to take the lead over Taijuan Walker in the half.
Springer made an easy ball in the center right that somehow managed to win Brandon Drury’s double in the Mets’ three-time fifth inning.
The Mets offered Springer a $120 million contract as a free agent, but the former UConn Husky and Astro were lured to Toronto with a six-year $150 million deal.
Citi Field loyalists, have memorized him with “The Fraudster”.
