Mets Will Host Michael Kay Night Friday Vs. Braves

Before the start of the 2012 Major League Baseball season, New York radio "personality" Michael Kay predicted the Mets would win between 55-59 games and be a 100+ loss team. During their recent road trip, the Mets surpassed his prediction and brought their win total to a gaudy 65. To celebrate this triumphant  accomplishment, the Mets will celebrate "Michael Kay Night" on Friday, September 7 when they return to Citi Field to take on the Atlanta Braves.  As part of the promotion, the first 15,000 fans entering Citi Field for the 7:10 PM game will receive a commemorative t-shirt.

The shirt, made by local t-shirt company The 7 Line, proudly boasts the Mets accomplishment of 60+ wins while also adding the tag line "Suck On That, Michael Kay!"

But what does the team say to those who accuse them of celebrating mediocrity with this promotion. "We actually think it's quite fitting.", said one Mets executive. "I mean we're talking about a guy who has built a career on mediocrity. I don't see anything wrong with having a little fun while we kill time between R.A. Dickey starts."

As for Kay, the Mets have invited him to throw out the first pitch but have yet to receive no response from the radio host.

One thing is for sure though, the players seem to really love the idea. Relief pitcher Jon Rauch tweeted this photo earlier today:

Tickets for Michael Kay Night are available at Citi Field, by calling 718-507-TIXX or at
