New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz’s entrance gets the people going

There are walk-up songs, and then there’s the immersive experience that brings Edwin Diaz closer to trotting from the bullpen to the pitching mound at Citi Field.

We can’t say that the lights-out closer’s dominant season – Diaz has 26 saves and a 1.39 ERA and has hit 91 batters in just 45⅓ innings – is entirely down to Blasterjaxx & Timmy Trumpet’s “Narco”, though the electrical entry certainly didn’t hurt.

The Diaz show has become such an attraction that the Mets TV broadcast doesn’t even go on a commercial break when he comes on in the ninth inning. Rather, the camera follows the pitcher as the crowd stands, dances, and claps in what feels like an anticipatory celebration of another Mets win.

If Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Braves, in which Diaz Dansby defeated Swanson, Matt Olson and Austin Riley by 14 fields, was any indication, Mets fans will have plenty of reasons to keep the party going for the rest of the season .

Excuse us while we’re running through a wall.

Even Buck Showalter has embraced the hype. On Monday, the manager admitted to postponing his bathroom break to observe the moment himself.

If you’re an engaged Mets fan and don’t use the trumpets as the strike song at your upcoming nuptials, that’s a failure on your part.
