The Mets lost the division, but Jeff McNeil is in line to win the National League batting title.
Gio couldn’t seem to care less about it.
“I don’t care about the damn batting race in either league. Who gives a rat’s ass?” Gio said. “It doesn’t matter. It’s just some stupid little thing. Who won the batting title last year? Who won it the year before? Nobody knows, because it doesn’t mean anything!
“I’m not knocking him. He is our guy. But he could win the batting title and go for 0-for-15 in the playoffs, and nobody will care. It’s all about the playoffs.”
Boomer couldn’t understand why a Mets fan wouldn’t be pulling for one of their own to win the award, but Gio doesn’t share the interest at all.
“Good, give him a plaque,” Gio said. “Give him a Silver Slugger. I don’t care.”
