Buck Showalter was devastated to learn that Shakira wouldn’t be throwing out the first pitch for the Mets

Almost a month and a half into this MLB season, the Mets, for once, have little to complain about. At 22-12, New York not only sits at the top of the NL East, but they also have the best record in the National League.

Even the TOOTBLAN’s are skewed in their favor!

On Saturday, with his team cruising before a matchup against the Mariners (+1.5 at Tipico Sportsbook), manager Buck Showalter had a different complaint. One wholly divorced from anything related to baseball:

Why isn’t Honored Guest — international pop sensation Shakira — throwing out the first pitch at Citi Field?

Oh, baby, when you talk like that, you make a manager go mad.

Someone has to answer for this travesty and help poor Buck out.

Update 8:09 pm: A rain delay between the Mets and Mariners gave Buck the moment he’s been dreaming of. What a happy ending for all.

Never say Shakira doesn’t deliver for her fans.
