New York Mets: still no image of Jed Lowrie as a Met on ‘MLB: The Show’

Don’t let video games like ‘MLB The Show’ fool you, Jed Lowrie is a member of the New York Mets and we have the evidence to prove it.

If you’re an avid gamer, something I might have to take up again after this neverending hiatus, you may have noticed that ‘MLB The Show’ still doesn’t have an image of Jed Lowrie in a New York Mets uniform. Lucky for you, however, I have three pieces of evidence that should prove to you that he is a member of the Metropolitans.

First, there is video evidence of Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen introducing Lowrie to the media back in January of 2019. Sadly, only a little over 6,000 people viewed the introduction on YouTube, so in this day and age, it may as well have never happened.

Secondly, he did appear in nine games last season. You may not know this if you go to MLB.COM and check the leaderboards because in 9 plate appearances he had 0 hits. Since MLB sorts their leaderboards by batting average, technically Lowrie doesn’t have one, so he won’t be found there.

Fortunately, reliable sites like Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs have dedicated pages just for Lowrie. Both sites list him as a member of the Mets… so there’s that.

The final piece of evidence is really quite simple. Just look at the featured image of this piece. In this image, Lowrie is rocking the Mets’ orange and blue and, yes, he’s playing in a game!

In fact, that image is from September 8, 2019, and it depicts Lowrie (#4), in a Mets uniform against the Philadelphia Phillies. This was only Lowrie’s second appearance in a Mets uniform.

That day, Lowrie came in to pinch hit for Jeurys Familia in the bottom of the 9th inning. He struck out for the first out of the inning.

So, there you have it. Three pieces of evidence that clearly show that Jed Lowrie is, in fact, a member of the New York Mets.
