Mets Outfielder Becomes Violently Ill from His Own Undercooked Chicken
We're barely into Spring Training, but the New York Mets have already started Mets-ing like it's August.
One of their outfielders, the inevitable Brandon Nimmo, decided to cook himself a meal, which is a perfectly reasonable thing to do.
However, according to multiple sources inside the Mets organization, the 25-year old apparently doesn't know how to cook.
This revelation makes his choice of chicken as the meal all the more dubious.
Yes, we were indeed having chicken on this fateful evening, but things took a grim turn when Nimmo badly undercooked it.
Nimmo didn't make it, either, missing the next day's important spring game with food poisoning.
Again, it was chicken, but dude probably can't prepare fish properly, either.
Predictably, Twitter reacted quickly and decisively, focusing on the very Metsy aspects of the story:

I feel like this is very on brand for us— alyssa🍓 (@square_britches) February 27, 2019
It really is.
Nimmo himself was able to laugh at the absurdity of the situation, once he regained his color:

I present to you, “The Best of Brandon Nimmo’s Chicken Incident Media Scrum.”
One of many quotes that you will hear below: “Here’s another way Nimmo can produce the runs.”
Seriously, invest in a meat thermometer.
