Like their crosstown counterparts, the New York Mets are in the middle of a huge second half slide. Entering Wednesday night's action they had lost three of the last four and -- after leading all season -- had fallen into a first-place tie atop the NL East with the Atlanta Braves.

Jerry Seinfeld took to Instagram and blamed Timmy Trumpet's recent in-game performance for the team's recent collapse. Seinfeld commented on the following post:

Here's what he said:

Seinfeld is, of course, referring to a moment from a week ago when Timmy Trumpet performed "Narcos" live at Citi Field as closer Edwin Diaz took the mound.

Since that game the Mets are 3-3 and have been caught by the Braves. Is Timmy Trumpet the reason? Seinfeld sure thinks so. MLB curses can pop up where you least expect them, so maybe he's right.
