The New York Mets only have a one-game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the NL Central, but their manager is already planning his celebration.

Mets manager Buck Showalter, who's in his first season with the team, has promised to "do something stupid" if New York wins the division.

New York Mets News

With 13 games remaining on their schedule, the Mets still have a ways to go. Their race with the Braves could go down to the final day of the regular season, so New York fans may have to wait a while to see exactly how Showalter will react.

Even though Showalter is 66 years old and is in his 21st season managing, it's great to see that he's fired up about his team potentially winning its first division title since 2015. Despite their slim lead, the Mets are currently -230 favorites to win the NL East on FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds.

Perhaps better than anyone, fans of the franchise know how quickly things can fall apart, as they've witnessed their fair share of late-season collapses in recent years. Mets fans probably aren't ready to pop champagne just yet, so hopefully Showalter's comments don't backfire and jinx the team.
