Mets' Jenrry Mejia moonwalks off mound after strikeout (GIF)

Jenrry Mejia was bumped from the Mets starting rotation to the bullpen Monday after a string of bad starts.  But that demotion apparently didn't have anything to do with his dance moves.

The righthander played a crucial part in Monday night's Subway Series opener when Manager Terry Collins asked him to first keep the game close in the seventh and then protect a two-run lead in the eighth. 

Mejia's final pitch was an inning-ending called strike three to Brett Gardner, and he celebrated by moonwalking off the mound:


  1. that's not a moon-walk!!

  2. he's no michael jackson. its called backpedaling
