Chris Rock is a big Mets fan. And like other ecstatic Metsies, the stand-up comic exclaimed his new found love for slugger Yoenis Cespedes with a humorous tweet.
And everyone in the virtual comedy club was chuckling — all except probably Darryl Strawberry.
After the the first-place Mets' sweep of the Washington Nationals this week, Rock celebrated Citi Field's biggest acquisition this season on Twitter:
"Go mets Cespedes best MET in 20 years he's like Strawberry without the crack."

Comparing Cespedes' style of baseball to a young Strawberry is not a stretch even if some might think his comedy stylings are way off base.
