On their first day as Mets, Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz were already put to work ... as elves
The first day of a job is always stressful. There's paperwork to fill out, people to meet and office kitchens to find. The one positive is usually you don't have to do much and you can leave early. That wasn't the case for Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz. After being formally introduced as New York Mets, the duo donned their new unis and headed for the team's annual holiday party to appear as elves:

And who was Santa in his blue suit sitting upon a throne of lies? None other than the owner of the best smile on the Mets, Brandon Nimmo:

While there has been some rumors of a Mets Santa curse, Nimmo isn't worried at all:

Considering that Nimmo was Santa last year and went on to post the highest OPS on the Mets, it's fair to say he's Santa curse-proof.
