Reporter Jinxes Mets Balkless Season

So close!

In a crazy turn of events, a Mets beat writer managed to jinx what would have been an incredible accomplishment. The Mets were on the verge of being the first National League team to finish the year without a single balk in the last 15 years. But as soon as Anthony DiComo tweeted about it, Dillon Gee was called for a balk.

As far as we know, the Mets did not give DiComo a million dollars.
