The closest thing New York Mets fans are getting to watching them compete at Citi Field is watching All-Star Jeff McNeil control the team in MLB the Show 20. He has displayed his talent on the sticks, putting together a 15-6 record to make the postseason for the MLB the Show Players League.

It is no surprise McNeil has recorded the most hits with himself (23). His offense has been explosive as ten different Mets are hitting over .300. Michael Conforto has led the way with eight home runs while Pete Alonso and Jake Marisnick have four each.
McNeil has also taken advantage of the vast array of weapons the Mets have in their bullpen. Edwin Diaz and Seth Lugo have been his primary weapons in relief. They have combined for 11 shutout innings with five strikeouts. Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard have been dominant to start games as both have 3.00 ERAs.
McNeil is one win behind the best record in the NL, held by Dodgers prospect Gavin Lux. Heading into the last weekend before the postseason, McNeil is getting himself ready to make a magical playoff run and at least bring a championship of some sort back to Queens.
