A friend of mine recently visited Japan, and he noticed this vending machine. He's not a baseball fan, but he knows I love the Mets so he took this photo for me -




I wonder whether Mets has a special meaning in Japanese?

(Thanks to lubitul for resizing the image for me.)

That was Piazza's last at-bat.

Now it's Mets soda.

I'm tired. I goofed.

It's fixed now.

Except for the M (and the color) that does look like our team's script.

Translation

In Japanese, "Mets" means "ones who play meaningful games in the early portion of September."
