Mets to reportedly DFA reliever Jorge López after he called them 'worst team in probably the whole f***ing MLB'

Even by New York Mets standards, this year's team is hitting some significant lows. On Wednesday, those lows were most visible through Mets reliever Jorge López.

Or should we say former Mets reliever Jorge López?

Granted, it wasn't going great for the Mets when López entered the game. Adam Ottavino had just allowed an RBI single in the eighth inning to put the Los Angeles Dodgers up 5-3 in a game that was tied entering the frame. López took the ball and allowed a double to rookie Miguel Vargas, got Mookie Betts to fly out, then allowed an opposite-field, two-run homer to Shohei Ohtani, pushing Los Angeles' lead to 9-3.
