Dan Plesac plays himself as Nats pull off 7-run rally

The Nats were 0-3 on the season against the Mets heading into this week's series.

After seven innings Monday, the Mets led 6-1, so it sure looked like they'd win their fourth game in four tries against the Nats.

Which is perhaps why former MLB pitcher, and current MLB Network talking head, Dan Plesac felt safe chirping on Twitter about how badly the Mets were owning the Nats in 2018.

Unfortunate for Plesac, he couldn't foresee a six-run rally by the Nats in the top of the eighth, or the Nats tacking on an insurance run in the ninth, to escape with an 8-6 victory. Or, another way of phrasing it, a complete meldown by the paternal Mets.

Congrats, Dan. You played yourself.
