A Beautiful Thing: Amid More Boos, Chase Utley Ties Willie Mays in Dominance of Mets

Nothing to see here, folks, just Chase Utley killing the Mets some more.

Seriously, will "The Man" beating up on this team ever get old? Even watching him do it in a different jersey is a treat.

Mets fans never liked Utley when he wore Phillies red. The hatred went to a whole new level when Utley broke Ruben Tejada's leg with a hard slide during the 2015 NLDS between the Dodgers and Mets. Utley was booed viciously when the series shifted to New York.

Ever since, Mets fans have booed Utley. And ever since, No. 26 has only continued to make life miserable on those New Yorkers and their baseball team ... like this.

He pestered them some more on Friday night, hitting an upper-deck shot to "Utley's Corner" in Citi Field.

Watch here with a GIF and a link to the full video:

In 55 career games at the ballpark, Utley has 14 bombs. And get this: Utley is now tied for eighth all-time in home runs against the Mets … with Willie Mays.

So, please, Mets fans, keep booing Utley.
