The New York Mets are off to a great start this season. Alex Torres’ odd-looking hat aside, the team is leading the National League East with a 15-7 record and is undefeated at home. All the while, Saturday Night Live alumni, Half Baked star and diehard Mets fan Jim Breuer has been posting reaction videos regularly to his Facebook page.

Some are from the stands:

Others are from his home in New Jersey:

MLB Central had Breuer on yesterday’s show, and they asked him about his feelings regarding the team’s current performance and past history:

Listen, Mets fans are like battered dogs. We got a nice home, and when the owner feeds us at night, we just take it in stride. We’re very excited, but I don’t see the Mets in the World Series.

The stand-up comedian is currently promoting his new comedy special Comic Frenzy, which premieres next month on EPIX. While discussing the new hour, Breuer and I talked about his love for the Mets, how the reaction videos first came about, and his future plans with the organization.

UPROXX: You’ve been uploading a lot of Mets recap videos onto Facebook. Are you a lifelong fan, or is this more recent?
