"Bend the knee" is a reference to HBO's Game of Thrones, where seemingly superior characters ask others to make the gesture as a show of respect and loyalty.
The Mets' Twitter account didn't respond.
The Yankees (65-55) are currently holding the first Wild Card in the A.L.
The Mets (53-66) are in fourth place in the N.L. East, having recently sold off many of their pending free agents after the majority of their starting rotation and other key players were ravaged by injury.
