Rodent detectives of Queens, you may now stand down: the search for the Mets's rally rat (or raccoon, depending on your source) can officially end.

That's because there was no animal to begin with at the center of Francisco Lindor and Jeff McNeil's dugout confrontation on Friday—at least according to Mets general manager Zack Scott.

On Saturday, Scott refuted Lindor and McNeil's post-game comments that their discussion centered around whether or not the supposed animal in the tunnel was a rat or raccoon, according to Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News. Scott called the pair's decision to fabricate a story rather than speak the truth was "probably not ideal."
