This is not bad luck. This is organizational. This is the Wilpons fault.

All spring, the Mets declined to use Dominic Smith in left field, even after Smith came to them asking for reps at that position. They said no.

Flash forward four months, and Smith is their regular left fielder. It's an unfair ask to expect him to be perfect.


THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO RUN A TEAM.

no team on earth, past, present, or future ever has been or will be this embarrassing, or this badly run.

Take solace, literally everyone.

The Orioles have lost the worst record honors to the Tigers.

A 7-32 record since the start of June will do that.

It has not been fun since the All-Star break, but at least we got a win.

3/4 games in the series the mets lose via walkoff.

only the mets.

this is a team that was claiming "win now" in the offseason. theres about 6 teams ahead of them that were not trying to win in the NL, based on the offseason.

Let's make it even more gross.

The Giants beat the Mets 3/4 games, with all wins coming in extra inning games.

The Mets outscored the Giants 15 runs to 11. 😮

Aww yeah back to .500 again.

The Brewers inability/refusal to spend money on pitching has officially derailed this season now that Woodruff is out for a month.

The worst part of everything is the Mets are f***ed and have no path to contention the next 3 years because of all the backloaded contracts they have. LIke what's the f***ing point of backloading all your contracts if , when you're in the light portion of thecontract, you're not going to f***ing spend to try to build a winning team? And also taking on Cano's hole contract for no reason on top of it? It's like the f***ing team is run by monkeys. Backloading everything + trading for Cano is going to f*** them for a long time. There is no room to add any $ next year, because payroll is going ot be way higher before they even add any FAs, and barely any is coming off the books.

They refused to spend any additional money this year and didn't increase payroll at all in a "light-loaded" contract year, so why would they next year when everyone's salary goes way up?

This is so f***ing unacceptable when your team has had 2 winning seasons in 11 years.

This is with them having a JD Martinez (alonso) and Jose Altuve (Jeff McNeil) for essentially 'free' mind you. They have that and it's so sad they have no absolutely no path to contention, no chance of success at all over the next 2-3 years because of how f***ing incompetently they made these current contracts, the trade for Cano, and their refusal to add $ to the team when they were NOT all backloaded contracts at one time.

Mind you they are going to need to add TWO starting pitchers and a s*** ton of relievers. How are they going to do this? They can't. and as such they won't be contenders for a long time. At least 3 more years of failure. When they've had TWO in the last 11. f*** the wilpons.

this is what i mean when i say the mets have it s*** because they constantly have no hope for the future
every year, theres no path to contention. Because of how they do contracts, and their terrible signings and trades that are only made to "look good". That's the only reason they traded for Cano. So it would "make a splash" and "look good" and "make the back pages"

And when they finally get a light year, they dont take advantage of it and just sit on their hands while the team suffers

Here's the gut punch for the 2020 Mets. deGrom, Lowrie and Familia are making a combined $24.6M this year (come get us). The same trio makes $48.6M next year.

This team has no path to contention in 2020. None. Zero. Owners and Brodie nuked this organization in one month.
