Are The Mets A 100 Loss Team?
After tonight’s loss to the Astros, the New York Mets are now 1-8 at home in Citi Field. It is their worst home start in franchise history, surpassing the Original Mets who went 1-7 at the Polo Grounds during their 1962 expansion season before winning their next home game.
With their overall record now at 5-13, it is thier poorest start since going 3-15 in 1964.
Is a 100 loss season in their future this season?
The more you want to believe that the Mets are better than their record, the more you realize they are exactly what their record says they are.
The Mets could have won their game tonight, but instead they lost due to a chain reaction of one abysmal mental mistake followed by another.
The mistakes on the base-paths were too many and too embarrassing to mention.
This is simply a bad fundamental team.
They don’t know how to win anymore.
They all wait around waiting for the other guy to come through in the clutch.
They wait around waiting for something bad to happen, and it always does.
It’s sad to see that all the talk this spring about playing better fundamental baseball was all hot air.
