Home Sweet Home? Mets Have Second Most Home Losses In MLB
Blame it on Citi Field… Blame it on the bullpen… Blame it on the starting pitching… Blame it on the offense… Whatever you want to blame it on, the Mets won-loss record at home this season has been horrid.
At 31-44 in Citi Field, only the Houston Astros at 28-46 have lost more games in their homepark than the Amazins.
The Mets have just completed a 1-8 homestand including getting swept in four games by the Washington Nationals. That is the worst homestand for the Mets since Aug. 23-Sept. 2, 2004, when they were 1-10 (minimum six games) according to ESPN.
It’s also the first time the Nationals have swept the Mets since they were the Montreal Expos. The Mets have lost the season series to the Nationals, 10-8.
Yesterday, David Wright’s frustration with Citi Field reached new heights. After he flied out to deep left with the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Wright turned to the dugout and violently slammed his helmet to the ground in disgust. He then remained frozen on the field with his hands at his hips and a blank stare on his face. It was kind of bizarre to see Wright so upset and angry.
“Obviously, it’s frustrating,” Wright said. “I felt like I had a pretty good at-bat against a tough reliever.”
The Mets are sending out plenty of signals that there will be changes at Citi Field in 2012. Expect those fences to come in and those 16-foot walls to come down.
Earlier in the week, even the pitchers (R.A. Dickey and Bobby Parnell) acknowledged that something needed to be done.
