The 2017 season for the New York Mets has been the low point for the franchise in a long time (and that’s saying something). The Mets were beaten on Thursday by the Braves to fall to 7.5 games behind the Nationals, who they take on this weekend, in the NL East. The Mets have lost 10 of their last 11 and, in typical Mets fashion, certain circumstances cause frustrations with this team. Not mentioning this team cannot hit and has no heart, the amount of injuries on the roster is absurd.
Yesterday sums up the Mets franchise in my lifetime. Noah Syndergaard’s start was pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday. No big deal, but Gsellman gets lit up on Wednesday. Now, on Thursday, Matt Harvey shows up the ballpark thinking he isn’t pitching, now has to start because Noah Syndergaard got pushed back AGAIN. And Harvey gets lit up. Then, naturally, Yoenis Cespedes had to be helped off the field after re-aggravating his hamstring injury after trying to rush back. So not only does this team stink right now, they are going to be without their two best players for an extended period of time. How the Mets have not fired their training staff after 10 years of constant injuries and poor decisions on the health of their franchise players in mindblowing.
This team is in need of a dire shake up. The team has no fight, no heart. Whether there is a firing or bringing up top prospects Amed Rosario and Dom Smith, something has to be done immediately. The way the Mets have been playing they will get swept by the Nationals and be over TEN games back. You can kiss the division title goodbye because no way the Mets catch this good of a Nationals team.
No links or sources for this one. Just my frustrations and anger with this pathetic franchise.
