The 60 game season didn’t go as planned; the Mets saw their best hitter end his season yesterday and a 26-31 fourth place finish for this team is a desperate cry for help once again.
Michael Conforto ended his season yesterday after having a complete monster of a year; a hamstring injury was the cause.
The bright spots on this team remained Jacob DeGrom, Dominic Smith, Conforto, Jeff McNeil Andreś Giménez, and even the sophomore Pete Alonso despite some regression.
Closer Edwin Diaz had somewhat of a better year as well.
Rookie David Peterson did well too.
The strugglers remained Steven Matz, Rick Porcello, and Michael Wacha.
The new ownership will be in effect next year, so it’s safe to say GM Brodie VanWagenen’s job is in jeopardy as Steve Cohen is expected to “Clean House” and fire and hire.
Things were disappointing to say the least.
