Is failure coming? New York Mets are eliminated from the NL wild card

When the current MLB season started, one of the favorite teams not only to go to the postseason but to become champions of the World Series were the New York Mets, who with a new and filthy rich landlord in Steve Cohen, hiring Francisco Lindor and potentially one of the best rotations in all of Major League Baseball. However, with less than two weeks to go the campaign, perhaps one of the great failures of the year was consummated.

After the St. Louis Cardinals posted their thirteenth straight win, second place in the National League wild card is now mathematically unattainable for the New York Mets, meaning the team is officially eliminated from competing for the Wild Card. .

The Queens team can still choose to win the East Division of the National League, in which the Atlanta Braves lead by 7.5 games over the Metropolitans with 9 games left on the schedule, which means that to advance to the playoffs the Braves they have to lose 8 of their last 9 games and the Mets win all of them, plus the Phillies lose at least 6 of their last 9 games.

At 73-79, according to Baseball Reference the Mets have less than 0.1% chance of making the playoffs, which in a nutshell means they need a miracle and little else to get to October.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and am going for my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
