The New York Mets started the season with high hopes, a renewed rotation and an impressive offensive core, with youth and experience. However, that and the fact that MLB expanded playoff teams for the 2020 season, wasn’t enough, and their year will end today with bitter disappointment.
They entered Saturday’s action with a slight chance to pull off the miracle, but they lost both games of the doubleheader to the Washington Nationals. And, to make matters worse, the Mets can finish in the last place of the division if they lose today.
New York Mets’ ace Jacob deGrom expressed his frustration for the team not being able to deliver on the preseason hype.
