Will the Mets even come close to a playoff appearance? Could they finish under .500?
Overall, the Mets‘ 13-game stint against the Dodgers and Giants was… horrible.
The Amazins went 2-11 over a span that culminated with the Giants handing the Mets a three-game sweep at Citi Field. The Mets won one game in LA and San Francisco, but were swept at home by both teams. Go figure.
New York is now 7.5 games back in the National League East and must take advantage of this upcoming 14-game stint against the Nationals and Marlins.
It all starts Friday night when Washington comes to Queens.
