Make it stop! Please!

The Mets finished a disastrous 13-game stretch against the Giants and Dodgers and fans were hoping a weekend set against the Washington Nationals — the team the Mets swept before going 2-11 against San Fran and LA — would give them a bounce-back opportunity.

Well, El Mago went yard in the fourth inning on Friday night.

And that was the extent of the Mets’ offense.

It’s pretty bad right now, folks. We can’t sugarcoat it much more. But a Saturday night at Citi Field is still an opportunity to get a win. So we’ll see what happens with Marcus Stroman on the bump tonight.
