It sure has been ugly. But the optimist in me says it ain't over til they are mathematically eliminated, which they aren't.... yet. Any of the other teams can implode too, even though it isn't likely. I still have tix for a bunch of games in September, so I hope they at least make it interesting.

Janet, they can be spoilers so that is a reason to go.5 games back in the second wild card? A very long shot at best.By not winning the division you put yourself in bad situations like this one.

Man I thought this team would do better with some of their moves at the trade deadline. Especially since they held onto Synderguard

I think the bullpen is what really hurt us this season.Diaz and Familia were both failures.Cost a lot of games.Also spotty hittng.

Well, 2 out of 3 in Philly, I'll take it. But Mickey blew it again with leaving pitchers in too long. Familia has to go, or limit him to teams worse than us. He can't pitch against the good teams. I still have tix for 6 more games, hoping they win when I go, or at least make it interesting!

Still 4 away for that second wild card so still alive.Agree with Familia, he has lost it completely.Diaz is not reliable as well.Calloway would have more leeway if the lineup put up 6 or 7 runs a game like good hitting teams do.Now is the time for a 13 out of 15 hot streak like the Nats are doing.

Great job Calloway, you blow a 10-4 ballgame in the ninth.Lugo had a lights out 8th and was fully rested.Diaz the Disaster blows another save.

As somebody who likes to use math/statistics in both baseball and weather, when it comes to crazy events, it needs to be understood that they don't just happen, there are many factors that lead them to happen. In weather, a Rodzilla snowstorm along I-95 doesn't just happen, it comes together because of a combination of many factors, the most common of which is -NAO, -AO, +PNA, -EPO, Phase 8/1/2/3 MJO, and warmer water temperatures over the central equatorial Pacific than over the eastern equatorial Pacific near Ecuador/Peru. 1/23/16, aka "Jonas" is the classic example, with NYC getting 27.5" of snow.

Now, let's talk Mets baseball. We have seen many times this year the Mets have what should be a comfortable late game lead turn into a nailbiter. 3/30/19, the second game of the year when the Mets played the Nats in DC, the Mets rallied in the top half of the 9th inning for a seven run lead going into the bottom of the 9th only for it to become a save situation and get hold down narrowly. Four days later in Miami on 4/3, the Mets had a seemingly comfortable 9th inning lead of 6-0.....of for the Marlins to not only get the tying run to the plate, but also have the batter representing the tying run hit the ball deep into the outfield only to be caught because of how deep the dimensions of Marlins park are. In some ballparks, that ball would be over the fence and would tie the game. Now, I can go on and on about those types of games the last five months but I'm not sure what the character limit is per post on this forum (okay, likely unlimited but you know where I'm going).

So let's flash forward to yesterday, the Labor Day afternoon game, when the Mets had a 7-0 lead going into the bottom of the 9th. Well, the Nats got closer and made it 7-3 thanks to the 3-run home run by Asdrubal Cabrera (another former Met who kills the Mets), and they went to Edwin Diaz (who has struggled mightily this year) and was able to get the third out. Once again, the Mets were very fortunate they held on.

So now let's get to tonight. The Mets offense rallies big in the top of the 9th and has, once again, what is theoretically a comfortable 6-run 10-4 lead. But knowing this team, I was not ready to be excited. When the middle of the 9th occurred, I PM'ed someone I know who is also a Mets fan and said "The bullpen needs to hold on to this lead. Whether or not the Nats see Diaz remains to be seen." And that's exactly what happened. And this time, the big lead, which got bent, got broken as Diaz gives up the walk-off 3-run home run.

Of course, the guy I PM'ed is blaming me for the Mets loss. But in fact, I was giving the analytics on how bad the Mets bullpen has been and that it was a serious disaster waiting to happen. And tonight, that disaster happened. Am I upset? I would by lying if I was saying no. But am I surprised? Not in the slightest. While the Mets went on a nice run against bad teams mid-July through early-August, the terrible bullpen was something that could not be ignored. And that is likely the final nail in the coffin to the 2019 Mets season.

Math 23x7, send this excellent post to Calloway.Knowing all this, all he had to do for the best shot of winning was leave Lugo in who had a lights out 8th inning.Calloway and Diaz have sunk the Mets chances this year.
