Meet the Mets
In what could’ve been his last start in a Mets uniform, Zack Wheeler looked dominant against the Marlins. The game remained scoreless until the pitcher himself broke the stalemate in the seventh. Unfortunately a blown strike three call led to two home runs the following inning, and Wheeler’s night only ended in frustration and not a glorious ride into the sunset. The Mets couldn’t recover and another home run given up by Edwin Diaz sealed their fate against the Fish.
One day after Jeff McNeil suffered a fracture after being hit by a pitch, Robinson Cano was also hit but he avoided the worst.
McNeil will undergo surgery soon but he already has set lofty goals for himself for next season.
Mickey Callaway might still believe his is the man for the job but it might be time for Brodie Van Wagenen to pick his own manager.
Dominic Smith was activated off the IL before the game and he hopes to be a key contributer to the Mets next season no matter what it takes.
The core of this team has the potential to be contenders but Brodie Van Wagenen will have to find the right pieces to get them over the hump.
The Mets’ starting pitching remained mostly in tact this season and yet it still wasn’t enough to save them.
After this season there is little doubt that the Polar Bear is one of the superstars of the league.
