In the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, Mets fans expressed one of their lowest levels of confidence in the team this season. In this survey, 78 percent of Mets fans said they were confident in the team, which might be a bit higher than you’d expect given how poorly the Mets have played lately.
With Francisco Lindor and Jacob deGrom still on the injured list, the Mets will need some other players to step up to help turn things around. Having held a lead in the National League East for months, the team is just a half-game ahead of the Phillies heading into a three-game series against them this weekend.
Speaking of other players, fans across baseball were asked about the most impactful trade made at the deadline. Just 2% of fans replied that it was the Mets’ trade for Javier Báez. The Dodgers’ trade for Max Scherzer and Trea Turner understandably won in a landslide, while the acquisitions of Kris Bryant, Craig Kimbrel, and Anthony Rizzo by the Giants, White Sox, and Yankees, respectively, finished in the next three slots.
