The Mets opened up the season as the hottest team in baseball, winning 11 of their first 12 games to take an early lead in the NL East.
But since then the team has been one of the worst in baseball—going 15-25.
And, after yesterday, to even call them a dumpster fire is an understatement.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, the Mets actually won a game yesterday when they beat the Braves by a score of 4-1.
It’s just that “dumpster fire” an understatement because yesterday, before the game, the stadium actually caught fire.
And this wasn’t some smoldering cigarette, it was a genuine blaze that required the FDNY to be called out.
Thankfully, the fire was put out in around 15 minutes or so, due to the work of the firefighters, and it appears nobody was hurt.
Yeah, I can see them putting it out quickly.
I mean, even with the win last night, the Mets have won just three of their last ten and haven’t won consecutive games in almost two weeks.
Because even when the Mets do catch fire, it doesn’t last very long.
