If Mets win it all, they should give a ring to the Nationals for letting them have this opportunity by underperforming so muchGdiguy said:
The Mets offense was atrocious for the first half.
I mentioned this yesterday, but the Mets for most of the year were running out multiple players with sub-700 OPSs (backup C with 200 PA's is ~.500, backup 3B is ~600)... Cespedes, Wright, D'Arnaud, Conforto, even Duda (so, 3-7 of the lineup) were out or not on the Mets for significant portions of the year. This is a totally different team than the one that couldn't score more than 3 runs in May-July.
Seeing that smarmy ballbag get bounced in four strait is the cherry on this Cubs shitshow sundae.

He'll just say it was good experience for the young guys on the team, they're ahead of schedule, and they just need a few more pieces
In other words spread the blame elsewhere
