Although he expressed his willingness to challenge the presidency with a large investment in the Stove League, it is impossible to guarantee advancement to the postseason.토토사이트
The New York Mets lost 1-5 in an away game against the 2023 Major League Philadelphia Phillies held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on the 24th (Korean time). The season record of the Mets, who fell into the mire of three consecutive losses, was 34 wins and 41 losses. With a win rate of 0.453, it fell to fourth place in the National League West Division.
Starting pitcher Senga Kodai allowed 4 runs (2 earned runs) on 5 hits in 5⅓ innings, walking 3 and striking out 6, but became a losing pitcher in the silence of the other line. On this day, the Mets batting line only took three hits from the Philadelphia pitching staff.
It is the Mets that are getting pushed out of the ranking competition. It is 14 games behind the Atlanta Braves (48-27, 0.640 odds), the sole leader of the National League West Division, and 8 games behind the second-place Miami Marlins (43-34, 0.558 odds), and 3rd place Philadelphia (39-36, 0.520 odds). 5 games behind.
The American media’New York Post’ pointed out the sluggishness of the Mets on the day, saying, “The Mets are more likely to be caught by the Washington Nationals than the division 1, Atlanta.” Washington has a 28-47 win rate of 0.373, which is the lowest in the National League West Division.
The media said, “Senga’s pitching, which came to the mound after a 5-day break, was ineffective, and he could not overcome the mistakes of his teammates. In the meantime, the Mets fell into a 3-game losing streak, and they are 7 more games behind in the 50% win rate.” I predicted that
Mets manager Buck Showalter also regretted the current team situation. “The players made more mistakes under pressure,” he said. “I’m worried that I only got three hits. I’m worried about everything. But I’m still trying to play perfectly every game.”
Last winter, the Mets poured an astronomical amount of money into recruiting players. Edwin Diaz, an internal free agent, signed new contracts with Brandon Nemo for 5 years and $162 million, Justin Verlander for 2 years and $86.66 million, and Jose Quintana for 2 years and $26 million, Senga. He signed a 5-year, $75 million contract with Kodai and worked hard to reinforce his power.
However, the return on investment seems to be declining. Diaz and Quintana are out with injuries, and Verlander is also not living up to expectations with a 4.50 ERA in 9 games, 2 wins and 4 losses. Nemo also has a batting average of 0.278 (79 hits and 8 home runs in 284 at-bats) in 73 games, and Senga is recording an average ERA of 3.52 with 6 wins and 5 losses in 14 games. It’s a report card that fell short of the Mets’ expectations.
The Mets ambitiously challenged for the presidency. However, the reality is that you have to worry about dropping out of the postseason. With more than half of the season left, there is plenty of potential for a turnaround. It remains to be seen whether the Mets can rise again.
