August has been a rough month for the Mets, going 6-18 (.250 win percentage).
That is on pace to match the worst win percentage in a calendar month by a team to lead its division at the beginning of the month in the Divisional Era (min. 10 games).
The #Mets knew they were running into a gauntlet, but it turned into a living nightmare, going 2-11 vs. the #SFGiants and #Dodgers. They grounded into eight double plays and left 25 runners on base in their final three-game series vs. the Giants.
Big Inning early tonight at 8pmEt!
Let’s debate: who are the top three rookies in baseball right now? ⚾️
I’ll start. @Reds Jonathan India, @astros Luis Garcia & @RaysBaseball Randy Arozarena. 🔥🔥🔥
Mets entered August with 4-game lead. They're now 6 out. Which is stunning in theory but not in reality for a team that really hasn't hit all year and played its best baseball when Bench Mob was filling in for regulars.
What Manny Machado did in the third inning was virtually impossible.
He hit a home run with a 15-degree launch angle, the lowest launch of any (non-inside-the-park) home run this season and the hardest-hit homer (119.6 mph) in the majors this season.

Bob Costas tosses it to me in the studio, "...here's an update from Alexa." That sets off @19fredlynn's Alexa device at home, and he texts Bob to let him know. Bob tells the story on the air.
And now I need to change my name. Sorry Fred! 😆
