As you know the Mets brought in a well dressed new GM, who made some big splashy moves, announced a new culture and the media loved it. He invited the rest of the division to come and get us. Well it’s May 15th and the team is under .500 and there are 750+ games left on Robinson Cano’s contract.
Anyway you all told me I was negative, so I am gonna stay out here alone on Negative Island and you better not try and join me. You stay over there with the Brodie Fanboys and last year’s crew that anointed the manager Mickey Hodges in February.
Tonight, the All In Mets started Wilmer Font tonight. On purpose.
Wilmer Font (not good): 2.1 IP, 5 ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 2 K, 63 P
Patrick Corbin (much better): 8 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 11 K, 108 P
Robinson Cano, Pete Alonso, Michael Conforto, Amed Rosario & Wilson Ramos: combined 0-for-18 ABs
5-1 #Mets loss to Nationals

Robinson Cano hasn’t homered since April 21 — going on a month. Before that, April 6. Before that, Opening Day. https://t.co/G28e3Q18Vd

Robinson Cano is 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a soft groundout, and batting .196 in May. Cano has gone 68 consecutive plate appearances without a home run.
Nationals 5, Mets 1, mid-sixth.

Todd Frazier is now batting .148/.164/.259 with a 34.5% K rate in 55 plate appearances. Therefore in an event to get him going, Mickey Callaway will start him tomorrow & have him bat 5th in the getaway lineup.
