Well, May isn’t shaping up too good for the Mets. And if this feels like deja pooh, well that would be correct. In 2018, the Mets went 10-18 in the merry month of May. The last time the Mets were above .500 in this month was 2012.
There’s no consensus on what you call the second decade of a century. Some call in the “tens,” while others call it “the teens.” And some stress not to use either of those terms. Whatever your preferred choice for the 2010-2019 time period we’re living in, the Mets have gone 119-149 for a .444 winning percentage.
That may not seem downright awful to you at first glance. This hasn’t exactly been a glorious decade for the Mets, after all. But what makes May so disappointing is that it comes after generally solid Aprils. This decade, the Mets are 131-111 (.541) in April. And that’s strictly April, as Baseball-Reference breaks down monthly records to include March.
