The Mets were looking for big seasons from Jacob deGrom, Francisco Lindor, Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto. Instead they got...pieces of them. DeGrom was incredible, but only for 15 games. Lindor left with a 3.2 WAR, but only a .230 average. Nimmo missed a third of the season. Conforto slowed to a halt. And the Mets had to keep soldiering on before ducking out of first and letting the Phillies, and eventually the Braves, take the East. I hate that it keeps happening...but ya gotta admit it's a little funny.
