So, June of 2018, if you remember was pretty awful.
Well , June of 2019 was freaking torture. Let’s get right into July.
In June, Jacob deGrom became the first pitcher in franchise history to strikeout at least 50 hitters and walk less than 5 hitters in a single month.

Per Elias, Jeff McNeil is the first player to lead the major leagues in batting average in July or later in his rookie or sophomore season since Ichiro Suzuki led through July 25, 2002, his second season. #Mets

The fireworks for the St. Lucie Mets did not go well tonight at First Data Field. They set a fire outside the stadium.

Mets should’ve thrown Seinfeld and 50 Cent out there to pitch. They’d have done a better job than Diaz and Familia.

Recap the last 2 weeks:
Mickey Callaway called a reporter a mother fucker
Jason Vargas tired fighting the reporter
Mets said 2 players from 1969 were dead when they aren’t
Brodie threw a chair during a meeting
40% of the rotation doesn’t want their $20 M catcher catching for them

If Pete Alonso standing out despite horrible pitching isn’t a metaphor for the 2019 Mets, idk what is #HRDerby

Here's some piping hot truth for all you Conforto-slandering hoes.
Conforto is already 25th all time on the Mets WAR list. If he finishes the year at a modest 4 WAR, he will be 20th on the list, ahead of Murphy, Backman, Carter, Ventura, Cespedes, Kent, etc.

Brodie told Mike that they are focused on player development. That's what bad teams focus on. Meanwhile, in the minors, Syracuse is under .500, Binghamton is under .500, St Lucie was under .500 for the 1st half & Columbia was the worst team in their league. This org is f'ed… https://t.co/HntvFtzl46

The Mets are paying Travis d'Arnaud $3.52M to hit 3 run homers off closers on my fantasy team.
End this fucking nightmare. https://t.co/BCigpWpx3v

Somehow the Mets bullpen threw 5 scoreless innings and Diaz got the save in a 3-2 win over the Twins #LGM

For a dude who believes he's in a "rivalry," he didnt seem to want that heat today. Two walks on Pete today. https://t.co/0aivQOs53h

Mets have made it very clear they’re not rebuilding at all. So I have to ask: what’s the plan? Can someone give me a clear (and relatively realistic) outline of how to make this team a contender?

Luis Avilán hasn't allowed a run in seven appearances (4.2 innings) since his return from the IL on July 2, and Seth Lugo's put up 9.2 scoreless innings with 13 strikeouts over his last nine games.. #LGM

No offense, but following you on Twitter is a true exercise in futility and a capacity to endure. That said, the self-aggrandizing way in which you report these nonsensical rumors, is truly epic and I am in complete awe of you. 🤔🙄

This means 2 things, 1) they cannot trade Noah Syndergaard. It’s asinine to replace him with Stroman minus 2 of their top prospects. 2) they’re officially in for 2020, meaning 3) payroll unquestionably has to rise in 2020, possibly breaching the luxury tax threshold. #Mets

Austin Bossart played at Penn, same as Bradley Wilpon, Jeff’s son. So Mets may have had some inside info on him.
