The Mets are Sinking as they Lose 8-7 to the Cardinals


These players are given multi-million-dollar contracts and just don't perform.  Carlos Carrasco received $14 Million this season and just sucked today.  He gave up 6 runs and was yanked after 3+ innings.  His ERA ballooned to 6.34 after 9 starts.  At one point the Mets were trailing 5-1 but were able to even the score at 7-7.  The bullpens for both teams prevented scoring for the next 3 innings, but in the top of the ninth Adam Ottavino gave up a home run to Nolan Arenado to win the game for the Cardinals. 

The Mets are now 33-38 and 12.5 games behind the division-leading Atlanta Braves.  They will have to get hot soon or else this season is gone. Pete Alonso returned from 10 days on the IL but was hitless in four at-bats.  Will the Mets be sellers at the trade deadline?  Who is to blame for the poor performance of the team?
