The Mets are hitting .224 this month, down a whopping 50 points from what they hit in June.
How bad is a .224 batting average for a team? That’s what we’re here to tell you. We have the numbers for every month in Mets history, thanks to Stats LLC.
The good news is that the Mets have had 26 full calendar months in their 49-year history in which they’ve hit worse.
I love how Mark Simon manages to point out that things could be worse for the Mets at the same time he’s talking about Adam Wainwright having a chance to throw a no-hitter against them.
