I’m currently a sad Mets fan.

And I know you are too. Last nights game was depressing. We had so much hope. Noah Syndergaard pitched a phenomenal game. The game was tied at 0 going into the ninth inning. Our closer — the man with over 50 saves — was coming in. We got this. The Mets still had a great chance.

But then they didn’t.

With a three run homer hit by Conor Gillaspie in the top of the ninth inning, the Mets were done.

Mets fans started leaving the stadium, and I was just genuinely sad.

This was supposed to be our year. We had unfinished business to take care of. We had overcome so many injuries….to just lose in the Wild Card game? That doesn’t make sense.

How did this happen?

Yes, Madison Bumgarner is a phenomenal pitcher. But you know what? Noah Syndergaard was beyond phenomenal as well last night.

The Mets just didn’t score. We didn’t have any Asdrubal Cabrera bombs. Or Yoenis Cespedes bombs. Or any bombs for that matter.

The defense was there. The bats just didn’t show up.

It sucks. Losing sucks. There’s no denying that. This one is going to sting maybe (most likely) until next season.

Next: Thor deserved better last night

But you know what? Despite all the obstacles, the Mets made it to the Wild Card. Yes, I’m a really sad Mets fan right now. But I’m also a proud one. Maybe not proud of their performance last night — minus Syndergaard and Curtis Granderson‘s phenomenal catch — but I’m proud of what they overcame and accomplished this season.

No it didn’t end how we wanted it to end, but ya gotta believe.
