Goodbye Milwaukee. See you never again. The New York Mets just suffered through the Whooping in Wisconsin and even their attempts to send Tylor Megill home early didn’t work for them.
Megill is scheduled to start for the Mets on Thursday (now pushed to Friday) on what would normally be a festive day. After three straight losses, all of which were terrible in their own way, Megill and his teammates will need to mentally prepare for the potential home opening onslaught of boos if things don’t go the Mets’ way.
It rained on the Mets plenty this week even with a dome in Milwaukee
Under whatever name it has been called, Miller Park or now American Family Field, the stadium in Milwaukee has been unkind to the Mets.
As one Twitter user pointed out, there should be a name for this losing:
The Brewers haven’t had much success in the playoffs during this time period aside from 2018 when they went to Game 7 of the NLCS. How many of us non-Brewers fans even remember this achievement?
They lost in the Wild Card rounds in 2019 and 2020. In 2021, they fell in the NLDS. Of course, the Mets didn’t make the postseason in any of those years so how many of us were really checked in 100% during the success the Brewers experienced?
It hasn’t seemed like the Brewers have been so dominant against the Mets, especially when we consider how New York clinched its playoff berth last year in Milwaukee. Something about this city has it out for them, though.
Luckily, this is it for the Mets in Milwaukee. The annual trip is over unless the two end up in the postseason against each other. There is a good chance of this as both seem like top contenders for the playoffs even if this series has one fanbase feeling really good and the other not so much.
Back at it again on Friday after a breather. Let’s hope for a smooth flight. Leave all of the turbulence on the field.
