This season has been a disappointing one for the New York Mets so far.  They are a below .500 team so far and have been playing some bad baseball the last few weeks. Some of their players have been underperforming as well this year. Guys like Mark Canha, Eduardo Escobar and Starling Marte who were big for the Mets last year and helped them to a 101 win season and a playoff berth, have been pretty disappointing so far this year. The Mets pitching in general has been very bad this season and the offense is starting to pick it up, but the team just can't seem to win games. 

Out of all the Mets players right now, the most frustrating one besides Daniel Vogelbach would have to be Carlos Carrasco.

Mets starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco has been inconsistent during his time in New York

Carrasco is getting $14 million dollars this year and will be a free agent after this season. It will be interesting to see what the Mets will do with Carrasco. We will see if they get rid of him via trade or just let him finish out the season and let him walk during the offseason. The Mets have a lot of issues this season and pitching has been one of their biggest problems. With how Carrasco has been, he has been one of the more frustrating of the bunch to watch.

Compared to how Carlos Carrasco performed last year, this has been a very disappointing season for him so far. Carlos Carrasco last year had a record of 15-7 with a 3.97 ERA and 152 strikeouts in 152 innings. However, so far this year he has a record of 2-3 with a 6.34 ERA in 44 innings this season. His walks per 9 is up from 2.4 last year to 4.3. He has already given up 10 home runs this year compared to 17 last year and there is still about 90 games left to play. He just had a horrid start on Sunday against the Cardinals, only going 3 innings and giving up 5 hits, 3 walks and 6 runs with 5 being earned. He is one of the starting pitchers this year for the Mets that has just been frustrating to watch.

Carrasco has just not looked well this season outside of 2 starts. His stuff does not appear to be there and he isn't getting any younger as he is 36 years old. The Mets have to figure out what to do with their pitching staff, especially Carrasco. Maybe, when Jose Quintana comes back from injury, Carrasco will be the odd man out and be moved to the bullpen.
