Despite having MLB’s top payroll this season at over $307 million, the New York Mets currently have a dreadful 22-33 record, third-worst in the National League.

The Mets’ struggles were on full display against the Los Angeles Dodgers this week, as the Dodgers completed a three-game sweep at Citi Field.

Wednesday seemed to represent a boiling point for the team, as postgame media availability was postponed while the Mets held a meeting in their clubhouse.

“Our normal protocol is to speak with Carlos Mendoza and then enter the clubhouse immediately. Not today. We’ve been waiting outside for about ten minutes now, as the Mets appear to be holding a team meeting after another disheartening loss,” SNY’s Steve Gelbs shared on X shortly after the 10-3 loss.

Shortly after, the clubhouse opened to the media and outfielder Brandon Nimmo took the time to discuss some of the team’s issues.

“It’s no secret that things aren’t going the way we want around here. We opened the floor and talked about ways we could turn it around, ways that we can still have a good process moving forward, and ways that we can stay positive through this tough time. It’s no secret we aren’t playing the way that we know that we’re capable of, we’re not winning games, it’s a tough time that we’re going through,” Nimmo said.

The Mets will have to figure it out in a hurry. They’re already a whopping 16 games out of first place in the NL East, and trail an NL Wild Card spot by six games.
