The Mets were the most polarized se tu in MLB history this year – literally.
Never has a team done as well as the Mets, so far, only to the extent that they have shaken. Writer Anthony Decomo from MLB.com’s Mets beats:
I’ve seen this statistic in several places today, and there’s no better combination of 2021 mats than this:
No team in the history of the Major League has spent more time (103 days) in the first place and has also broken the losing record. Mats are guaranteed to be mathematically first.

Although the Mets’ playoff chances were dashed long ago – they have no chance of finishing .500 or better – there was probably a silver lining to end the season. Right-handed pitcher Noah Cindergard returned to Oundy on Tuesday to face the Marlins, his first on the Mets’ active roster in nearly two years.
He only made one inning, but looked to top form, struck out two batters and dropped 10 pitches, including nine for the strike.

What was Noah Cindergard’s injury?
In May 2020, Cindergard, nicknamed Thor, Tommy John underwent surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament, one of his longest injuries. This kept him out for most of the 2020 and 2021 seasons, although he faced many dangers along the way.
Cindergard last played in the major leagues on September 2, 201, when he went seven innings, conceding three of five hits সময় nine strikeouts-in a 7-6 win over Atlanta. Curiously, that was the end of the Mets that season. Kindergarten played the entire season among the majors for the last time without spending any time on the injured list.
Once these setbacks began, doubts began to arise as to whether Cindergard would ever pitch for the Mets again, especially after a significant delay in his rehabilitation this summer. The 22-year-old right-hander has spent countless hours on the list of injured in his career, including time in the 2017-20-Day Injuries list, where he was torn from a floor until Sept. 2.
In 2018, he was twice on the list of injured: for the first time in more than a month, from the end of May to July 12, with torn ligaments on his fingers. The second was July 22 of that year; He missed 10 days due to hand, foot and mouth diseases.
