Mets broadcasters perfectly sum up team’s massive struggles during latest meltdown: ‘Good grief’

The New York Mets are in disarray right now, and as of Sunday they had the worst record in the MLB, going 9-22 in their last 31 games.

And once again, on Saturday afternoon, a late collapse cost the team its loss. The team’s play-by-play announcer perfectly summed up the feelings of Mets fans as they watched the San Francisco Giants win 7-2 in extra innings.

“It’s like the sky is falling,” Mets legend Keith Hernandez said on a PIX11 broadcast Saturday afternoon.

This came after longtime Mets play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen called Mike Yastrzemski’s bases-loaded triple in the top of the 10th inning a game-changing hit.

And the only reason the game went into extra innings was because Mets pitcher Edwin Diaz missed another save. Diaz has missed four saves in his past eight appearances for New York.

After Hernandez spoke, Cohen added, “That’s been the case almost every day for the last month.”

Hernandez responded: “Totally.”

Another Mets legend, Ron Darling, also couldn’t contain his thoughts about the team’s losing streak.

“The difference between losing and what’s going on here,” he said in the bottom of the 10th inning. “Those are two different things. This is really heartbreaking.”

The Mets have now lost five straight, including another disastrous loss on Friday night to the Giants, who rallied late to beat New York again. New York entered Sunday nine games below .500 (21-30) and in second-last place in the National League East.

New York is a talented team on paper and wasn’t expected to be all that competitive this season after a lackluster 2023 campaign, but this run of form has frustrated everyone who follows the Queens-based team.

But it’s still early in the season, and that’s the beauty of a 162-game season. There are still plenty of games left for the team to rebuild, and the Mets are hoping that happens sooner rather than later.

Before wrapping up Saturday’s broadcast, Cohen had a message for Mets fans to remember that there’s always another game on the schedule to keep things on the right track.

“Even if it’s hard to achieve, remember that the sun will rise tomorrow,” Cohen said.
