Tweetball

Hello, peeps.

So the Metsโ€™ season officially ended yesterday. SADNESS!

As Iโ€™ve mentioned, Twitter is basically my baseball info hub, and most of my liked Tweets are baseball-related (the rest are math/stats-related, walking-related, or PRIMO MEME CONTENT).

So as a little tribute to the end of the regular season, I present the Metsโ€™ 2019 season in Tweet form! Enjoy.

 

Bonus nonsense:

 

 

ALONSO SMASH!

Such a cool moment.

That is all.

Yo

Cespedes had a โ€œranch incidentโ€ and broke his ankle, โ€˜cause heโ€™s a Met and of course he did.

I shouldnโ€™t have laughed so hard at this, but I did.

ITโ€™S BASEBALL Oโ€™CLOCK

Itโ€™s Mets time, bitches! Hopefully theyโ€™ll win their first game. And, yโ€™know, a good amount of the rest of their games.

(Edit: haha, wow, they murdered the Braves.)

Also, shock of shocks: I dug out my old Unreal CD and stuck it in Big Compy just to see how badly it wouldnโ€™t work. But heyโ€ฆit actually worked! And it looks shockingly good for a game from 1998.

Awesome. I just wish The Neverhood worked on this computer, too.

The Mets, The Mets, The Mets are On Fire

Take a look at what the Mets are doing right now:

This is a graph of the Metsโ€™ probability of making it to the postseason. As you can see, the probability had been taking a dive for most of the season, bottoming out at 6.7% on August 19th. They basically had a very, very small chance of making it.

Less than a month later, that probability has shot up to 63%. Thatโ€™s pretty crazy. Theyโ€™re just out of the wildcard spot now. I think itโ€™s especially interesting when you consider that none of the other teams even remotely in contention have any huge upswings or downswings (except maybe the Cardinals).

(Sorry, I like graphs.)

(And now I can use the โ€œsportsโ€ category for the first time in like 4 years.)
