So the Mets’ season officially ended yesterday. SADNESS!
As I’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 Mets’ 2019 season in Tweet form! Enjoy.
Such a cool moment.
That is all.
Cespedes had a “ranch incident” and broke his ankle, ‘cause he’s a Met and of course he did.
I shouldn’t have laughed so hard at this, but I did.
It’s Mets time, bitches! Hopefully they’ll win their first game. And, y’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 wouldn’t work. But hey…it actually worked! And it looks shockingly good for a game from 1998.
Awesome. I just wish The Neverhood worked on this computer, too.
Take a look at what the Mets are doing right now:
This is a graph of the Mets’ 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%. That’s pretty crazy. They’re just out of the wildcard spot now. I think it’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 “sports” category for the first time in like 4 years.)
