What choice will the New York Mets, who have spent over $340 million, but are not even at the top of the globe and with a 50% win rate?메이저놀이터
The New York Mets are still in 4th place in the National League with a 33-38 win rate of 0.465 until the 19th (hereinafter referred to as Korean time). The gap with the district leader Atlanta Braves is 12.5 games.
This is considered one of the best surprises of the season. Initially, the New York Mets were evaluated as having the upper hand in the competition for the lead in the district against Atlanta.
The gap between the two teams would not be large, but the prospect that the New York Mets would win in the end prevailed. But now, towards the end of June, the result is the opposite.
While Atlanta ranks first in the National League with a 46-26 win rate of 0.639 through the 19th, it is becoming difficult for the New York Mets to expect to advance into the postseason.
A bigger problem is that, except for season-out closer Edwin Diaz, there is no escape history. Pete Alonso (29), who was recently injured, also returned.
However, the New York Mets currently rank 18th in team runs and 26th in team ERA. Not all good form in Tuta. With a -21 margin, he’s not out of luck either.

It is closer to the Washington Nationals, a tanking team, than to the top of the planet. It is possible to compete for the postseason only if you go to the American League Central District, which is currently the weakest district.
The New York Mets’ team payroll this season is over $340 million. The gap with the second place New York Yankees is 64 million dollars. That’s more than the Oakland Athletics’ payroll.
But the New York Mets will never be sellers. New York Mets owner Steve Cohen will make a major player upgrade this winter.
The size of the luxury tax has already become unimportant for the New York Mets. This winter, Shohei Ohtani (29) is expected to appear in the free agency (FA) market.
As a result, the New York Mets may offer Ohtani a contract of a scale that is difficult to refuse. Ohtani says he prefers Western teams, but the New York Mets are a team that can compete with money.
Attention is focusing on this season and the upcoming winter 2023-24 of the New York Mets, who spend a whopping $340 million and still have a win rate of less than 50%.
