The New York Mets cannot wait for this disaster of a season to be over.
They entered the year expecting to be a playoff team at worst.
Instead, the Mets will not even win 80 games.
From 101 wins last year to less than 80 is a major drop-off.
But there have been a few players that have continued to produce despite the poor record.
One of those players is shortstop Francisco Lindor.
He is finishing up one of the best seasons of his career and might reach a career milestone.
According to Anthony DiComo, Lindor is only two home runs away from his first career 30-30 season.
Home run 28 for Francisco Lindor, as the Mets continue to spoil Miami's playoff chances.

With still five games to go, Lindor has a great shot at reaching 30-30.
Many people criticized Lindor for his struggles during his first year in New York.
But, the last two seasons have been very strong for him.
He is proving to be worth the massive contract that the Mets gave him.
Each season, Lindor has improved in home runs and continues to look more comfortable.
30-30 seasons are not something that come around very often.
But, the increase in stolen bases this year makes it more attainable.
So far this year only Ronald Acuna Jr. and Julio Rodriguez have reached that milestone.
Adding Lindor’s name to that star-studded group would be impressive.
It will be interesting to see what moves the Mets make this offseason.
Having a poor season like this is unacceptable in New York.
At least they can feel comfortable knowing they have their shortstop of the future in Lindor.NEXT: Mets Owner Shares Surprising Statement After Postponement
