The New York Mets season has come and gone.
With their 6-0 loss to the San Diego Padres in Sunday’s Game 3 of the NL Wild Card Series, their best season since 2015 crumbled right before their eyes.
The Padres advanced to the NLDS and will take on the Los Angeles Dodgers starting tonight.
And thus, Mets fans were left with a familiar feeling of emptiness and disappointment.
Francisco Lindor certainly understands that disappointment.
But he also made it clear that he feels like the Mets have a bright future and took a huge step forward with their 101-win season.
His comments can be found in the tweet below.
I found this answer interesting from Francisco Lindor, when asked specifically about the concept of a lost sense of trust between the team and a fan base that has seen this movie a hundred times before: pic.twitter.com/gwziTQiwy4

Lindor Expresses Optimism For Future
Mets fans probably don’t want to hear this.
They’ve dealt with this disappointment before and have heard the same thing time and time again.
Lindor of course has only been with the Mets for two seasons.
But he felt the disappointment last year when they were in first place as late as August and fell out of contention, finishing the season 77-85.
This year, he finally got a taste of what it’s like to win with the Mets.
Still, it ended in bitter disappointment.
The good thing is, Lindor is optimistic about the future and so are the Mets.
While nothing is guaranteed, the Mets do appear to have a bright future and will have a chance to compete for a World Series title.
But it certainly doesn’t take the frustration away for the fans, who have been waiting since 1986 for the Mets to win it all.
The future may be bright, but the fans have experienced enough heartache already, and they are quite frankly tired of each season ending in disappointment.
