It’s no secret that the New York Mets have been one of baseball’s best teams to start the 2022 season.
They still hold the best record in the National League at 23-13 and lead the NL East by 5.5 games over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Mets had won or split each series of the season, up until this weekend against the Seattle Mariners.
With yesterday’s 8-7 loss, the Mets finally lost their first series of the season.
It had been an impressive streak, but it’s finally over as the Mariners grabbed two out of three at Citi Field over the weekend, as the Mets have finally come back down to earth a little.

All Good Things Must Come To An End
It had to end sometime, but if you’re the Mets, it sucks when it finally ends.
This is still a great team, to be fair.
It wasn’t realistic to expect them to win every series of the season.
That just doesn’t happen in baseball.
There are too many ebbs and flows to this game for that to ever happen.
It happens even to the best teams in the league.
That’s just the way things are.
Still, if you’re a fan, you’re probably disappointed that the streak is over.
It’s always fun to see your team go on a streak like that.
The Mets had beaten some good teams too, such as the San Francisco Giants.
It was promising, to say the least for the Mets and their fans.
And the team is still on a good path.
But all good things must come to an end, and yesterday, that good thing that came to an end happened to be the Mets’ streak of winning series.
