Yoenis Cespedes Done for Season

And then there were none. Yoenis Cespedes is done for the year with a right hamstring strain, meaning basically no one is left on the team.

Cespedes played exactly half the season — 81 games. He hit 17 home runs with 42 RBIs and a .292 batting average. Extrapolated over a full year, those would be pretty good numbers. Still, this goes down an extremely disappointing season for Cespedes. He was supposed to carry the team on his back. Instead, his legs gave out.

So with everyone traded away and Cespedes and Michael Conforto out, the Mets will play out the string with a weak team, at best. With a 57-73 record, the Mets will be lucky to avoid losing 90 games. That would be an embarrassment for a team that was hoping to play deep into October.
