Whatever goodwill the Mets engendered with their brilliant first dozen games of the season has expired. In losing to the Rockies, 3-2, on Sunday, the Mets dropped their sixth straight game to cap a winless homestand. Since opening the year 11-1, they have gone 6-14, posting one of Major League Baseball’s five worst records over that stretch.
Culprits lurk in every corner of the clubhouse, but particularly up and down the lineup. Michael Conforto is in an 0-for-13 funk. Yoenis Cespedes departed Sunday’s game with a quad injury. His replacement, Brandon Nimmo, is 1-for-his-last-11. Jay Bruce hasn’t driven in a run since the calendar flipped to May. The Mets averaged 1.8 runs per game on their winless six-game homestand, leading for just two of the 54 innings they played.
