Metz suffered another fruitless season

NEW YORK — An hour after ending their 101-win season with a 6–0 loss to the Padres in a decisive Game 3 of the National League wild-card series, the Mets played pool. They drank Corona and Bud Heavy and as they signed jerseys for each other. Pending free agents teased each other about how much money they would make. First baseman Pete Alonso walked through the clubhouse in cowboy boots and a black leather jacket. “Dammit, Peter!” Francisco Lindor complimented him. Game 3 starter Chris Bassitt joked he would spend the rest of the night there. Game 2 starter Jacob deGrom, who has said he plans to opt out of his contract this winter, spoke with reliever David Peterson about deGrom’s poor texting etiquette. If there were tears, they were dry before media were allowed to enter.
