With about 20 games left in the 2022 regular season, the New York Mets — seeking their first postseason berth in about half a decade — currently hold a razor-thin half-game lead over the defending World Series champion Braves. That lead would’ve remained 1.5-games, however, the Mets failed to beat the struggling Chicago Cubs at home on Tuesday night despite the fact that they have Jacob deGrom on the hill.

Speaking to reporters following the game, deGrom — who, in an uncharacteristically average outing, gave up four hits, three runs, and one home run in six innings pitched — took the blame for the loss and put the result squarely on his own shoulders.

“Just didn’t make some pitches when I needed to — they were in the fourth,” deGrom said when asked about his take on his performance. “Got a couple of guys on and wasn’t able to execute when I needed to. Tonight’s on me. I needed to go out there and put up 0s, and just wasn’t able to do it.”

New York Mets fans are disgusted watching Jacob deGrom take the blame for a loss in which the offense scored just one run

Needless to say, given that deGrom — one of the best pitchers in the history of the sport — has been one of the franchise’s lost bright spots in recent years, Mets fans were absolutely not having the Cy Young winner’s attempt to take the brunt of the blame for the Mets floundering offense.

After wrapping up their series with the Cubs on Wednesday night, the Mets will then host the Pirates in Queens over the weekend before heading to Milwaukee on Monday night.
