The Mets' 2020 season officially came to an end on Sunday afternoon after a 15-5 loss to the Washington Nationals. They finished the year with a 26-34 record, and missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
The team would have made the playoffs if they won their final three games of the season, since both the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants lost their final three games of the season as well.
Manager Luis Rojas spoke about the season and why it was a frustrating end to the year.
"We didn't get it done," Rojas said. "We needed to do it, and we didn't do it. It was definitely all on us. It makes it a little bit more frustrating just seeing that part happened the way we wanted, but we didn't execute what we needed to do."
Rojas said the players were emotional in the locker room after the game, and thanked him for opportunities this season.
"Everyone's a little emotional in there," Rojas said. "They're talking about the outcomes of the games, that would've impacted what we would've done here. They're emotional about saying goodbye to each other.
"This is a good group, they got along great. Me as a manager couldn't ask for a better group. They're thanking me for opportunities... But I definitely appreciate the group, it's such a great group, I couldn't be more grateful for them."
