The Mets have a chance to play in October and have perhaps their best November ever. The Mets have made a strong push to reach the playoffs for the 10th time. In fact, they have received votes in all the categories in the same year eight times and on six occasions had top-10 finishes — five coming during the best run in franchise history 1984-88 and the other in 2016. The awards are announced in November, and with five weeks left to state their cases (only regular season results matter) Pete Alonso is no worse than a co-favorite for Rookie of the Year, and Jacob deGrom has a chance to do what even Tom Seaver could not — become the first Met to win any of the awards in consecutive years, as he is bunched in a tight Cy Young race.
