How can this get more pathetic? The two worst teams in their division are fighting for second to last place.

The New York Mets and the Miami Marlins are the two worst teams in their division.  They are both desperately fighting for fourth place and nothing more.  Both teams can’t clinch the playoffs and their season means nothing to them now.  The New York Mets are 40 and 51 and currently in fourth place. The Miami Marlins are 34 and 55 and currently in fifth place.  If there is something that both teams have in common it’s that their owners, managers, and general managers are terrible.  They should not be able to own a team, coach a team, or make player contracts and sign new players.  My projection is for the next 3-4 years the New York Mets will be bad.  Their star pitcher Jacob Degrom his age is starting to catch up to him and the rest of the Mets team is old.  There only good prospect is Pete Alonso.  He is going to be the next Mike Trout.  He is fast, has a powerful swing, and a great batting average.  But frankly, the Mets don’t deserve Jacob Degrom or Pete Alonso.  The Miami Marlins will be good in 2-4 years because they still are a new team and adjusting their management. They are very close to finding the right chemistry.  But they will slowly start to get a little better over time.  Their star pitcher Caleb Smith has been one of the league leaders in the lowest ERA in the MLB this season and has been their ace for a couple of years.  But the difference between Jacob Degrom and Caleb Smith is that Caleb Smith is 4 years younger than Degrom and an ace at this age.  In my opinion, in about 4 years the Miami Marlins and New York Mets will become the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals of today.  How would you manage these teams and bring them up from dead?
