The New York Mets' 101-win season proved to be all for naught on Sunday, as the team fell in a decisive Game 3 to the San Diego Padres and was eliminated from the postseason. New York rallied on Saturday after losing the opening contest, but managed to record just one hit in a 6-0 shutout defeat with the series on the line.

After this bitter exit from the playoffs, pitcher Max Scherzer offered an NSFW quote to describe how he's feeling.

It's safe to say Scherzer isn't happy following San Diego's dominance. The Mets' Wild Card loss also means tough decisions will need to be made on a roster that's in flux, which adds to the sour taste players are currently dealing with.

Scherzer will certainly wonder about how he could've changed the outcome of this series. He struggled in Game 1, giving up 7 earned runs in not even full five innings. The ace didn't get any help from the Mets' bats, though, and that theme popped up again on Sunday in the series-clincher.

Now New York must figure out how to retool in 2023 while several players prepare to hit the open market in free agency. At the very least, Scherzer will still be around to lead this pitching staff.
