If the Mets can’t get past the Padres, Gio says it will be a major indictment on the job Billy Eppler did at the trade deadline, and the pressure’s on to reach the NLDS.

“Pressure’s on, because they have the highest payroll in baseball,” Gio said. “I know the Padres spent a lot of money and are gonna spend even more money on Juan Soto. What did the Padres do at the trade deadline? Went all in. What did the Mets do? Got a bunch of tomato cans and tried to piece the whole thing together with duct tape and string.

“If they lose to the Padres, Billy Eppler’s ass will be in the jackpot for this as well. So you better win this series, or that would be pathetic. Absolutely pathetic.”
