What a rough month. 

The New York Mets continued their second-half swoon with a less than stellar August.

The Amazin's went 12-16 over the month, and are now sitting in 4th place in the East, 18.5 games behind the first place Nationals, and are 9 games behind St. Louis for the second wild-card spot.

The only real overriding positive about August for the Mets was the performance of their young starting pitchers, Matt Harvey and Colin McHugh, who have tried to convince Mets fans that the future is brighter than it seems.

So with the playoffs likely well out of the picture, what exactly is there for the Mets in September? It's going to be a combination of three things: playing the spoiler, finishing in 3rd place in the East, and trying to finish at .500.

To get back to .500, the Mets will have to win 19 of their last 30 games, so it will be a tall order to say the least.

Will they be able to accomplish those goals? Only time will tell, but what we do know is that it's time to look back on the August that was for the New York Mets.
