A Google Sheets-powered one-page app that allows the sports editors to quantify the New York Mets’ misery on a day-by-day basis.

Nobody had high hopes for the Mets coming into the 2018 season. Working with the Sports desk, we built a one-page interactive to capture and quantify the misery of the Queens, New York, ballclub. The interactive includes a misery score (calculated by a back-end misery equation), a featured quote, and a Mets injury tracker, all administered by the sports editors via Google Sheets.

I worked with the sports department, who told us what they wanted in the interactive, and the other interactive developer, who designed the interactive and wrote the CSS.

This is what I did:
