Mets Secure Another Losing Season

In losing the first game of yesterday's doubleheader, the Mets have lost 82 games this season and in the process have secured a fifth consecutive losing season.  As per ESPN's Adam Rubin, the organization has had only three worse stretches: Two stretches of seven years taking place from 1962 to 1968 and again from 1977 to 1983, then another period of six years from 1991 to 1996.

Times are tough in Queens, as illustrated by the maybe 5,000 fans in attendance for the night cap yesterday.  Some question whether things are set to get better or worst next season.

Plenty has been said this week about the Pittsburgh Pirates securing their first winning season since 1992.  Now that that streak is over, its important to note that by season's end the Mets and Astros will be deadlocked as the only team's to not have a winning season since 2008.

Call them inept, incompetent, or flat broke.  Fan morale has reached new lows this season for good reason.  The Mets must make strides this winter before the franchise becomes irrelavent in the New York sports landscape, because right now its five seasons and counting...
