METS REWIND
A return to October baseball, a new GM and manager and ...

The opening of Citi Field was expected to further lift the Mets’ fortunes, but owner Fred Wilpon ran into major financial and legal troubles after being victimized in (and, some allege, associated with) Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme.

The resulting soap opera nearly bankrupted the Mets and had a deafening effect on the team, which has struggled to stay relevant despite the presence of gifted young guns Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard; a brief spring to the top did lead to a National League pennant in 2015.

2010-2019

The New York Mets have recorded seven losing seasons in the first nine years of the most recent decade. Since 2010, the Mets have a record of 707-751 (.485 winning percentage). Despite the lack of success over the entire decade, the Mets did return to the World Series in 2015, only to loss in five games to the Kansas City Royals.
