Here’s an interesting quote from Rich Couthino via Twitter:
For Met Fans who consider themselves "long suffering" consider since 1986 only Braves and Cards have been in more NLCS's than Mets

Honestly, I never looked at it this way, but it still doesn’t make me feel any better and that’s mostly because I thought we were good enough to win in about ten of those 25 seasons since 1986. In fact, 86 should have been the start of a dynasty, but it didn’t turn out that way. Possibly 2006 as well.
Plenty of missed opportunities…
