Adam Rubin points out that Mets GM Sandy Alderson is on track to become the first general manager in the 52 year history of the franchise to post increasing loss totals in each of his first three seasons.
Sandy Alderson soon will become 1st GM in #Mets history to post increasing losses totals in each of his 1st 3 seasons from team inherited.

After losing the first game in tonight’s doubleheader, the Mets have clinched their fifth consecutive losing season. It is the fourth-longest losing streak in franchise history.
As a general manager, Alderson now has a streak of eight straight losing seasons that goes back to his tenure with the Oakland A’s when he left after five consecutive losing seasons and gave way to Billy Beane.
The pressure will be on for Sandy this offseason, his fourth since taking over the Mets.
