Don’t Expect A 1973 Finish, With This Front Office

The season is three months and 27 days old as of today. The Mets have spent only ten of those days with a losing record and by that I mean sub .500. And in that regard today the Mets are only a whopping three games under .500. In 1973, after 99 games the Mets were 44-55, eleven […]
