    the mets have about a 7ish year cycle give or take a year:

    Year 1: Awful
    Year 2: Awful
    Year 3: Awful with new IL record
    Year 4: Awful
    Year 5: Awful
    Year 6: Awful
    Year 7: Team of destiny

    Going back to 86 this is pretty accurate give or take a year.
    86: Champs
    93: trash
    00: Lost WS
    06: Lost NLCS; 07: collapsed only like the Mets know how
    15: Lost WS
    22: These mfs.

    LFGM. (Sorry but I can't stand Atlanta sports and Seaver / Strawberry / Piazza / Wright / deGrom have been much more likable for me)

    That's a crazy cycle they seem to be going through. I really hated the A's of the early 70's and I was pulling so hard for the Mets in '73, they let me down. My grandfather was a good friend of Jerry Koosman. They became friends when they both wound up stuck at a small airport during some bad weather and shared their love of flying. They flew together quite a bit after that.

    I'm sorry man, lol! I was a big Brooks Robinson/Jim Palmer fan back then and the A's kept them from winning more rings!

    ETA hated the Yankees and Reds in the 70's too! Still hate the Yankees.

    Ok - that's an acceptable reason. Brooks and Boog were two of my Dad's favorites - as was Earl Weaver.

    Yes they are. We'll see how the hold up over 162. I expect a good race... I like the Mets pitching, but I think the braves lineup will be much better

    Good weekend. Fried may be the best pitcher in baseball now. Acuna is back to Acuna. Hopefully Olson, Riley, and ozuna get going again this week

    I wouldn't get too attached to TD... I think waters is about to get his shot. Just a guess though

    I wouldn't mind seeing what Waters can do. Travis is someone that you can send back down and call back up if needed and he can do a decent job filling in.
