Where we endeavor to stay positive about the 2011 Mets…

Mets Minutia – 12/4/09

Posted by JD on December 4, 2009

Today’s Mets Minutia: exiting 2009, the New York Mets have lost 3,981 games. That means that barring an absolutely historic effort, the Mets will lose their 4,000th game next year. That’s not the worst of it. The Mets would have to win 364 consecutive games (that’s TWO undeafeted seasons, plus two games) just to break even.

So, while we’ll undoubtedly see the franchise’s 4,000th loss next year, it’ll be a long, long time until we see the Mets break even. Sigh.
