The New York Mets are coming off a good but disappointing 2017 MLB Season. The Mets finished with a 70-92 record and failed to make the MLB Playoffs. The Mets will be looking to start the 2018 MLB Season how they began the 2017 season and get back to the 2018 MLB Playoffs and World Series.
The New York Mets were added to Major League Baseball (MLB) in 1962. Labeled as the in-town rival of the New York Yankees the Mets fight every year for their fan base, news coverage, and their reputation. The Mets play their home games at Citi Field in Flushing, NY and fans pile on the 7 train every game day to route on their beloved Mets.
The Mets were started by William Shea when the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants MLB teams moved across the country to California. New York City was one of the world’s biggest sports markets and was left without any baseball teams. He formed the Continental League to compete against the MLB with the promise of some of those teams moving into Major League Baseball. The New York Mets joined the National League in 1962.
After several failed years, the Mets took on a new name in 1969, “Amazin Mets”. They finished with 100 wins that season and won the National League Eastern Division. Led by Tom Seaver, Tommie Agee and Jerry Koosman, the Mets would go on to defeat the Baltimore Orioles to win the 1969 World Series.
The Mets would reach the MLB pinnacle once again in 1986. They would finish the season with 108 wins and won Game 7 against the Boston Red Sox to win their second World Series.
The Mets play in a very competitive National League East against teams like the Atlanta Braves, Miami Marlins, Philadelphia Phillies, and Washington Nationals. The Mets are looking to get back to the World Series and win their third ring this year!
