The 50 Biggest Fails in New York Mets History

#27. Finish 60.5 Games Out of First

Date: 1962

It's a truism across sports: If a team is ever described as being "lovable," it means they suck. The 1962 Mets put up a record of 40-120, featured players traded for themselves, an "ace" who went 10-24, and some of the most inept playing the sport had ever seen. The next season, the Mets followed up with a stellar record of 51-111. They were lovable (they outdrew the Yankees their first five years), but they were deplorable, too. FTL!
