2013 New York Mets Schedule
The New York Mets will play 162 games during the 2013 MLB schedule. The Mets were disappointed with the 2013 MLB schedule as they will now only play cross-town rivals the New York Yankees four times. The lack of derby games will not help New York Mets tickets sales that struggled in 2012.
New York Mets Franchise History
The New York Mets entered the National League in 1962 and in their first season finished with the worst record in the history of MLB. The Mets struggled until 1969 which was the first season of divisional play in MLB. The franchise took advantage of the structure change and, known as the ‘Miracle Mets’ went all the way to the World Series where they defeated the Baltimore Orioles in the biggest upset in World Series history. The Mets returned to the World Series four years later losing a seven game season to the Oakland Athletics. New York struggled in the late 1970s and early 1980s but in 1986 found form and returned to the World Series. The Mets looked as though they were going to lose to the Red Sox but a fielding error from Bill Buckner allowed the Mets to win game six and go on to claim the World Championships. After a decade of lackluster performances the Mets returned to the playoffs in 1999 and in 2000 went all the way to the World Series where they lost to local rivals the New York Yankees. The Mets have qualified for the MLB playoffs just once since 2000 and haven’t had a winning season since 2008.
New York Mets Offensive Star: David Wright
David Wright selected by the New York Mets during the supplemental round of the 2001 MLB draft. Wright spent two full seasons in the minor league before being promoted to the Mets major league roster in 2004. The third baseman quickly became the leading hitter for the Mets and in 2005 finished the season as a top ten hitter in the National League. Wright took his game to an elite level in 2006 and since then has been a regular selection for the MLB All-Star game. Wright has been the Mets clear franchise player for a number of years and in 2012 signed a massive eight year contract extension. The Mets are clearly looking to build their roster around Wright.
New York Mets Defensive Star: Jonathon Niese
Yovani Gallardo was selected in the second round of the 2004 MLB draft by the Milwaukee Brewers. After impressing in the minors Gallardo was called up to the MLB in 2007 but had his first two seasons in the league ruined by injuries. In 2009, he started thirty games for the Brewers and became only the four pitcher in franchise history to strike out over 200 batters in a season. Gallardo had another strong year in 2010 and was awarded with selection for the MLB All-Star game and the Silver Slugger Award. The right hander has been a remarkably consistent asset for the Brewers, in recent seasons, and is one of the best hitting pitchers in the MLB. If he can take his game to an elite level the Brewers will be definite World Series contenders in 2013.
New York Mets Manager: Terry Collins
Terry Collins is one of the most experienced managers in Major League Baseball. Collins started his managerial career with the Houston Astros in 1994 who performed well under Collins but failed to qualify for the playoffs finishing second all three years he was in charge. After being fired by the Astros he joined the Anaheim Angels and had similar results. However, after a failing out with several players he resigned. After an eight year break he returned to managing in Japan before signing with the New York Mets in 2011. The Mets have failed to improve under Collin’s leadership and he will need to produce a winning season if he is going to hold onto his job beyond 2013.
