NEW YORK (WFAN) – Happy Golden Anniversary to the New York Mets — with Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg coming out of the birthday cake.

The Mets started the next 50 years on Wednesday the same way they started the first 50: with Roger Craig in the house for a loss.

For a fun night with the entire family, you could come up with 10 songs for each free pass given to Washington.
