The Bombers spent nearly $500 million in the offseason and this was the year that the Mets were finally expected to contend. Let’s just say it hasn’t worked out for either party.

The five-game run matches the club’s longest streak. New York also went five games with no more than four hits in 2004 and 1963.
So you can see why it sometimes takes Terry Collins hours to figure out what his lineup will be that day. He constantly has to wipe the tears from his eyes.
