Mets franchise misery index
It's been a rough week for the Mets, but that's nothing new.
On Tuesday, reliever Jenrry Mejia was hit with a 162-game suspension after his second positive steroid test of the season.
And on Thursday, the Mets blew a seven-run lead, capped by a go-ahead Justin Upton home run in the top of the ninth. A three-hour rain delay followed, and when the clouds cleared the Mets were retired in order.
But as bad as this week has been, the previous five decades have been much, much worse.
