Mets Wrap: Putting A Bow On 2013

The New York Mets had as nice a day as they could have hoped for on the afternoon in which they said good-bye to another season steeped in frustration. Injuries to their two best players – David Wright and Matt Harvey – lengthy slumps and a patchwork outfield and bullpen all contributed to a fifth straight losing season. WRIGHT and PIAZZA Even so, the day had an element of joy...

Funny how one night after Carlos Gomez goes into "Falling Down" mode after hitting a home run off Paul Maholm, David Wright gets beaned in the head by an errant changeup by Johnny Hellweg.

The 2013 New York Mets baseball season is over. The games have come and gone and now we embark upon the most important off-season the franchise has had since 2005, if not ever.
