With his 10th career start for the Mets, Carlos Torres became the 9th pitcher in Mets history to have both started at least 10 games for the team and pitched in relief in at least 75 games for them.  The other eight guys: 

Aaron  Heilman (last pitched for the Mets in 2008)

Wally Whitehurst (last pitched for the Mets in 1992)

Terry Leach (last pitched for the Mets in 1989)

Tom Hausman (last pitched for the Mets in 1982)

Bob Apodaca (last pitched for the Mets in 1977)

Ray Sadecki (last pitched for the Mets in 1977)

Tug McGraw (last pitched for the Mets in 1974)

Danny Frisella (last pitched for the Mets in 1972)

Trade Wheeler or Syndegaard for Castro, sign Melky and you have a team that should be in the mix.

Melky

Murphy

Castro

Duda

Wright

Grandy

d'Arnaud

Lagares

Harvey

deGrom

Colon

Niese

Wheeler/Syndegaard

Bullpen back end looks good. Familia closing. 90 win team provided Wright and Granderson bounce back and our big pitcher stays healthy. Just a suggestion. I hate trading a pitcher, but you have to give to get

I've been a Mets fan since 1976. There have been a few ups, at least three times as many downs but I've approached almost every year with optimism, somehow hoping that someone will rise up (a la Keith Hernandez in the 80s) and lead this team. Be it a player, manager, or even ownership. With the exception of Bobby V., no one has risen to the occasion since '83. This is getting tiring, especially this year. This team should be ashamed that they're 8 games under .500. Where's the passion, anger, the desire to drive in a key run when the game is on the line. Before I stick it to the players exclusively (and they don't escape culpability), where is the manager, the front office, or ownership demanding better play? This team suffers from such a deeply rooted losing culture that it's sickening! They are simply making a mockery of their fans. Show me something, Mets! Stop lying down!

@lindro88 Need way more than Castro and Melky.  This is one of the worst offensive teams in the history of baseball.

@Rodney Pelletier they are simply an abhorrent club. the ineptitude just oozes from everywhere. How is it that clubs like the Royals overachieve and find themselves in pennant races but never the mets? Again, it is now better they lose games to protect the first round pick (wait, they wont sign a guy anyway) ... shambolic effort from the organization for years. How does it take a decade to rebuild?? It is entirely comical that the team's best player this year was the guy the front office tinkered with in order to get him to play the way THEY thought he should, but he only became decent after ignoring them.


While the owners are a disgraceful lot of liars, how can even they allow the same thing to go on next year? New GM or new manager is a must, you cannot have dreadful season after season and have NOTHING change. 


Rodney is spot on in regards to the emotion surrounding the club. These guys just pick up their checks each week, no bother what happened before or what will happen after. They've become the most lifeless and pathetic franchise. Terry Collins is such a fool, so far out of his depth that I actually feel bad for him. Does he know how ridiculous he looks?

Unfortunately, the ineptitude comes from ownership. The front office has done a nice job building the minor league system and the pitching staff. However, I don't understand the dichotomy between the big league club and everywhere else. Furthermore, couple in the fact that the Braves (especially after losing the better part of their rotation), Marlins (???), and even the Yankees (look at that infield and starting rotation) are playing better than the Mets, someone in the organization has got to say "why aren't we at least as good record-wise?" The only other factor I see is culture, and ownership clearly defines that.
