If the Mets ever get a new name, Numbnuts should be it.
Mets, Jets, Islanders, Rangers, Knicks, Nets. All great teams.

The only response to this is for a Boston fan to wear a jersey that says "All of the Mets Players" with almost every year as the number.
Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey's remarkable pitching run likely came to an end last night when he was caught on the mound with a Wiffle Ball by home plate umpire Eric Cooper. It is believed that Dickey has been pitching all of his recent games with the hollow, plastic, perforated ball.
Dickey was not caught with the ball until after recording the final out of the game, giving him back-to-back 1-hit shutouts. The final out was recorded on a pitch that started just above the grass, darted 10-feet towards the third base line, gained six-feet in altitude and then shot back over the plate at the last second, catching Orioles first baseman Chris Davis flatfooted for a called third strike.
The frustrated Davis remarked that he "hadn't seen a pitch like that since my older brother used to strike me out in Wiffle ball," as he headed back to the dugout. That comment raised Cooper's suspicions.

Even when making history the Mets manage to be embarrassing.
Never put a Canadian on your baseball team. It's Rule 1 of baseball.
"Sink clogged? Call Bobby Bonilla. Trouble opening a jar? Call Bobby Bonilla. Need something down from a shelf you can't reach? Bobby Bonilla is your man," federal judge Jed S. Rakoff wrote in his ruling. "Bernie Madoff robbed from you, but Bobby Bonilla can make your life easier."
Despite being out of baseball since 2001 and not a member of the Mets since 1999, Bonilla is still being paid $1.2 annually by the team through 2036 under the terms of a deferred payment plan that helped the franchise stay above water. Since Bonilla is still on the team's payroll, Judge Rakoff ruled he had the authority to include the six-time All-Star's services as part of the settlement.
"Do I need some things retrieved from my shelves? I sure do," said 82 year-old Edna Friedman, who lost her life savings to Madoff. "But Bobby Bonilla? He kind of sucked for the Mets. I'd much rather have Mike Piazza get a jar for me. He could hit and was very handsome."
If they're lucky, everyone died.
