Meet The Mets! Meet The Mets!
The 1969 World Championship New York Mets
Of New York Town
As The 2006 New York Mets, once again, win the National League East Division. We don't care (nor should I even have to mention) that it took them 18 years to repeat this feat—let us just remember what happens two (as in 1969 and 1986) of the last four times that they have won their (1969, 1973, 1986, 1988) Division Championship.
