12 Worst Sports Franchises

9. New York Mets

What a difference five years makes. Five years ago, the Mets took the St. Louis Cardinals to the brink of the NLCS, losing on a Yadier Molina homer in the ninth inning of Game 7. And then it all came tumbling downhill. In 2007, they blew a 7.5 game lead in mid-September. In 2008, they blew a 3.5 game lead to lose the East. Omar Minaya’s firing of Willie Randolph while on a West Coast swing was heavily criticized, and big name free agents Johan Santana and Francisco Rodriguez both flamed out quickly. Owner Fred Wilpon was ensnared in a ponzi scheme. And no team in baseball has been cursed more by injuries over the past few years. It’s a mess in New York, and with Daniel Murphy and Jose Reyes both going back down with injuries recently, it’s not exactly looking up. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Kathy Kmonicek)
