The New York Mets are one of two teams that represent the city of New York in the MLB, the other being the Yankees. The Mets hold the distinction of being the first ever expansion team as they joined the league in 1962. The club is based in Queens and plays in the East division of the National League. At the time of its entry in the MLB, the two other big teams from New York, New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers were relocating. So in order to fill the void, the Mets were created.
Not a Promising Start
The club did not have a promising start and in fact, posted the worst ever season record of 40-120 in their first full season. However, the team kept trying and the fans rallied around the young club as it tried to compete against bigger, older clubs. The faith of both club and fans culminated in the ‘Miracle Mets’ of 1969 taking home the World Series against the much vaunted Baltimore Orioles. Over the years, the Mets have added to that number by winning two more World Series, one in 1986 and the other in 2000.
Pitted against the Mets will be the team from the Central division of the National League, the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Bucs are everything the Mets are not. The club was founded in 1881 and thus is amongst the oldest in the league. The Bucs hit the ground running and have never looked back. They joined the league in 1887 and in a brief span of time, clinched three NL pennants. The Pirates participated in their first World Series in 1903 and won the whole thing in 1909. Since then, the Pirates have played in five more World Series, winning four and losing just once. This is one team you can never count out.
