55 a few years ago.
The Mets finished their 2007 season with an 88-74 record placing them one game behind the Phillies. The Mets had had a 7 game led over the Phillies on September 12 but lost the playoff berth after losing the last game of the season. It is regarded as one of the worst regular season collapses in baseball history.
One word! Four letters! The METS!
A save is credited to a pitcher who finishes a game with a certain number of saves or percentage of save opportunities. Mariano Rivera is the MLB's leader in one season's saves with 652.
Carlos Gomez played one season with the Mets (2007) and wore #27.
Bob Stanley, who pitched with the Red Sox between 1977-1989, is the Red Sox career saves leader with 132. Through games played on June 13, 2009 Jonathan Papelbon has 129 career saves and, barring disaster, will take over as Red Sox career saves leader shortly.
The Mets did not sign Rickey back for the 2008 season. As of right now he is affiliated with no one.
Ed Farmer with 30 in 1980.
