Moises Alou has the Mets longest hitting streak, 30 games, from August 31 through September 27 in 2007. Alou was 41 years old during his streak, and it is the longest hitting streak of anybody over 40. The streak was somewhat overshadowed by the Mets historic collapse. The previous Mets record was set the same year by David Wright. Most Met fans were happy to have that streak broken, as the streak was something of a black-eye: it occured at a time when Wright's other numbers were down, it spanned 2 seasons, and it jumped over the postseason in which Wright did have hitless games and generally failed to help the team. (Though Wright recovered and was arguably the NL's best player from mid-May through the end of the season). spanned 2 seasons, and ignored Wright's hitless games during his poor 2006 postseason.
I attended a Mets game against the Houston Colt 45s in the Polo Grounds in 1963 that ended a 17 game loosing streak, which was the longest up to that time. I can't imagine they've exceeded that.
In 1962 the Mets lost 17 in a row during their 120 loss inaugural year. The streak started on May 21 against the Astros and lasted until June 6 against the Philies (they beat the Cubs on June 8th 4-3)
Alou tied Hubie Brooks for the Mets' longest consecutive game hitting streak at 30 games.
In 2010 the Mets went 79-83 to finish 18 games back in 4th place. They had an 8 game winning streak from April 22nd to 30th and June 10th to 18th. Their longest losing streak was 6 from September 17th to 24th
5 games in 1985, two against the Cardinals and three against the Reds.
On April 15, 1968, the Houston Astros defeated the Mets 1-0 in a 24-inning game at the Houston Astrodome. The 6-hour, 6-min. contest, which ended with the Astros' Bob Aspromonte hitting a grounder through the legs of Mets shortstop Al Weis in the bottom of the 24th, remains the longest shutout game in Major League history.

September 11, 1974- 25 innings, 7 hours 4 minutes against the St. Louis Cardinals (Mets lost 4-3) (longest game to a decision without suspension in MLB history) April 15, 1968- 24 innings, 6 hour 6 minutes against the Houston Astros (Mets lost 1-0) (longest shutout game in MLB history) May 31, 1964- Game one 9 innings, Game two 23 innings, total of 32 innings 9 hours 52 minutes against the San Francisco Giants (Mets lost both games 5-3 and 8-6) (longest doubleheader in MLB history) (Ed Kranepool played all 32 innings, this was the day he was called up to the team after playing in both games of a doubleheader the day before in AAA)
Probably Daniel Murphy, though the Mets are likely going to look for a power hitting first baseman-outfielder to compete for time at that position.
Carlos Delgado is a power hitting first baseman for the Mets. He spent most of his career with the Blue Jays, then moving to the Marlins before being traded to the Mets.
