Best Answer

The Mets were horrible for 7 years, and were mediocre for the first part of their eighth year, 1969. The Mets were 9 1/2 back in mid-August and then suddenly went 39-11 while the Cubs collapsed. The Mets then swept the Braves in the playoffs, and then shocked the Orioles in the World Series.

How many seasons did ed kranepool play with the New York Mets?

Ed Kranepool started and ended his career with the New York Mets. His MLB debut was on September 22, 1962 and ended almost exactly 17 years later on September 30, 1979.

At the time of his debut, Kranepool was only 17 years old (that's 6 years younger then the previous youngest call up). Because of his stats and contribution to the team, Kranepool was inducted into the New York Mets Hall of Fame in 1990.
