Jonah Keri is doing a series on failed dynasties. His piece on the '86 Mets captures exactly what is was like to be in the stands from '83 on, watching as it came together, then watching as it came apart. Those Mets were so good that the pieces that were traded away went on to bring championships for a lot of other clubs: Rick Aguilera, Lenny Dykstra, David Cone (acquired in '87. Ron Darling said, "David Cone came out of Kansas City like George Michael came out of Wham!"). For me it was Juan Samuel (for Dykstra and and Roger McDowell! Arrggh!) that really signaled that the club had lost its way, but Bret Saberhagen was also a sign-- how could they?

Alan Bara says it could happen for the Metropolitans this year. Maybe, although I think the club looks a little too old.
