1993 New York Mets season

The New York Mets' 1993 season was the 32nd regular season for the Mets. The team sought to improve on its 72-90 mark from 1992. Instead, the Mets slid back and for the first time since 1967 lost 100 games. The Mets finished with a 59-103 record, their fifth worst in history, and finished last place in the NL East.

Jeff Torborg started the season as the Mets' manager but was fired thirty-eight games in with the Mets at 13-25. Dallas Green, who had been out of baseball since his firing as manager of the New York Yankees in 1989, was hired as his replacement and went 46-78 the remainder of the way. They played home games at Shea Stadium.

Offseason

Regular season

  • While with the Mets, from May 6, 1992 to July 24, 1993, Anthony Young lost 27 consecutive games in which he had a decision. This losing streak is the longest in Major League Baseball history.[6] The previous record was held by Boston Braves pitcher Cliff Curtis, who set the record of 23 consecutive losses in 1910-11. Young's losing streak was snapped on July 28 against the expansion Florida Marlins. Young allowed an unearned run in the top of the ninth to give the Marlins a 4-3 lead.[6] The Mets scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth against closer Bryan Harvey to win the game 5-4.
