The Mets Florida State League team finished with a league worst 53-81 record. However, the good news in terms of wins and losses is that after a dreadful 19-50 first half, the club improved to go 34-31 in the second half, finishing 5.5 games behind the first place Daytona Cubs.
The Mets started the season as poorly as a team possibly could – by losing its first six games. Before April was out, the Mets had lost 11 in a row on their way to a 5-21 opening month. May, which featured a 12 game skid, was not much kinder, as the team finished the month 7-22.
As a team, the Mets lived near the bottom of the league statistical record boards in most categories. The team ERA of 4.43 was the worst in the league by over a third of a run. The Mets did walk just 389 batters, second fewest on the circuit. However, all of those strikes came at a cost, the staff gave up the second most homers (107), and struck out the second fewest (902) of any of the league’s units. The team scored 517 runs (3.7 r/g), second worst in the league and was in the bottom third of the league in AVG, OBP, SLG, HR, 2B, BB, and SB.
