New York Mets: The 10 Biggest Headaches in the Past Decade

With 2011 coming to a close and the Mets' 50th anniversary season around the corner, now is a good time to look back on the Mets' biggest headaches from the past ten years (2002-2011).

The past decade for the Mets was underachieving overall, as the team had a winning record in only four of those seasons (2005-2008), and within those seasons, they only won the NL East division title once in 2006. Bloated contracts, poor decisions and injuries definitely helped the Mets suffer in those years more than many people had expected them to.

Much of the blame for all this falls on the Mets' three previous general managers: Steve Phillips, Jim Duquette and Omar Minaya. Each of their starts of general manager were promising in the beginning, but by the time they all got fired, they were pretty much run out of New York due to some of the poor decisions they made.

Hopefully, this next decade will turn out better than the last one, but here are the Mets' ten biggest headaches from the past ten years.
