Let's face it: The 21st century has not been all that kind to the New York Mets. Sure, they made the playoffs twice, including a World Series appearance in 2000. But that's about as good as it gets for the boys from Queens.
Since the turn of the century, the Mets have a record of 1119-1147 (.494). They have had eight losing seasons, including each of the last five campaigns. There have been epic late-season collapses and horrendous free-agent contracts. Five men have sat at the manager's desk since 2000, and there have been four general managers.
In terms of on-field personnel, the Mets have had some standouts but have also had their share of not-so-good players. But who were the best of the best? Well, since the Mets' own ballpark, Citi Field, hosted the 2013 All-Star Game, let's take a look at the team's All 21st-Century Team.
