Carvel Ice Cream, it just tasted better at Shea.

The wild pitch that beat the Pirates in the final game of the 1999 regular season, to force a one game playoff against the Reds.

Burning the Mets: Scott Kazmir Trade

27

The 2004 trade of Mets pitching phenom Scott Kazmir is still as puzzling today as the day he was dealt. What the Mets got in return was hardly equal value for one of the best pitching prospects in the game.
