The 2013 New York Mets season was the franchise's 52nd season. The Mets hosted the 84th MLB All-Star Game on July 16 at Citi Field, their home for five seasons. On May 30, the Mets swept the Yankees for the first time in the history of the modern Subway Series. The Yankees had swept six games from the Mets in 2003.[1][2] the Mets finished the season with a record of 74-88, finishing third in the National League East Division. The season was the Mets' first non- fourth place finish since 2008.

Offseason[edit]

The Mets lost their rights to the Minor League Baseball affiliate Buffalo Bisons as their AAA team. For 2013-15, the Mets have agreed to a deal to claim the Las Vegas 51s as their newest minor league affiliate, for triple A.

On November 7, 2012, the Mets and outfielder Jason Bay agreed to part ways, with the team buying out the $21 million remaining on his contract and releasing him.

On December 17, the Mets and the Toronto Blue Jays agreed to a deal sending 2012 Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey, Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas to Toronto in exchange for prospects Travis d'Arnaud, Noah Syndergaard, and Wuilmer Becerra and veteran catcher John Buck.

On August 30, 2013, the Mets traded catcher John Buck and outfielder Marlon Byrd through the waiver process, to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Mets received reliever Vic Black, and Dilson Herrera.

On September 1, 2013, Sandy Alderson announced he expects manager Terry Collins to not be fired by the club. Fans and certain media members have been publicly criticizing Collins' moves in games, and his general managing presence, and repertoire.
