Futility is often a word linked to the Mets, and who dealt with it more than Anthony Young who lost 27 consecutive decisions, including No. 24 on this date in 1993, losing 5-3 to St. Louis.
From April 14, 1992 while with the Mets, until May 1, 1994, then with the Chicago Cubs, Young lost 27 straight decisions.
That stretch including 13 quality starts, defined as giving up three runs in at least six innings.
Young finished retired in 1996, last pitching for Houston, with a 15-48 record, but a decent 3.89 ERA.
Do you remember Young and that stretch? If so, please post your thoughts.
