We all know the story:
The New York Mets clinched the playoffs this past weekend for the first time in 9 years.

Here are some of the highlights
just 23 at the time.
Noah Syndergaard was a freshman in high school. Imagine that!
Hopefully he can bring back some of that magic 9 years later!
just 13 years old in 2006
Two years earlier, he had played in the Little League World Series!
Now that's a guy who has been in the game from a young age. It must be a dream come true for him to be in the playoffs!
Veteran infielder Juan Uribe - who is in doubt for the playoffs due to injury - had already established himself as a Major League hitter. He hit 21 homers for the White Sox in 2006.
Can you imagine being a slugger 9 years ago, and still producing the same effect today? Uribe is ageless.
Speaking of ageless wonders
That's Bartolo Colon!
He was the reigning AL Cy Young winner, pitching for the Indians in Cleveland. He was injured for most of the 2006 season, unfortunately.
