A lot went wrong for the Mets in 2009, so much so that we're already referring to the team in the past tense despite the six games remaining on their schedule. Some players got hurt. Others underperformed. Still more were predictably awful. The front office had its own share of miscues, including problems with their selection of on-field and off-field personnel.
If you could go back to any point in the past year and change one thing -- undo an injury, take back a signing, jump on a missed trade opportunity -- what would you do? Assuming baseball omnipotence and uncanny elasticity of the space-time continuum, what single change would you make to the Mets-related events of the past twelve months?
