The Five Longest Mets Home Runs of 2011

There's no baseball on tonight at all, and over the coming weeks, the postseason will eventually give way to winter, which kind of sucks. There won't be another Mets game, of course, for quite a while. If you need your fix of baseball this evening, take in the videos below.

The Mets may not have hit a lot of home runs this season, but that doesn't mean there weren't any tape-measure shots along the way. Watching each of these home runs is still pretty awesome. As it turns out, the top five all traveled over 440 feet, according to data on the ESPN Home Run Tracker. Perhaps this is an exercise in Mike Stanton envy, but maybe Ike Davis and Lucas Duda turn out to be a feared duo of power hitters in the middle of the Mets lineup for years to come.
