After the Mets appeared in the World Series, the team didn't match its previous success under Valentine. In 2002, as Valentine and team officials struggled for power, the clubhouse (comprised of superstars like Roberto Alomar, Mike Piazza, and Mo Vaughn) deteriorated. The Mets fell into last place and finished 26 1/2 games out of first. Valentine was fired after the season.
