To make a long story short the Mets lost 12 of their last 17 while the Philadelphia Phillies won 13 out of 17 to win the National League East title. It is arguable the worst collapse in baseball history. I arranged my schedule today to be home at 1 PM to be able to watch the entire last game which began with the Florida Marlins scoring 7 runs in the first inning off Tom Glavine. The final score was Florida 8 Mets 1. I'll have to root for the Yankees to go all the way.
