This team should be ashamed of themselves. They have let down their fans big time. As much as I hate to have to do this I have to congradulate the Phillies. You were the benificiary of a total gutless meltdown by the NY Mets. It's gonna be hard to sleep at night and I'm not watching anymore baseball this year. Thank God for Hockey and Football. Good luck to the fans that have teams in the playoffs. Except the Yankees.

That was a huge Choke job no doubt, BUT will NEVER come close to the Biggest choke in the history of all Sports. We can thank our Yankee friends for that one. Nice to have the #1 and arguably #2 biggest choke by a professional sports team residing right here in NYC. LOL
Go SOX!!!

Bill Buckner, Bucky F'n Dent, Carlton Fisk and 86 years of NOTHING. For 86 years the Red Sox were the best kind of rival, they laid down and lost every chance they got. It was getting boring, they had to win one or the Yankees would have had to make the Angels their number one rivalry and ditch Boston altogether. Now they can stay NY's rival for another 86 years.

Nothing like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I haven't been this bummed out over a sports heart break in a long time. I can't fathom the loss of heart in the Mets over the last month. Where was the passion ??? It kind of reminds me of seeing a bad Grateful Dead show or a lack luster ABB show ( haven't been many recently) but you know what I'm talking about. The talent is there, the record speaks for itself and they go out and lay a big zero. I've been a big Willie Randolph advocate this year and ultimatly the players do or don't get the job done but I think he takes big chunk of the responsibility on this epic collapse.

I guess I'll pull for an Epic Soxs/Yanks showdown and I can't decide if I'm adopting the D-backs or the Rockies as my NL team to follow. If I don't pick a team to support I won't even watch the games.

Question: I like that guy Byrnes on Arizona. Plays hard with a lot of gusto. The Mets could use a guy like him. I saw pics in Sports illustrated of fans holding up Steel Your Face logos with his number # 33 in the center. Is he a Dead Head ?

This was the worst choke in the history of MLB, BIGGER than the Yankees 2004 choke for the following reasons.

The Yankees had a bad week, losing 4 straight to a great team who went on to win the World Series

The Mets had a bad month, being beat night after night by by horrible teams, (the Nats, the Marlins) who had nothing to play for

I hope talking about 2004 will keep you warm during the offseason. Yankee fans will be busy enjoying the 2007 playoffs.

Not that it'll help Mets fans feel any better, but the Phillies in '64 were worse. Blowing a 6.5-game lead with 12 left is even worse than a 7 game lead with 17 to go.

Too bad for the Mets. The biggest choke in MLB history might have been the Phillies in the 60's. '61, '62, '64 ???? Anybody remember the exact year ? The Red Sox choke in 1978 was pretty darn tough too.

'04 was post season, a game 7 of a championship series. Anything can happen in a 7th game.
Stands to reason the Yankees were the first team to do that in the playoffs..their in it every year!
You gotta be in it to lose it.

This Met collapse over 17 games with a 7 game lead is worse.

i guess the gutless meltdown would also include the fact that the Phillies hammered the Mets in head to head meetings including 7-0 against them in August and September. I understand about being frustrated but the Phillies deserve some credit. With that said, they're the last team I will go for to win the World Series.

My first Met game was 1968. I was a regular at Shea in the late 70's when the place was so empty they closed the upper deck. Remember Dave Kingman? We used to see these strange tails off the baseball! (That's another story!) Yes it's a historic "collapse". But not a suprise to us oldtimers. Willie should have "whipped the horses" after we swept the Braves. Bench LoDuca. Bench Delgado. Shawn Geen and Ramon Castro play because they have the hot bats. Send a message to the rest of the team. Whoever has the hot hand down the stretch plays. Put the egos on the shelf. Willie didn't do that. Players thought they had it in the bag. I was at the game this past Monday. Pelfry pitching. Nats 3 Mets 0. Fourth or fifth inning. Pelfrey walks a guy with two out. He walks a second guy. I leaned over to wifey and said, "if Willie dosen't hook him-the next batter hits a homer and we're down 5-0". Willie didn't hook em. 5-0 nats. This bad MOJO started last year with Heilman's pitch to Molina, the Cards catcher. When he hit a homer, it was like the bad mojo stayed over the Mets. I felt we should go Monday. Had a bad feeling it might be the last game for us this year. My wife was angry they are tearing down Shea Stadium. Box out the little guy who can afford the cheap seats and build the luxury suites and raise the ticket prices. Maybe it's Shea's Revenge?

Pitching and Defense. Somehow Met management forgot that part.

Winner!!!! The Philly's only had to play .250 ball the rest of the way to clinch, but they lost 8 games in a row during that stretch, at home no less.

Might be interesting to start another thread for the biggest choke in sports history....

Haven't been able to understand why the media was calling it "the biggest choke in history, seven game lead with 17 to go" when, as Marley pointed out, the Phillies choke of '64 was worse. Neither is worse than the worst of all time though (for one game anyway) -- one strike away from a world championship, with a three run lead, and the Sox can't close the deal against the Mets in '86 -- people always talk about Buckner but there were a lot of other goats that day too.
NYY 2004 choke is right there too -- how I'll always love that -- thank you Dave Roberts

I feel your pain. But then I saw your Islanders logo and lost all faith in anything you have to say. Go Rangers!
