The WWL & Blogosphere’s Short-Sighted Take On Mets Misery

Posted in Baseball, History's Not Happening at 4:29 pm by

ESPN NY’s Matt Simon polled a handful of prominent Mets bloggers and asked them to select their most gut-wrenching moment in Amazins history.  Out of oh-so-many to choose from (“Al Harazin cannot find his pants”, “George Foster in the recording studio”), the finalists included the late season collapses of 2007 and 2008, the Yankees winning the 2000 World Series at Shea, Carlos Beltran taking a called third strike from Adam Wainwright to end the 2006 NLCS, and Kenny Rogers walking in the winning run in the 11th innning of 1999′s NLCS Game 6.

Grim stuff, indeed.  But how did this historic day fail to make the cut?
