Mets Choke…Again

Posted by Mike on September 29, 2008

For the second year in a row, the New York Mets have coughed up the division title, and also a chance at making the playoffs. The Mets were up 3.5 games in the NL East on September 10, and they managed to not only blow there chances at winning the division, but with yesterday’s loss to the Florida Marlins, they cost themselves a shot at the Wild Card. They had the second highest payroll in all of baseball with a payroll of $140 Million dollars, and with the acquisition of Johan Santana a lot was expected of the Mets this year. But in their typical fashion, they choked and cost themselves a shot at the playoffs. All they had to do was beat the Florida Marlins on Sunday, and today there would be a game between the Brewers/Mets for the rights to the Wild Card. But, thanks to Scott Schoeneweis and the rest of that Mets bullpen, they will be watching the divisional series at home, in there typical Mets fashion.
