This pains me as a Mets fan. The circle of misery is complete. HOW do you blow a 7 game lead with 17 to play? The team played without a pulse, without any sense of urgency, and picked the wrong time of the year to play like garbage. They led practically the whole season and on paper should have easily won the division. Instead they get to go fishing while Mets fans will be watching the Yankees play in October, yet again. Congratulations, Phillies. As much as it pains me to mutter these words, you guys stepped it up and just wanted it more. Rollins deserves the MVP and you guys earned my respect. We still lead in World Series titles 2-1 and your team has been around for 126 years, so don't get too cocky.
