Mets' collapse

Where does this rank among biggest collapses ever in terms of missing the postseason? Seven games up with 17 to play. Just curious to hear some responses, is it up there with Bucky Dent? Worse?


Lay off the 1978 Red Sox. That team won 99 games, *second most* in baseball, and won its last EIGHT games in a row just to make the one-game extension. History has been incredibly unfair to that team, but the story has been told so many times, it's easy for everyone to parrot.

I'm not making a judgement about them, but didn't they have a rather large lead in the summer. I'm seeking knowledge and info from more seasoned baseball fans for a perspective on how big of a collapse the Mets had.

Good article on all-time chokes:

I'd rank the collapse of the Soviet Union and maybe the video game Collapse ahead of the Mets, but otherwise, it would be #1.

It was Greg Norman at the Masters-esque. Isn't that the worst of all time in any sport?
