Another thing the Braves fans can be happy about it another September collapse by the New Your Mets! For the second year in a row, the Mets were poised to win the division or at least the Wild Card, but choked again in the last weekend of the season. If they would have beat the Florida Marlins on the last day of the regular season, they would have had a one game playoff against Milwaukee to see who gets the last playoff spot. But they lost the last game ever in Shea Stadium and the stadium will now be demolished just like the Mets playoff dreams. This is the first year in 12 or 13 that there is not a New York team in the playoffs and I could not be happier! So even thought the Braves didn’t make the playoffs either, we didn’t have our hopes crushed on the last day of the season……. again!
Nice job Chipper and way to choke Mets!
