NOT the Worst Collapse
I stand corrected … the Mets’ September was NOT the worst collapse in the history of Major League Baseball (it only felt like it).
Astute and loyal MetsToday reader “sincekindergarten” gave me this tidbit:
I just figured out that the ’07 Mets lost a game in the standings every 2.428571 games played (17 total games, 7 games up), yet the ’64 Phillthies lost a game in the standings every 2.153846 games played (14 total games, 6.5 games up). So, they still lead MLB in totality of collapse.
Grasping at straws here for positives, I know, but we’ll take whatever we can get.
