The Mets produced another sorry ending to another season, this one being the final ever at Shea Stadium. Brian Heyman provides the details on yesterday’s 4-2 loss to the Marlins.
It couldn’t happen again, but it did, Sam Borden writes. Sam covered the Yankees’ collapse in the 2004 ALCS, but he can’t remember a fan base having to endure a stretch this crushing. … This team’s destiny was remarkably similar to that of last year.
The fans were crushed. They never thought it would happen again either, and it left them feeling bittersweet about yesterday’s poorly-timed postgame ceremony.
Rick Carpiniello tells us more about a ceremony doomed to matter much less than the one in the Bronx from the very start. After all, yesterday’s game couldn’t have been more meaningful. The Yankees, despite their grand history, couldn’t say the same.
