Mets Their Match

4 Sep

Marc Carig of The Athletic has a finely crafted analysis of the Mets’ heartbreaking loss to the Nats after taking a 10-4 lead, then losing 11-10.

For 58 seasons, the Mets have been to anguish what Van Gogh was to art. But there’s a reason that they’ve been masters of the craft. Every game is a fresh canvas for unprecedented misery.

For the 807th time in the history of the franchise, the Mets on Tuesday took a lead of at least six runs into the ninth inning. And for the first time ever, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, they blew it.
