Baseball's biggest collapses
Infielder David Wright (left), manager Willie Randolph and the Mets had a seven-game lead over the Phillies with 17 games left, setting the stage for one of the most epic collapses in baseball history. The Phillies promptly swept the Mets in New York to cut the lead in half, and then the Mets lost 10 of their next 15 games. The Phillies and Mets were tied heading into the last game, but the Phillies beat the Nationals and the Mets lost to the Marlins. The Phillies made the playoffs, and the Mets didnt.
