Astacio was still upset about his good buddy Darryl Kile, and he pitched like it. Long moment of silence before the game.

What I remember about this game was this: It was weird to see the Mets play in Kansas City (an AL town) and that Ch. 11 which broadcast the game was the only VHF channel in New York NOT to cover the funeral of Ronald Reagan. If you didn't have cable in NYC that night there was the Mets, PAX- TV and the 2 local Spanish stations with their programming and little else.

The culimation of an awful week. The Mets couldn't do anything right. They botched a couple of bunts. Bad baserunning as Matsui rounded second and was thrown out with two outs, and Piazza on deck. Weathers as usual stinks it up giving up a run in the eighth. The Mets tie it upon a big hit by Zeile, but he undoes his good deeds by running from second and being doubled up on a Matsui liner. Howe for some reason sent Weathers out for the ninth, and typically he lost the game.

This was the infamous game where either David Weathers or Art Howe threw a trash can in the clubhouse after the loss.

I remember settling in at the game to see Syndergaard getting rocked. He escaped the first only allowing a run. Then Wright stands in and crushes a bomb and Citi goes nuts. Then in the second Syndergaard gets smacked around again by KC and I think that this really is the end. But then the offense comes alive, led by my man Curtis Grandson disposing of one down the right field line, and Syndergaard pitches a beauty the rest of the way through. I got a false sense of hope after the game, but hey, here's always next year.

Great season...lousy ending! I was wishing and hoping (like Dusty Springfield once sang) for a Game 6 but Familia, Duda, etc blew it BIG TIME!!! And when Wade Davis struck out Wilmer Flores at 12:34 am, THAT WAS THAT!! I had to go to work on Monday (I would lose the Election Day holiday pay if I didn't) and cried and sighed with my fellow Mets rooters but also had to put up with the BANDWAGON ROYALS FANS (aka Bronx Guido Redneck Idiots who are about as wonderful as leeches) who the previous weeks rooted for the DODGERS and then CUBS. But I took their vitriol in stride and did my best GANDHI imitation instead of TED NUGENT!! But I also believe in karma and revenge when the Mets kick that @#$% door down like Bum Phillips once said and win the 2016 WORLD SERIES while the BGRI and their arrogant fans are left for dead like Joan Rivers. Thanks for a Amazin' season, Mets and see you guys in March!!

Tough ending to the season, was hoping we could take it all the way. Mets just made too many mistakes in this series. Defensive miscues and blowing 2 ninth inning leads doomed us. Having said that, this team far exceeded my expectations. I thought a playoff birth was possible, but a trip to the World Series: did not see that in the cards. Harvey was awesome and pitched his heart out. Love what the rotation will look like next year as we will be adding Wheeler to the mix. Can't wait for 2016!!! GO METS!!

A tough ending to an amazing and unexpected season. With the starting pitching it seemed possible to go all the way, but you can't blow three late inning leads in the postseason. My son and I stayed beyond the bitter end, still can't figure out where all those KC fans came from. We watched the celebration and next time will enjoy it when it's our turn. We were at the first pitch of opening day and the last one of game 5. Lots of great baseball in between. Another run in 2016 sounds good!

This was the first Mets game ever played in the month of November (NOT counting the Mets post- season goodwill tour of Japan in 1974) and also this was the last game at Citi where Pepsi products would be sold because Coca-Cola is returning in 2016 to be the official soft drink of the Mets.

I remember this game. Noah Syndergaard gave up a leadoff triple,
and then struck out the side.
All the talk beforehand was about payback, but the game was
decided with baseball, not violencia.
Neil Walker hit his first Met homer while the guys in the booth were
busy talking to Commissioner Rob Manfred, and that was all the
scoring there was. Three Met relievers gave the mighty
Syndergaard three perfect innings of relief, and the Mets get out of
town with a split against the World Champs.
