Re: Is it OK to call it a choke and still be proud of them?
How do they react to this? The Mets have not recovered or did not recover from chocking during the regular season with Randolph. Boston took a year from 1986 until 1988 but they could never beat OAK in 88 and 90 and then basically disappeared for about a decade from real contending.
The 1962 Dodgers took only 1 year to recover. Now it's going to be who cares if they win the division...if they are going to go all early 2000's Oakland A's or mid 2000's Twins on themselves.
