At the end of the year, one team wins, every other team loses. In the world of professional sports there are no moral victories or nice tries. You either accomplished the goal and won the title, or you failed in your quest. That's one way of looking at the 2015 New York Mets. But there's also another side to this team. This team took us on an incredible ride from July 31st (which should be remembered as the day Wilmer hit a walkoff home run, not the day we got Cespedes) until Game 4 of the NLCS. It's unfortunate the car ran out of gas before the journey ended, but it was still a fun journey. The enduring memory of 2015 for most fans will be how Wilmer went from weeping to winning in the span of two days.
