Had the Mets won their last three games of the season, they would've made the playoffs -- despite the improbable path they had before them on Friday night.
Instead, the Mets lost their final three games, culminating with a 15-5 blowout at the hands of the Nationals in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, and missed the playoffs for the fourth-straight year.
After the game, manager Luis Rojas and the players reacted to a season where they underachieved and failed to meet their lofty expectations.
