HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I chose this as the best win because of its position in the Wild Card hunt, the many lead changes, the thrill of battling back every time we were down, and the batflip. The combination of all of that led this to my choice for the best win of 2016.

The Mets were coming off a devastating sweep at the hands of the upstart Braves that ended with a great catch on a would-be-Walkoff by Yoenis Cespedes. The Mets, the Cardinals and the Giants all stood at 80-72 in the Wild Card race, and it was crucial for the Mets to get back in the win column. The Phillies clearly got amped up for the game, and gave the Mets their best. Luckily, swings from two shortstops prevented a loss from occurring.
