3. Rose and Cohen call Wilmer Flores‘ Walk-Off after Tears
How can you not love this?
Not only did it happen just last season, but also it represents the turning point of a mediocre Mets team to an Amazin’ Mets team.
Just days before, in a series against the Padres, Wilmer Flores found out in-game he was traded to Milwaukee…ouch.
It hurt even more when the trade fell through and Wilmer became a folk hero for this pennant-winning team.
Not until this moment. Opening up a massive three-game series with the Washington Nationals, behind by three games in the standings, Flores took a ball deep to left field in the bottom of the 12th to prove miracles really do happen.
The Mets won the game, they delivered a series sweep, and went on to win their first National League East division title since 2009.
