Who you gonna blame besides Leo? And of course, choking, which it's Leo's job to prevent. OK, I give some credit to a marvelous surge by the Mets. And chemistry. Leo walking off the team for a weekend to visit his wife's kid at summer camp during a crucial series. Pizza Man peeving off all of MLB and most of his teammates. Must have been a tight clubhouse that September.

Good times.
Pitching stafff has to take alot of the blame for the collapse- when they lost 11 of 12 to give up the lead- they gave up 6+ runs in 7 of the 12 losses. To be fair to Durocher- not much of a bench to work with.
