Just 88 days after Neil Armstrong took his giant leap, the Amazin’s were champions. Now Tyler Clippard is convinced an extraterrestrial has led the Mets back to the Fall Classic. “ He’s not human. He’s not on this p lanet right now,” Clippard said about D aniel Murphy. “Another life form j umped into his body.” Heading into a World Series match- up that opens in Kansas City or Toronto on Tuesday night, it seems as if it is in the stars whenever the Mets are successful. In 1969, there were hard-to-fathom catches by Tommy Agee and Ron Swoboda in the Series against Baltimore. Cleon Jones reached first base on a hit batsman call during a Game 5 rally when manager Gil Hodges showed a ball with shoe polish to an umpire. In 1986, there was Mookie Wilson’s g rounder that went through Bill Buckner’s legs at first base to cap a three- run, 10th-inning rally in Game 6 against Boston after the Mets were twice down to their season’s final strike. Now there’s Murphy, who has seven home runs in nine playoff games, setting a major league record by going deep in each of his last six. His first-inn ing home run in Game 2 against the Cubs was on a pitch a Lilliputian 1.064 f eet above the ground, according to MLB’s Pitch f/x system. Only one home run in the entire major leagues this year came on a ball hit lower. “ This is special. This is special. I can’t stop saying it,” captain David Wright exclaimed. “The ‘69 Mets, the ‘86 Mets, the 2000 Mets — we are amongst the best Mets teams to ever p lay, and I couldn’t be more proud.” N ew York’s players arrived back at Citi Field at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, two motorcycle police in front and two more behind the team’s two buses. Standing about 150 feet from the auto c hop shops across the street from right field, about 50 fans greeted the team in t he parking lot. Long the second team in town, the Mets won their fifth pennant to the Yankees’ 40. They were nicknamed the Ama- zin’ Mets by Casey Stengel, their first manager, and became the upstarts, first at the Polo Grounds for their first two seasons, then at windy Shea Stadium from 1964-2008. Jane Jarvis played the o rgan, Ralph Kiner, Bob Murphy and Lindsey Nelson entertained fans in the b roadcast booth, the Rheingold jingle played at the ballpark and Karl Ehrhardt lauded players with homemade signs from 1964-81. “THERE ARE NO W ORDS” was his message after Jones caught the final out against the Orioles. The Tom Seaver-Jerry Koosman-Gary Gentry Miracle Mets of 1969 morphed into Tug McGraw’s Ya Gotta Believe M ets of 1973, who lost a seven-game W orld Series against Oakland. After a lean decade, the Doc, Straw, Keith and The Kid team won a seven-game classic against the Red Sox in 1986, and a Mike Piazza-led team lost a five-game Subway S eries to the Yankees in 2000. T hen, after another trough that inc luded multimillions in losses incurred b y owners in the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, they are back in the Series led by a brash young pitching staff that includes the Dark Knight (Matt Harvey), Thor (Noah Syndergaard), the deGrom- inator (Jacob deGrom) and Steven Matz, agroup whose 147 regular-season career starts easily would be the fewest for a Series foursome, according to STATS. If the Mets win the Series, a shampoo end orsement deal for deGrom and Synder- g aard seems inevitable. New York al- r eady promotes deGrom with a HairWe- G o hashtag. Add in Wilmer Flores’ crying on the field in July when he thought he’d been traded to Milwaukee, Bartolo Colon’s entertaining at-bats and behind-the-back- flip toss and Yoenis Cespedes’ stimulating speed and sock, and the Mets transformed from routine to riveting. “It was a long time coming,” said Wright, who signed with the Mets as an 18-year-old in 2001, made his big league debut three years later and was appointed captain in 2013. “We’ve been through some bad times. We’ve been through S eptembers where you’re just playing out the schedule, and that’s no fun. To be able to completely reverse that 180 and now celebrate and get the chance to go the World Series, I wish I could bottle it up.” Terry Collins had not led a major league team since 1999 when was hired before the 2011season. Now 66, the old- e st manager in the major leagues, he had skippered 1,688 regular-season games b efore advancing to the Series for the first time. Abaseball lifer, he talked about his mother writing a sick note to school for h im in the fifth grade so he could watch the 1960 World Series between Pittsburgh and the Yankees. And Wednesday night’s pennant win came on what would have been his parents’ 73rd wedding an- n iversary. K ismet. “I’m sitting there tonight thinking, holy crap, now you’re in it after all these years,” Collins said. “It was worth the wait. It was worth all the work.” M e ts soar into stratosphere on Murphy’s unearthly bat RONALD BLUM ASSOCIATED PRESS POOL PHOTO-USA TODAY SPORTS Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy poses with the NLCS MVP trophy after Wednesday’s win over the Chicago Cubs clinched a berth in t he World Series. BASEBALL LOS ANGELES - Don Mattingly won’t return as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers next year after agreeing with his bosses that he and the team n eeded a fresh start. Mattingly said Thursday in a statement distributed by the team that it’s “the right time and right move for both p arties.” Los Angeles was 446-363 in five years under Mattingly, finishing with a w inning record in every season and claiming the last three NL West titles. But the Dodgers have not reached the World Series since winning the champi- o nship in 1988. The 54-year-old former Yankees star ranks sixth in wins among Dodgers managers. After the Dodgers lost 3-2 to the New York Mets in a decisive Game 5 of the NL D ivision Series, Mattingly met with president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, general manager Farhan Zai- di and Josh Byrnes, senior vice president o f baseball operations over the last week. “We all felt that a fresh start would be g ood for both the organization and me,” Mattingly said. “We talked about several scenarios, including my returning in 2016. However, I believe this is the right t ime and right move for both parties.” The franchise with baseball’s highest payroll, a record $289.6 million as of the end of the regular season, managed just two playoff victories before losing to the Mets. Los Angeles reached the postsea- s on in three straight years for the first time but the Dodgers won just one series, beating Atlanta in the Division Series two years ago, while losing three. Matt ingly was a holdover from the previous front office regime, having been manager Joe Torre’s hand-picked successor i n 2010 after he coached under the Hall of Famer for seven seasons in New York and Los Angeles. Dodgers, Mattingly mutually part ways BETH HARRIS ASSOCIATED PRESS BASEBALL MLB
