Yankees Suck?

As the Mets were winning a nice crisp game, the crowd became obsessed with the Yankees. There were several “Yankees Suck” chants. Why? Why are you concerned about them?
Is it the way they import stars from other teams? is it their better record? Is it that they are getting a new stadium? Is it that they couldn’t win their division last year? Is it that they have a former Yankee managing them?
I’m not sure what qualifies as sucking but they are the only team to win a World Series at Shea in 20 years. Learn from Boston. The Yankees own the past, there is nothing you can do. Win some championships and things change. Anyone who was around in the mid 80’s knows how fast the front-runners will come to Flushing.


A nice enjoyable 5-2 win last night with my favorite (current) Met on the mound, John Maine.

The Mets are claiming 46,106 attended this game. Try 15,000. I was there. I can’t find any pictures of the empty mezz and uppers, but a friend was there and he had a camera. I’ll try to get a reality check.

Heard around the uppers: people selling parts of their season plans, a discussion of “value” vs “bronze”, escalator theories, and criticism of Willie’s Pagan comments.

Great Pitching Matchup

22 years from now which one do you think will be a no-doubt Hall of Famer?
