@Mets vs. @Yankees the 2015 Edition #SubwaySeries

Full Disclosure, I am a HARDCORE Mets fan and I hate the Yanks aka the Skanks!

Once again it’s that time of the year in the baseball season; New York Mets vs New York Yankees!

Inter-league play started back in 1997 and for Mets fans, outside of the 2000 World Series and the 2006 playoff run, Mets’ fans have looked forward to the Subway Series.

And after all these years the Subway Series has lost its initial luster, but now we have the 2015 edition of the Subway Series!

For the first time the two teams will meet with both teams in 1st place, and both teams coming in on a high note.

The Mets are currently riding a 11-game winning streak and owning the best record in baseball (13-3). Their young squad with pitching studs Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, 2014 Gold-Glove center fielder Juan Lagares, rising star behind the plate Travis d’Arnaud (injured), and Lucas Duda are leading a revival in Queens. Of course we cannot forget about the ‘Captain’ David Wright who was looking like his old self before straining his hamstring.

The Yankees after a slow start, finished a strong road-trip going 7-3 and taking 2 out of 3 from the powerful Detroit Tigers. Working thru a transition from the golden age of the ‘Core 4’ (Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte), the Yanks veterans seem to be coming together with unlikely heroes in Alex Rodriguez and former Mets cast-off Chris Young. Jacob Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Mark Teixeira round out this experienced team. If they can live up to their impressive resumes they will be a tough team offensively.

This should be a great series, as a Mets fan I am beyond excited! Looking forward to seeing deGrom and Harvey cleanup the Bronx!!!!

HAHA, anyone that knows me knew I was going to at least take one shot at the Skanks!

Let’s Go Mets!!!!!!!!!

Derek Jeter Hurt Again…

dm_130805_mlb_jeter_update

So not only are the New York Yankees getting their asses handed to them by the Red Sox this weekend, but now it looks like the ‘Captain’ Derek Jeter may have re-injured his surgically repaired ankle.  Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that the reason Jeter left the Yankees vs. Red Sox game was due to an apparent injury in the area of the ankle he broke in last season playoffs.

Replays show Jeter wincing as he attempted to make a throw to 1st from deep in the hole at shortstop.

Back in spring training Jeter was shutdown as he suffered a setback in returning from the initial surgery.  Another injury to that ankle and it may force him and the Yankees to think about moving from shortstop.

I know, I know that’s blasphemy but shortstop is too demanding of a position if Jeter cannot stay healthy.  Let’s not forget the strained calf the ‘Captain’ had, injuries to the legs for a shortstop is not a good thing.

What about a move to 3rd base, I mean there is a certain player over there who could be suspended for a VERY long time (Alex Rodriguez).  Or what about 2nd base, there is a player over there now who may sign somewhere else for big money  (Robinson Cano).

Oh well, bottom line Jeter is old and the Yankees have a whole a lot of issues and not much upside!

By the way, how many more years on Jeter’s contract???

Update – CT Scan on Jeter’s ankle is negative, Yankees will send his results to Dr. Robert Anderson who performed the surgery on his ankle!

See You Next Season Yankees…..

Now y’all know I enjoyed watching the Detroit Tigers eliminate the NY Yankees, I told many Yankee fans that they were not going to win World Series #28 this season.  During the regular season you can have all the offense you want but in the playoffs it’s about pitching.  Even though the Tigers led this entire game the announcers always reminded the viewers how powerful the Yankee lineup was, but it was the Tigers’ pitching that tamed the vaunted Yankee offense.

Yankee fans only have to look at the failures of Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez, most if not all Yankee fans will blame ARod but you have to look at Jeter’s failures as well.  At least ARod has some sort of excuse as he battled injuries in the 2nd half of the season (Knee and Thumb)….

What’s Jeter’s excuse????

Minka Kelly?

HAHA!!!!

Yes I know, 1st thing Yankee fans will say to me… Where are your Mets?  

And I will say, “Going fishing with your Yankees!!!”

Ok ok, I’ll stop… But before I go I want to play a tribute to all Yankee fans, y’all should be familiar with this after a Yankees’ loss

HAHA…..

Arrogance of Yankee fans…

So if you heard that loud annoying noise last night around midnight (eastern), it was Yankee fans crying about the news that Cliff Lee was going to sign with Philadelphia Phillies.  Don’t confuse the Yankee fans crying with the sobbing of Houston Texans as once again they lost a game in heartbreaking fashion, but that story is for another day; LOL!

Back to Yankee fans, the typical NY Yankee fan is so arrogant that they feel EVERY free agent should sign with them and that going anywhere else is like turning down the advances of Selita Ebanks.  After the disbelief of the idea that the #1 free agent on the market Cliff Lee would tell the Yankees no, fans of the Bronx Bombers began to go after the mental makeup Lee and his wife.  Seriously, was it not enough that classless Yankee fans rudely heckled Lee’s wife during the ALCS last year at Yankee Stadium?

In my opinion any attack on Lee’s mental makeup is just silly, and any comparison to LeBron not wanting to come to the Knicks is off as well.  In the case of LeBron you can say LeBron was wanting to avoid being the man as basketball is more of an individual sport than baseball.  Bron would have had the focus of the NY media on him every day as he would be playing every game.  Unlike LeBron, Lee would only pitch every 5 days while sharing the marquee with other Yankee players like Jeter, Robinson Cano, Alex Rodriguez and Mariano Rivera.  Keep in mind that for the past 2 seasons Lee has been a hired gun that has been thrown into the fire of stretch runs for teams making a push for the playoffs.  He also has been the #1 pitcher leading teams in the playoffs…

Postseason Pitching Statistics
SEASON G GS CG SHO IP H R ER HR BB SO W L SV HLD BLSV WHIP ERA
2009 5 5 2 0 40.1 27 10 7 0 6 33 4 0 0 0 0.82 1.56

Total 10 10 3 0 76.0 54 22 18 2 8 80 7 2 0 0 0.82 2.13

Sorry Yankee fans but these are not the numbers of some one scared to pitch on the big stage, LOL!  As a matter of fact Lee has done it in Yankee Stadium as an opposing pitcher, which is worse than playing for the home team.  Yankee fans will just have to get over it and realize Lee just likes Philly better; yes there are people out there not obsessed with NYC and being part of that scene.  It’s even coming out that Lee never wanted to leave Philly last season when he was traded.  If you want to question Lee’s intelligence, well that is a different story… LOL, who wants to live in PHILLY!  At the end of the day Yankee fans should applaud Lee for not just being about the money and coming to NY to cash checks.  It will truly be OK Yankee fans, you still have C.C. Sabathia…

Now as a Mets fan, I am the one that should be mad!!!!

WTF, now my squad which has no money to spend not only has to deal with Roy “Doc” Halladay but now in a 3 game series we could be facing Halladay, Lee, and Hamels/Oswalt!! Screw a Yankees fan, I am the one who should be crying, HAHA!!!

Militant Mondays – I can’t support Pres. Obama

As you all may know I have been a strong supporter of President Obama and his policies; Health Care Reform, Financial Reform, his stance on foreign affairs etc…. But now the president in my eyes has gone too far, I can’t lie I am VERY disappointed in the direction Obama wants to go in with his latest act. I guess there were going to be some issues that I would not agree with Obama but I am a little shocked by this one.

What’s scary is that I think I can finally understand where the far Left Southern contingent is coming from when they talk about Obama being dangerous. I just can’t figure out how I could have missed this glaring issue with the president. This is not the “Hope and Change” I voted for in 2008, here is a perfect opportunity for the president to stand up and send a strong message to those who support Evil Empires! Instead Obama will be inviting an Evil Empire to the White House to enjoy pleasantries that MY tax dollars pay for; SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!!!

So what could the president have done that was so bad that a strong supporter like myself would 2nd guess his actions?

There is only one thing Barack Obama could do that would shake my confidence in his ability to lead. That one action is the most unforgiving of all; having the hated New York Yankees at the White House to celebrate their World Series victory.

I know, it is tradition for the President to host the World Series Champs, but where is my “Hope and Change”? The president is Chicago White Sox fan and I would have expected better from him. It’s not so unreasonable to ask that the president not invite the Yankees aka “The Evil Empire” to the White House. The president showed his loyalties to the White Sox’s by wearing their hat on Opening Day when he threw the 1st pitch at the Washington Nationals game.

Photobucket

So where are his loyalties to the White Sox’s or all enemies of the Yankees? Where is the leadership to show the country we will not stand for the evil of the Yankees and their winning ways? By having the Yankees at the White House President Obama is basically validating the fakeness of Alex Rodriguez, the wild and crazy ways of Nick Swisher, and the demoralizing ways of Mariano Rivera as he continues to take the hearts of opposing hitters.

Arrrggghhh, I just hate the Yankees and everything about them. Maybe I can petition the president to sign an executive order to just dismantle the Yankees, hmmmm… Hey if we can have a Black President I can dream the Yankees would just go away, LOL!!!!

LET’S GO METS!!!
