@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.

Ryne Sandberg and Shake Shack Are Cool Again

Over Mother’s Day Weekend Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg claimed he had a case of food poisoning after eating an undercooked burger from Shake Shack at Citi Field (home of the Mets).

NY Mets first-baseman Lucas Duda also claimed he came down with food poisoning from eating Shake Shack.  it was initially reported Duda ate from the Shake Shack at Citi Field but it was later reported he actually ate from a different Shake Shack.

For Mets fans Shake Shack is just about the best thing going for the Mets right now outside of pre/post game drinks at McFaddens with my favorite bartenders.  Mets fans can handle the disappoint of the Mets but say it ain’t so about Shake Shack!!!

The NY Mets and Shake Shack quickly denied it was their burgers that caused Sandberg’s illness.

“We’ve served thousands of guests at our Citi Field Shack over the past week, and this is the first we’ve heard of any issue whatsoever,”

“We take every guest concern of any sort seriously, and as such reached out to Ryne Sandberg to get more information since we have not heard from him. We stand by our food quality 100 percent.” – Shake Shack spokesman Greg Waters

As of this morning it looks Sandberg and Shake Shack were able to talk it out as Shake Shack’s Twitter account sent out the following pic

Good job by Shake Shack to work this out with Sandberg, not sure what Mets fans would have done if they could not rely on Shake Shack.
