I swear there is NOTHING BMF HATES MORE THAN LOSING TO THE YANKEES. It makes me friggin’ crazy and I’m realizing I really have to do a better job of separating my baseball emotions from the rest of my life.
I was really deflated when Dickey didn’t have his 1-Hitter stuff tonite. It would’ve been so great to see him spin another masterpiece vs the Yanks on Sun Nite Baseball.
But the knuckler wasn’t dancing like it usually does and when they surged to a 5-1 lead I just started shaking my head thinking typical Mets - losing another rubber game to the yanks. I swear I’d be shocked if we’ve won more than 2 rubber games against them.
I’ve come to hate these Subway Series. If we don’t get swept we normally win the Fri nite game to get our hopes up and then drop the next 2. The way I recall, if we win the series we do it by taking the 1st 2 and losing on Sun nite baseball thus leaving us with a bad taste in our mouths despite the series win.
I hear next year its down to just 4 games total played on consecutive days 2 in The BX and 2 in Queens. The good news is we can’t lose 5 or more times to them in 1 season. The bad news is they can now put a 4 game sweep on us.
Watching Swisher play is nauseating. His smirky grins and smiles rounding the bases and making catches is enough to make me puke.
When Nieuwey struck out with two out, bases loaded in the freshly tied game I knew that was prob it for us. We had them on the ropes and we couldn’t deliver the knock out. In my heart I knew we weren’t gonna win the game after we had all those go-ahead ducks on the pond and failed to take the lead.
It’s tough to complain when you’ve just scored 4 runs with 2 out in the inning but I’m just sayin’…
