The last 2 days were sorta like the anthesis of the Yanks and Phils meeting in the WS. On consecutive days us bitter Met fans were able to enjoy both of our most hates rivals die a depressing game 5 first round loss.
First the yanks go down with A-Rod striking out and then Philly is eliminated with Ryan Howard at the dish.
The Howard AB was one of the most bizarre I’ve ever seen with the Cardinals celebrating a trip to the NLCS with Howard crumpled to the ground with a ruptured achilles.
I feel bad for Howard, who now won’t be ready by spring training, but can’t say I feel one ounce of compassion for Rollins and the rest of the crew.
