Giants vs Tigers - who is a Met fan supposed to root for?
Traditionally speaking BMF generally stays within “party lines” and will root for the NL team in the Fall Classic.
This year is no different, I guess. Logically I want the NL to win. Personally I would be happy for Pagan if he were to earn a ring.
The flip side though is I’ve always liked the Tigers for a couple of reasons. 1st I have relatives in Michigan so I’ve always had a soft spot for the Tigers and Lions.
I also always like to see the old skool teams succeed. For instance I’d take a Tigers championship over a Tampa Bay Rays championship everyday of the week. The Tigers have been so crappy for so long they deserve a ring.
The City of Detroit and Michigan at large have suffered so much recently they deserve some success outside of hockey.
The Giants just won too. So while I guess I’m rooting for San Fran I wouldn’t be upset to see the Tigers take it all.

Someone is going to face the Tigers in the WS. It certainly won’t be our beloved Mets but we’ll have an ex-Met in there no matter who wins game 7.
So teams aside. Who would you rather see go to the World Series. Carlos Beltran or Angel Pagan?
I loved Angel when he was doing his thing but Beltran has been doing it so BIG in the postseason for so many years I gotta believe he deserves a Fall Classic appearance more.
So Go Cardinals… I guess.

How great was that? A clean sweep and the Yankee season ends with an elimination game ass-kicking. These mutts never even led the ENTIRE SERIES.
Wow how the mighty Yankees have fallen. Once known as postseason monsters they barely got past Baltimore before getting their asses handed to them by the Tigers.
And they really think they’re gonna be able to trade A-Rod? GTF outta here. No ones gonna take that salary - no way, no how.

Even though the yanks got rained out A-Rod took another loss as he got benched… Again.
Lineups had already been posted by the time the umps called the game so even though the Yankees didn’t lose on Wed A-Rod still did.
In fact he was a 2 time loser as the media discovered who the woman was that he was flirting with in the stands and plastered her photos all over their publications.
In all fairness if A-Rod is bagging the Austrailian bikini model that’s a Huge win. She’s a real stunner but the way this unfolded merely draws more attention to his pathetic performance.
Imagine if he were Micky Mantle, or even Keith Hernandez picking up models mid-game from the on-deck circle. He’d be a NY Legend. Joe Namath style.
But instead it’s just another reason for everyone to kill the poor bastard even more than they already do.
Yankee problems, and BMF couldn’t enjoy it more lol

I won’t jinx us by finishing the above sentence but it sure did feel good to watch the yankees go down 3-0 in their series with Detroit.
Quite frankly I was shocked to see A-Rod benched again in game 3. I know he doesn’t deserve to play but it’s still shocking to see their 30M contract riding the pine.
And to think they have FIVE more years of this, it’s enough to make a Met fan giddy with glee.

There’s a whole slew of tasty tidbits for Yankee haters like myself to feast on these days: A-Rod’s collapse, the inability to win a game after scoring 4 in the 9th , Jeter falling down and out of the post season, the evaporation of the yankee mystique to name a few.
But BMF’s favorite tasty anti-yankee bit is the 8-10K seats that are empty on a nightly basis this October.
My logic is if they announce 47K tickets sold that prob means 43-44, which means there may be as many as 10K empty seats in the ALCS.
Wow talk about a “fanbase” that’s been spoiled rotten. These loser Yankee fans can’t even sell out a playoff game? The very fact that theories such as “week nite game” or “weather” are floating around as excuses is a VERY BAD sign re: Yankee fan apathy.
But this goes to prove BMF’s long held theory that far and away most Yankee fans are bandwagon jumpers.
Watching Detroit take a Commanding 2-0 lead in the series is a pure joy.
At this point I’m rooting for a Tigers v Cardinals WS. I know I’m supposed to hate the Cards but LaRussa’s gone and Beltran deserves to win a ring.
