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.

Mex: “Yeah I really fell asleep there”

Pleeeeeeze Baltimore, pleeeeeeze beat and eliminate the Yankees.
They should’ve already won this series.
How about a offensive outburst from the Birds to shock everyone by blowing the yankees out of the playoffs and into A-Rod turmoil this off-season.

The incredible luck the yankees seem to get year after year is astounding to me. I won’t call it karma because the Yankees with their non-stop mega payroll that allows them to play by their own set of rules cannot possibly earn good karma.
Perhaps instead they’ve made a deal with the Devil.
Either way it’s mind blowing to see yet another incredible comeback delivered by a spare part player in Raul Ibanez.
A-Rod is his typical post-season self, batting .083. Girardi keeps him in the 3 hole but decides to PH for him in the 9th. Lo and behold Ibanez homers to tie the game and does it again in the 12th to win it.
Aaron Bleepin’ Boone all over again.
As a Met fan I’m disgusted.
The O’s we’re so close to taking the lead in the series and yet again a team crumbles at the very last moment to the Yankees.
I’m convinced a large percentage of these last second wins are a result of opposing players being psyched out by the NY Yankees legacy.
It’s enough to make a Met fan puke.

A postseason without the Mets means we have to pick a team or teams to root for to make our October interesting. Luckily we Met fans have a lot of practice in this so here are BMF’s thoughts on the horses in the 2012 postseason:
Yankees - F-them. Would never root for them under any circumstances.
Orioles - I love the idea of Baltimore finally rising up to challenge the yanks and Sox but I don’t think they’ve got what it takes to win this 5 game series. Although Showalter gives them a puncher’s chance.
Detroit - I like the Tigers. Got relatives in Michigan and I respect their team. Plus I think they can beat the yanks.
A’s - I want to root for the A’s but we all know they ain’t winning a post season series so why waste energy on them?
Reds - I’m always happy to see old skool teams in the postseason. I have no allegiance to Cincy so I’m not rooting for them but they don’t piss me off at all and they deserve some success after sucking for so long.
Giants - Some will say I’m supposed to hate the Giants for leaving NY a half a century ago but I don’t buy into it. I sorta like SF’s team so I can live with them.
Cardinals - Forget them too. No love for St Loo. Great baseball town I’m sure but BMF don’t live there.
Nats - Theoretically I’m supposed to consider them a division rival but we’ve never battled them for anything other than last place. I respect what they’ve done ( built a winner) because it’s something we can’t manage to do and their continued success only makes the Wilpons look like bigger Tools.
So I guess I’m rooting for a National v Tiger World Series.
Although I’ll pretty much always root for the NL I’m not sure I want to see the Nats as reigning champs.
I’m just sayin’

Did one of the NFL Replacement Refs sneak into the NL WC game last nite? Because that infield fly ruling was on par with the football calls we’ve seen lately.
It’s a disgrace to have an MLB game be altered due to an inicdent like that.
If the Mets lost on that sort of play my head would explode but I’m finding it impossible to have any sympathy for the Braves. And I sorta find it amusing that’s the note Chipper’s career ends on.
Am I a bitter Met fan?
Damn right I am.
Here’s hoping Buck Showalter can will his O’s to defeat the Yankees

Well at least that’s done.
Another debacle of a season is in the books and now we can begin the well work Met fan tradition of hoping next year will be better.
Unfortunately there doesn’t look like there’s any payroll flexibility so it may be hard to improve, but we’ll leave that for the rest of the winter.
So here we face another October with the Yankees and Yankee fans in the postseason while we hope RA will win the Cy Young … Which he prob won’t just for the simple fact that he’s a Met and stuff never goes right for us.
