    h What's the feeling of the New York fans regarding the Mets situation? :dismay: -
    Very mixed bag. I personally think that the local Mets fans think about the Yanks way too often. That's because they keep running into us, since we both have the "NY" logo on our jerseys and t-shirts. Unlike the Dodgers and Giants of yore, we don't play in the same league. 6 games a season isn't exactly something I'd worry about too much.

    Some Yankee fans are ecstatic, since Mets fans have been trying to "own the city" after last season, when they took the Cards to Game 7 before Beltran was caught looking. Others are not, and some Yankee and Met fans are either married or dating. You won't find much of that in Beantown, since there's only one MLB team (like one NBA, NHL, NFL team).

    There are quite a few Mets fans I've grown up with (Brooklyn wouldn't be an unusual place to find Met fans), and Tom Seaver was the first baseball player I'd ever apreciated (not a bad example, I'd say). Anyway, after Maine's shiny gem this afternoon, they'll need to win the division, since the Padres are 1.5 ahead of them. In either case, there will be lots of disappointment in either Queens or Philly.

    I'd forgotten to add, John Maine went 7-2/3 of no-hit ball, the Mets had 19 hits. 13-0 game. We'll see if the Phillies lose. If the Phillies win, the Shea lockers get emptied out tonight.

      Joe's been favoring Joba and Veras lately, so a BLSV can't be unexpected. If Mo works tonight or Sunday (he's *GOTTA* work this weekend), he should be fine.

      I've found that the better pitchers recover quickly after a poor performance, and amongst starters, after a poor inning in the same game.

        What? No love for the finest in video smacky-poo? (sends SDL to the doghouse)

        If Beantown loses, I suggest you get used to the taste of Manhattan clam chowder. Not that "chowda" stuff you Beantowners enjoy.

        Better yet, some Navy Bean soup!

        I would've thought you'd feel as I do. I really want to go head-to-head against the Yankees for the American League Championship.
        Any other way would be anti-climatic, don't you think?
        We'll see. If Anaheim is in the playoffs, I'd rather not play them in the first round. I still say we could've taken them in 2005, but it rained when Randy Johnson pitched, and his back acted up, as the weather is much warmer in the desert (obviously).

        Anyway, if we win, it'll be either Boston for Round 4 or Anaheim for Round 3. In either case, if we face Anaheim, I'd rather face them in a 7-game series.

        If Boston, it'll be a truly nutty situation that's over-the-top. If anything could possibly top the last series at Fenway, this would be it. That was how a WS would end.

          I feel real bad for the Mets myself, I don't want to see them like this! I am not one of those Yankee fans who hate the Mets. Like Mattingly said it's had to hate a Team with a NY on their hat, growing up they where my NL team. I have been pulling for them through this, with the day Maine had today I hope it is a good sign.
          I am totally amazed of what has happened to the Mets!!! It is tottaly ureal! I have been watching their games and I am just shocked at what has happened, I hope things can change and they will turn it around.

          Now about the AL East Division! I could care less that the Sox won we are in the playoffs and we made it intersting at the end something I didn't think was
          going to happen in May. Well congrads to the Bosox and lets see how the playoffs go!!

          • Urban, there's a Season 2007 thread in the Mets forum if you'd like to post there. They seem willing to accept any support from other fans, so they're a pretty friendly group.

                Thank goodness, I am not bothered by that problem.

                I am not really a Mets fan, although I would root for them if they would face Boston in the WS, just like I did in 1986.

                      I`m mixed. I have some family and friends who are Mets fans but the majority of Mets fans that are constantly talking about how the Mets are so good are really annoying. I`m happy to see them go down personally

                        Don't you think that Mets fans have said the same about Yankee fans after 1996?

                          I just wish I'd saved the ad. After the 1996 WS, the Mets put out a full-page ad, I think in the NY Daily News, congratulating the Yanks on winning that season. After 1998, I think the sentiment was that someone had won a bit too often.

                          Still, I wouldn't mind seeing them in the WS once again. Of course, after trampling Beantown (and stealing away a month's supply of their chowda)! Now if we could only Anaheim in the first round, that would be a Royal Flush of a postseason, ending in Flushing, of course!

                                1. Boston wipes out the Angels of Angeles (not owned by Angelos),
                                2. Yanks sneak by the Tribe in 5 and get all their pitchers really tired,
                                3. See you in the ALCS!!!

                                Whaddya say?
