    Though i do think that you have to be a fan of one, i know that my best friend is both a yankee and a met fan.

    Now someone who is both a yankee and a red sox fan thats absurd.

    It matters the situtation in Chicago I do not see it happening because there is a huge difference bewteen Cub and White Sox fans in the socio-economic sense in Chicago. In NY and LA the differences are just based on geography

    Who's saying that you can't?

    If you don't like both the Mets and Yankess you are not a true baseball fan? :noidea

    Funny how the Yanks have stopped winning World Series since they started buying up every slugger they could get to sign on the dotted line.
    The Yanks look lost now.
    Just look at Nick Johnson, tearing it up in Washington.
    They are still searching for a 1B.
    Giambi will DH.
    The biggest mistake ever: YOU TRADED AWAY NICK JOHNSON!

    Delgado and Lo Duca have yet to play a single game for the Mets, you can't use them as an example for the Mets not winning.

    I seriously don't care.

    Don't like em.

    Mets always get a big name(see Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, Paul Loduca) and they NEver win anything.

    As for the Yanks, a salary cap would knock them out!


    Who's for the salary cap?
    Competition is good.

    I hope a moderator won't move this thread to the Yankee's or Mets' section because I think it is more of a general baseball question -- especially because it is centered in one of baseball's bastions.

    Before I started graduate school I was a reporter and sat right next to an editor who was a die-hard Yankee fan. Between yelling at each other over stories and other assorted nonsense, we occasionally talked baseball. He held the firm assertion that a person can not be a fan of both the Mets and Yankees.

    I disagree. Coming from New York, I grew up a Mets' fan but I grew to appreciate and even like the Yankees. To my editor this was blasphemy.

    What do you think? Can a person be Mets' and Yankee's fan at the same time?
