For teams like the Mets, we know they CAN be competitive. Talent is clearly an issue, but the bottom line is they need to execute. And they need to execute in the 2nd half, and when they have the chance to put the foot on the neck of the competition.
My freshman roommate, Ted, who is a big-time Phillies fan, texted me this morning:
Ted: The ALCS starts tonight?
Me: Yep. Crazy, right? But Yanks deserve to NOT work. I hope it's not
Ted: I agree. Although, I must admit, I've disliked Yankee teams in the
past more than this team.
Translation for some reason I don't totally hate this Yankee team
I don't think they are as good and for some reason that's endearing
Like PH for a-rod and winning because of it, benching arod and his
replacement gets a key RBI...Raul...and I finally realized how good
Jeter really is...
I like these things...what's wrong with me
Me: Oh, I agree with all you just said, but that doesn't change the fact
I think that franchise needs to feel disappointment more
Me: I think those fans should feel what the National fans felt last
night, you know.
Ted: Go tigers, I'm just saying if the yanks do win...it won't upset me
Me: You don't live in New York. "Tings ah back to noormool."
If they win, they will say.
With Competitive Balance the way it is, I don't think they should
come out on top this year, though if they do, they will probably
have earned it.
Here's the Random Song of the Day.
LET'S. GO. METS.
