Full Disclosure, I am a HARDCORE Mets fan and I hate the Yanks aka the Skanks!
Once again it’s that time of the year in the baseball season; New York Mets vs New York Yankees!
Inter-league play started back in 1997 and for Mets fans, outside of the 2000 World Series and the 2006 playoff run, Mets’ fans have looked forward to the Subway Series.
And after all these years the Subway Series has lost its initial luster, but now we have the 2015 edition of the Subway Series!
For the first time the two teams will meet with both teams in 1st place, and both teams coming in on a high note.
The Mets are currently riding a 11-game winning streak and owning the best record in baseball (13-3). Their young squad with pitching studs Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, 2014 Gold-Glove center fielder Juan Lagares, rising star behind the plate Travis d’Arnaud (injured), and Lucas Duda are leading a revival in Queens. Of course we cannot forget about the ‘Captain’ David Wright who was looking like his old self before straining his hamstring.
The Yankees after a slow start, finished a strong road-trip going 7-3 and taking 2 out of 3 from the powerful Detroit Tigers. Working thru a transition from the golden age of the ‘Core 4’ (Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte), the Yanks veterans seem to be coming together with unlikely heroes in Alex Rodriguez and former Mets cast-off Chris Young. Jacob Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Mark Teixeira round out this experienced team. If they can live up to their impressive resumes they will be a tough team offensively.
This should be a great series, as a Mets fan I am beyond excited! Looking forward to seeing deGrom and Harvey cleanup the Bronx!!!!
HAHA, anyone that knows me knew I was going to at least take one shot at the Skanks!
Let’s Go Mets!!!!!!!!!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
