Mets v. Yankees is not a real rivalry now. Can we just accept that?

mets yankees

I would like address this issue. I love the New York Mets. For years, I’ve had Yankees fans approach me and say “The Yankees are better than the Mets.” Any mildly rational person would respond, “Well, yes, fine sir, they are”.

This whole Subway Series inter-league rivalry nonsense is just that – nonsense. Can we stop pretending it’s some epic battle between hated rivals? There hasn’t been any real juice since Piazza-Clemens. The Mets haven’t won a World Series in twenty-four years. Making comments about salary differentials is just sour grapes. Enough.

Even though the Mets took two out of three games this time from the Yankees, can anybody say that a team with Reyes, Wright, Beltran, Santana, and Bay is better than A-Rod, Jeter, Teixeira, Cano, and Posada, Sabathia, and Rivera? Am I pleased that Johan outpitched CC? Sure. Does that have any bearing on the overall alleged rivalry? Zero.

The Mets have spent more time discussing how to be near .500, while the Yankees are often pondering resting players to prepare themselves for the playoffs.

Can we just stop it already?

    I would like to add the fact that the Islanders and Rangers have not been a rivalry for years either….those pesky rangers just never both showing up.

    Baseball sucks….Baseball fans suck more……
