Mets fans are gloating tonight and they have every right to do so after defeating the Yankees in four straight games to earn bragging rights for the 2013 Subway Series.
Yankee fans are like schoolyard bullies. They have all the power and constantly love to remind Mets fans of that fact. Any chance they have to kick their weaker neighbors they take. Prior to the start of this week's Subway Series Yankee fans were tweeting how much the Mets Suck and how the Yankees will kick their butts, etc. Now that the opposite has happened, the excuses are coming fast and furious.....it's only the Yankees B team, all our regular players are hurt, you'll be playing golf in October while we're in the playoffs.
While the aging stars on the Yankees have gone down like bowling pins, the club has brought in a rag tag bunch of throw aways, rookies, journeymen and players off the scrap heap to fill in. Surprisingly this group has outperformed expectations and Yankee fans, in typical fashion, just assume it's their god given right to win their division every year. Time will tell, but this four game sweep by the Mets may signal the clock striking midnight and this rag tag bunch turning back in to the replacement players they are.
