I have decidedly mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I really don't want the Yankees having a feel-good game going into their weekend series with the Mets.

On the other hand, LOL Braves.
 
2006-06-28 05:22:05 PM
Crap!!! I was hoping the Braves could do at least one thing right. They did originate in Boston and could have put the Stankees a couple of games behind the Sox. Guess the Sox will just have to beat the crap out of the Mets and send them back to NY mad

Not a bad way to end a game.

The Braves suck so bad this year, I miss Leo Mazzone!

It's okay though, once the All-Star break hits, the Mets will begin their yearly demise.
 
2006-06-28 05:24:58 PM
Wow--that moves them to only 8.5 games behind the Detroit Tigers!
 
2006-06-28 05:26:33 PM
A-rod needed to come up with a clutch performance like that, if only to prove to the home fans that he can come up big.

They came up with this really cool idea called "playoffs" . . . in 1969!

You know what would astonish me, a pro-Yankees headline being greenlighted on Fark.

They were booing his ass all day today, Yankee fans are extremely fickle, they'll forget this as soon as he farks up in the next game.

Have you seen the Mets July schedule? After a brutal May and June that the Mets passed with flying colors (including a stretch that ends Sunday where they played 19 of 26 on the road), the Mets July is incredibly light:

Six games against the Cubs
Four games against Pittsburgh
Four games against the Marlins
Four games against Houston
Three games against the Braves

13-9 Home/Road split with lots of off days. I can't wait for July to come.

Jmast7: Four games against the Marlins

What's your point? The Mets will be playing 4 games against the hottest team in the NL.
 
2006-06-28 05:37:32 PM
At home. And they're bound to cool off sometime, why not at Shea? Besides they have four games against Pittsburgh before that to warm up.
 
2006-06-28 05:38:14 PM
Since when does the American League play against the National League outside of the World Series? Why haven't I heard anything about this change?

a little bold to assume that will be the case three weeks from now.

Actually that's NEXT week, right before the break - the AS game's a bit late this year.

I haven't seen their schedule, to tell the truth, I'm not a big baseball fan, I used to be a HUGE Braves fan until the league went on strike 3 days before I was to go to Atlanta to see a home weekend series. I barely cared when they won the whole thing the next year, but its starting to win me back.

That said, my girlfriend is a huge Mets fan and everytime we talk about the Mets her first reaction is "Wake me when it's August and we're not on a 15 game losing streak". I only threw that out there because I know they always have a shiatty second half.

It's nice to see the Mets doing good for a change, that schedule does look pretty easy, hopefully they can keep the train rolling because I am so goddamn sick of the Yankees, it's great picking up the Post or News and not seeing Derek Jeter on the back bage.

Although I do love the October specials with all of them looking all sullen because they blew it again, can't wait for this year's editions.

I distinctly remember the last I actually rooted for the Yankees in a game: When they beat the Braves in the 2006 World Series. My own personal preference of baseball teams is:

Giants > A's > every other team not otherwise mentioned here > Yankees > Dodgers > Braves

Once again, the Braves biatch-slap themselves out of a win.

As much as I hate them and their fans, the Yankees will probably make the playoffs this year. 3

Steinbrenner will emerge from his cave, threaten a few people's jobs, Torre's future will be in question, and the Yankees will make a late season sprint to make it to the post season somehow justifying their inflated salaries.
Then everyone and their mother in the metro area will get 'Yankee Fever' and all start doing their worst impressions of that 'Aaaand thaaaa yankeeees wiin' guy , it'll be over before anyone knows it and suddenly everyone's brand new Yankee caps will be lost in the closet until next September.

I work with a ton of Yankee "Fans", they drive me friggin nuts if you cannot tell.
 
2006-06-28 05:45:33 PM
Gotcha onecan.

Y'know ordinarilly I'd be kinda worried too. But this Mets team is so much better than any I've seen since '86, I really don't see them faltering much given their lead, especially the way the Braves and Phillies are playing lately. The Mets are 5-5 in this current stretch, but the schedule's been brutal to them.

The Marlins have a good young team to be sure (and they've been unlucky since their run differential says they should be about .500). But I can't see all the rookies they have sustaining their recent success over the course of the season (not to mention making up a 12 game deficit in the standings). :)
 
2006-06-28 05:46:52 PM
yankees are in a fight for their lives from now until the end of the season. the division is VERY MUCH in question (red sox look freaking stacked), and they can't count on the wild card.

What haplo said. It's nice to see Mike Jacobs doing well after a slow start. He's a really good guy and I hope he has a great career.

i'm sorry to hear that you have to deal w/ them on a regular basis. there's nothing i hate more than a yankees fan

i would tend to agree with what you said...but my dad reads fark and it'll piss him off to no end that i said boston would win the division (hi dad). also, i'm aware that the tigers stand a good chance of blowing it all and missing the playoffs (one injury/slump etc.) but i'd like to see it last as long as possible
 
2006-06-28 05:48:28 PM
Jmast7: (not to mention making up a 12 game deficit in the standings)

Don't need 12 games. I think the fish are like 6 out of the wild card.

haplo53: I really like some of the rookies the fish have.

So do a lot of other teams. That's when Loria will make this payroll (roughly 14mil) even lower.
 
2006-06-28 05:53:54 PM
And Christ, the Yankees are pretty much playing their Columbus lineup. They are decimated by injuries, and they're still in the hunt. With all these injuries, they may be dipping down to AA.
 
2006-06-28 05:57:07 PM
... Hope the Yankees fans enjoy these Pay-Rod homers against the cellar-dwellers and the other homers when the game is 11-1 in the 8th inning.

But can ANYONE remember a late season game against a contender, or playoff game, where he made the difference? You can't -- because IT HASN'T HAPPENED. Pay-Rod is the most overrated player in baseball. The Yankees deserve him.

hey, he puts up the numbers. he just terrible in the clutch.. which to me makes him shiatty. but you cannot discount his worth during the regular season.

well the numbers contribute to the win column which gets ya into the post-season. but i don't disagree with you. he's a fekking bum.

As proven by my team, the Braves, over the past 15 years, just getting into the post season doesnt even mean a damn thing!

Wow, an $84 million payroll for the starting 9 alone is "pretty much their Columbus lineup"? That's one hell of a AAA ball club.

And it wouldn't have been considered that clutch without Homering Giambi Hormone in the lineup.
