Yanks sweep Mets at Citi.

Yuck. An all too familiar story: Mets outhit the opposition, but bring in fewer runs. History is made: Mariano Rivera gets his 500th save and his first-ever in the majors RBI, and Chien-Ming Wang his first win since George W. Bush was in the White House.

Hard to believe, but the Mets, now at .500, are still a viable post-season proposition. Nevertheless, I'm going to sulk for a while.

Cheery update: As this Brooklyn Paper story tells, my beloved Brooklyn Cyclones are off to a good start, and Mets starter Oliver Perez had an impressive rehab performance with the 'Clones at Keyspan Park yesterday.

@Twif: Thanks. At least your team has a perfect record against the Bronx Bullies going into the all-star break.


  1. Me too. Scheduled for a July 4th family gathering with a backyard full of front-running Yankee slugs.

    Better be a reversal of fortunes by then or I'm stayin' home.

    Been corresponding with a Brooklyn native who became a very successful Hollywood director. His first film, Blast of Silence, was filmed on the streets of New York and climaxes in an abandoned fishing village in the marshes of Jamaica Bay. Folks who've seen the film refuse to believe that it's Brooklyn.

    Might be an interesting blog topic.

  2. given i hate the yankees more than the mets, i suppose i feel your pain. slightly.

  3. @ Joseph: thanks for the info re "Blast of Silence". I'll check it out.
