Mets fans, why do you continue to do this? Why are you trying to make this a “thing”? Why must we keep having this discussion?
The New York Yankees want nothing to do with you. Their success does not affect yours. Their failures don’t, either. The Subway Series is supposed to be a “fun” gathering six times per year with those contests not affecting either team in the grand scheme of things — unless, of course, somebody misses the playoffs by a game or two.
Chanting “Yankees Suck” while the Bombers are visiting Citi Field? Fine. That’s fun. But … you guys actually suck? So once again, we don’t get it.
Chanting “Yankees Suck” in unison with Red Sox fans at Fenway Park? Perhaps it’s time to hit therapy and dig deeper to see what’s the root cause of such unnecessary behavior.
Oh, but it gets worse. Rooting for your team to lose in Boston so the Yankees slide in the AL Wild Card standings?
Perhaps it’s time to slip into that strait jacket and check in to an institution for a little while.
Mets fans rooting against their team in hopes of the Yankees failing is pathetic.
Don’t worry, Mets fans. Nobody was expecting you to do anything of note in Boston. You took all that momentum from your victory on Sunday Night Baseball and … have lost six of your last seven. Brilliant. That’s a winning franchise for sure. Steven Cohen can certainly undo decades of ineptitude, choking and malfeasance. Oh wait … nope! He can’t.
The Mets, who were once three games out of the NL Wild Card picture — remember, after crowning themselves the kings of New York when they were leading the division with a 43-37 record in July! — are now 8.5 out and seven back of the NL East lead.
And Red Sox fans don’t even seem to care about your “Yankees Suck” chants. The Seven Line Army seems like that group of guys in high school who thought they were cool but got thrown out of every house party by their underpants.
So, again, we simply ask, “Why?” Not because it bothers us. Not because we believe that energy is actually affecting our destiny. Solely because it’s embarrassing. The Yankees don’t even think about you. A non-contender in the National League is the least of their worries.
And what does this say about you? The Yankees have truly sucked since 2010. Yet they’ve made the playoffs eight times over that span and you’ve made it … twice. They have 27 postseason wins over that span and you have … eight.
2021 was supposed to be your year with a new owner and a revitalized roster of high-priced free agents … but all that $14 billion got you was James McCann, a bloated Francisco Lindor contract, and a bunch of short-term deals that are likely to flame out.
Who really sucks here?
