The Mets and the Yankees are both good teams with holes. This question just came up in the newsroom: If they agreed to combine rosters and just play the postseason as "New York," would they win the World Series. 5 min poll
I mean, what the hell are we talking about here? The New York Yankees currently have the best record in baseball and the New York Mets are a 4th place team, in a softer-than-baby-shit division. I’ll be honest, I don’t track the Mets that close and with all the playoff talk on Twitter from their loser fans, I assumed they were at a minimum in 3rd place.
Are there players on the Mets that we would want on the Yankees? Of course, but the Mets aren’t even the first 4th place team I would raid. With the Angels in 4th place, you always take Mike Trout.
Andy Martino’s twitter bio features a quote from a reader of his, which says: “He may have relevant baseball news, but as a human being he’s an embarrassment.” Now he doesn’t even have the baseball news. He’s just an embarrassment for trying to lump that amateur organization in Queens that has happened to go on a hot streak, THAT WILL END, with a team that has overcome approximately 10,000 injuries to represent the greatest organization on earth.
The Mets are not a good team with holes. The Mets are a hole; a blackhole that their fan base falls into every time they make a push when its already too late for them.
