I admit the Mets sweeping the Yankees bugged me and my hat's off to them for doing it but GOOD LORD some of the stupidity I've heard out of some Mets fans in the past 14hrs. Really.....you'd rather have a sweep of the Yankees instead of a championship.....REALLY?

Now I see why Knicks fans are laughed at. Some of the same stupidity is apparent in Mets fans. No winning mentality there.

Anthony Bosch, the man behind the Biogenesis Clinic has apparently agreed to cooperate with MLB and they are looking to throw suspensions at the 20 some odd players linked to the clinic including A-Rod and Ryan Braun.

This is going to be interesting.....

If A-Rod does indeed get suspended, then my prediction from way back before the season started will hold true, which is that he will not play one game this season.

The Mets and Marlins are tied at 1-1 in the top of the 20th.

They both STINK.

18 inning game in Toronto and it's not even the longest of the day. Can't imagine that has before.

Of course it was, but it wasnt even June 1st when you made your attendance claim. Not exactly a big sample size to go on thus far since most teams have played barely 25 home games at this point with less than ideal weather in most of the country for the majority of them, and kids are still in school in most of the country, etc. Baseball attendance always picks up after Memorial Day. Save the "sky is falling" predictions if its still down come September.

I'm not making any claim that sportswriters aren't making all over baseball. Beat writers from NY, Boston and LA are all saying it. I'm just repeating it.

Sports writers are generally idiots who rarely deal with facts. There's no reason to parrot them.

that's pretty much the same face I make while reading most of the drivel the big national sportswriters vomit on to the page on a daily basis.

I said the same thing. I hope he gets suspended. It's not like the Yankees need him.

Part of me feels bad because growing up, he was my favorite player, and despite being born and raised in NY, I was never a Yankees fan until he showed up. Its been so rough watching his fall from grace in the past 10 years. He's gone from being the best in the game to only being known for when he F's up, which is very frequent.

Not many NYY fans would admit to that.

Yeah, I've been very open about my feelings for the team. I remember hating when they won in 96 because that was really the first year that I was consciously aware of what was happening in the sport, and since I was an A-Rod fan, I was a Mariners fan. I remember being upset when he left in 2000, but after seeing what he did in Texas, I became a Rangers fan, which was terrible because they were terrible. But when the Yankees got him, I flipped out because it meant I could finally see him play on a daily basis. I was an A-Rod fan more than anything.

I did start rooting for the team more in 2000 because I hated the Mets, and in 2001 because of 9/11, and in 2003 because of that Red Sox series. But it wasn't until A-Rod's arrival that I became a full time fan.

I was excited for the A-Rod trade at first but then the slap play happened and I was like "Seriously, bro?" Slowly, the more and more I saw of the guy I hated what I was seeing, his on the field production be damned. It got to the point where I was only rooting for him when it helped the team. Now I hope he never comes back. It's only going to hurt the clubhouse.

Yeah I think Stephen A said it best when the recent steroid allegations came out, which is that he wasn't upset that A-Rod was using it, but rather that it didn't work. As much as I hate to say it, I think its best if he just fades away like Bonds and Clemens did, except without all of the court drama.

Mets fans (and players to an extent) are irate at Bob Costas for his comments yesterday during the US Open regarding the Mets walk off win over the Cubs.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


I know the Mets are awful and I usually like Costas but he is being a major pretentious D-Bag here.

Yeah, that was really obnoxious. It's no different than any other team's celebration of a walk-off win during the regular season. I'm disappointed he resorted to this since I generally like his commentary on baseball and admire his passion for the game.

People are starting to pile on him now. I totally forgot about the gun control thing on Sunday Night Football months ago. Now folks are bringing that up again....

Lol, this thread is quite the beehive of activity.....

Is there anybody out there......?

So Costas ended up apologizing to the Mets privately with a call. My opinion....? Since he took a cheap shot at them in public, then he should apologize to them in public.

The MLB threads have been quiet the last few years. They were always very active when I was constantly spitting venom. My team sucks and I've been more focused on other things.
