No Repeat

As the Mets advance by clinching their division title with a squad more than eager to see October, it makes it difficult to consider the inevitable. Who really wants to see a repeat of the 2000 World Series? New Yorkers and the Tri-State demographic. Not to say that the Mets will easily be rocked by the Yanks, they do have some incredible pitchers.

And they do have power, but nothing like the Yankee ballclub. There is no doubt a few line-up changes and carefully selected starting pitchers will bring the Mets more opportunities. A big part of me would be satisfied if the Mets won the Series this year. It would be exactly 20 years since they last did. Then all the fans at Shea can tear the grass off the field again, winning bragging rights and their third respective championship.
