The Times They Are A-Changin’

20 05 2007

Friday night was the first night of the Subway Series. For those of you who are baseball deficient (which are few, but I won’t go hatin’), The New York Mets and the New York Yankees play each other for two three-game series’ during the course of the MLB Season. This year’s Subway Series is particularly different for a couple of reasons.

1) In celebration of the Subway Series, the Empire State Building will change its colors. Starting on friday night, the tower was to have Yankee Blue and White on the North and South sides. The East and West sides of the tower was to have Metropolitan Blue and Orange. The winner of this month’s Subway Series will have their team colors shown on all four sides of the Empire State Building’s tower.

2) The Mets went into this year’s subway series with a 26-14 Record and a 1.5 Game lead in the National League East. The Yankees entered the Subway Series with an 18-21 Record and 9.5 Games behind the Boston Red Sox. Clearly, without debating on what league is better, the Mets have had the better season this far.

So, with these 2 tangibles entering the Subway Series, it was obvious that the Yankees were the team “on the ropes”. A Subway Series loss to the Mets might not mean much this early in the season, but it would add to an already dismal start to the Yankees’ 2007 Season.

With the series over, here is how it all went down:

Game 1: Mets 3, Yankees 2
– Mets are now 2 Games ahead of Atlanta and alone 1st Place in the NL East
– Yankees are now 10 Games behind Boston and are tied for 2nd in the AL East

Game 2: Mets 10, Yankees 7
– Mets are now 2.5 Games ahead of Atlanta for 1st Place in the NL East
– Yankees are now 10.5 Games behind Boston and alone in 4th Place in the AL East

Game 3: Yankees 6, Mets 2
– Mets are now 2.5 Games ahead of Atlanta for 1st Place in the NL East
– Yankees are now 10.5 Games behind Boston and tied for 3rd Place in the AL East

Ah, Bob Costas. The man who does not check local vernacular before spouting questionable words on international television. I see things don’t change with him.
