(Typical Mets front office meeting)
I know I just linked earlier to the story on LoHud about all the "ho-hum"-ness to the Subway Series, and in a way I probably contributed to the seemingly worldwide apathy with my half-assed comment about it being a bummer. But I can't just sit by as a diehard Yankee fan and Top 5 Internet Personality and allow myself to stoop to that level. And not only that, I can't let Yankeeland and the rest of the baseball world stoop that low either.
I've massaged and tweaked and refined and matured this blog from a collection of uninformed nonsense to a pretty damn respectable source for Yankee news and insight over the last couple years. But the last time I checked, the banner at the top of the page still read "rabid Yankee homerism," and it's been a hot minute since I've dished out a big dose of that. So this time, I'm not bringing any fancy sabermetrics or well-thought out logic. I'm taking the gloves off, sticking a roll of quarters in my fist, and I'm coming out swinging. Because this series this weekend does matter. There is a perfectly good reason why this Subway Series matters, and you have to be pretty damn stupid to not realize it.
