But I wonder if DeGrom is going to put on a show for the Yankees? Hmmmm......






Dream on, you are not getting deGrom in this lifetime unless you are willing to give up Torres, Torryess, Frazier and Sheffield.


lol listen. We'll give you Ron, Clint, and Sheffield. deGrom is young enough.
Telling any met fan right now though, Torres stays a Yankee, don't like it then keep Jacob, and let him walk as a FA.
There are other good pitchers out there.

I am not against the Mets - despite what the fabulous Joe Beningo of WFAN insists is impossible - I wish the Mets well.
However I am grateful that starting in the 1950s my Dad taught me to be a Yankees’ fan. And as most loyal (Yankee) fans know one must endure disappointments and dark ages ( think losing to the Pirates in 1969 and to the Diamondbacks in 2001 (when after 9/11 it would have been so apt for NYC to have a champion) 2004 losing to the Red Sox after being up in games 3-0, and the late 1960s and late 1980s when we were an awful last place team.
But what can a Yankee fan say other then express words similar to the great Lou Gehrig did - we are fortunate, very fortunate. And this team and it’s young talent, wow!
All the best.

Not dreaming about deGrom on the Yanks at all. Do not want to give up what the Mets would want.

And why sit Gardy after the night he had last night? I don’t care if he is a lefty facing a lefty pitcher. He’s hot!

Well, I love Joe Beningo but my dad—an original NY baseball Giants fan even though from Brooklyn—always supported my ardor for the Yankees and when the Mets were born, we rooted fo them AND the Yankees.
Just the way it is.
In fact, there’s a novel around—an urban crime drama set in the South Bronx, pitting the NY Yankees against the NY Mets in the 7th Game of the 2016 World Series.
Some say that ‘game’ may still be going on...
It can happen.

Like I said in my earlier post, German has the potential to be a decent starter. Maybe not a star, but a decent fifth starter.

;)

Gen- I think you meant Pirates in 1960. :)
I still have a twitch from that series.

Yes, that is the first World Series I remember with real clarity. Remember listening to it in my friend's backyard on a small transistor radio. Real tough loss. The series that made Bill Mazeroski (in)famous in NY.

One of the worst days of my young life. My older cousin from Pittsburgh was staying with us in the Bronx and we listened to the game on the radio. He sent me a reminder 50 years later on the date.

:huh: As an avid Brooklyn Dodger fan I disliked the Yankees, however before my freshmen year at St.John's I was invited by the Yanks to spend the two months in the summer working out at the heraled stadium. They have always been a classy outfit, in fact the only team I tried out for that gave us lunch each day and the use of their uniform. Their locker room was special compared to the Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field. I can't believe I just wrote this about the hated Yankees.
