After the the last 3 yrs I’m believing a team of     275 hitters who put the ball in play, go the opposite way are the future. Old big remember when guys are risky, now Judge is great for how long? Next contract? Watched Kansas City dismantle the Soxs ,what a fun team to watch. ALL nobodies now.

His first year on the team he led the team in HR and RBI, splitting his time fairly evenly between DH and LF.

Well my memory isn’t terrible, for this year ( looking at avg. as you can see )

Does that describe the Ruth/Gehrig Yankees?

How about the DiMaggio Yankees?

The Maris/Berra Yankees?

The Reggie/Thurman/Nettles Yankees?

Maybe the Jeter/Tino/O'Neil Yankees?

lower batting averages are just like 95+ mph pitching. 90% of the leagues pitchers barely get looked at unless they are in the mid 90's. the game has changed every couple of decades. batters are evaluated more on getting on base and leveraged situations and velo. whether it is better or worse it changes over time. i like small ball and pitching (and Judge and Stanton HR's) rarely do you get a game that consist of this, especially from both teams. i was watching the Thurman Munson game after his death against the Orioles over the weekend. what a different game it was. so much to say, but who has the time. 

one thing from that game was crazy. Ken Singleton had a check swing. it was soooo much of a swing his whole bat went around and his body followed. check with 3rd base ump, calls it a ball. nobody said a thing.

Competition was really poor! In a direct quote from Ted he said pitchers threw 80-85, pitched 4 innings and hitters could swing logs in his day. (1986 in his lanai in Islamorada Fl. Over looking Florida bay. )

The competition may have been a little diluted during WWII, but I think both Reggie and O'Neil might have a few choice words for you if you were to insinuate that they only won because of weak competition.

they are Fizzler's. i hope they win. more of chance of a subway series. buck and the new owners are doing a great job, but still a legacy of Fizzling. we will see. second worse fans besides Boston. 

Granted, i agree Mets fans suck. But Yankee fans are close behind. Philly and the Sox have the worst fans. Cardinals have the classiest (while still being knowledgeable ) fans.

 

keep in mind, the past is done here, now the Mets do whatever they choose. They have a fan owner and the richest in baseball. Sounds familiar, if we’re thinking back 20 years, lol. Shoe is officially on the other foot in NY. Let’s see how this all works out over the next say, five years. Starting with Judge free agency and whomever else becomes available going forward.

i get it. i never said anything about the fans though. we will see. but since you mentioned it, front runners and band wagon fans are common in queens, i know it might be a new era with the ownership and spending, so i guess you guys should be taking back everything you have criticized the yankees for , for the past 50 years. no one like a hypocrite, and you are definitely not a hypocrite. money doesn't win championships, it wins playoff spots. i am glad for met's fans. more faith and a good team on the field. let's see how it goes in October.

Front runners are popular everywhere, including the Bronx. But well said up until the hypocritical  sentiment. Now that the roles are reversed it does taste sweet. That’s karma calling.

the yankees are still one of the best 4 teams in baseball. they were the best team until july 20th, for very good reason. injuries and poor starting pitching put them in a .500 slump. when you are still a .500 team and that's considered slumpimg, then i can live with that. the met's are on a tear since the break. maybe it will continue, but most likely not, no team can keep up that pace. they can easily lose a 2 to 1 game often, once their bats die a little. it's baseball and a long season. relish in the good times, i am very used to good times, but also know how it feels to lose a game 6 and 7 in the WS and playoff games when one bounce in the wrong direction changes a series. i think we can agree a subway series would be excellent!

I do have a wish to revisit the subway series. 2 things still burn me till this day. 

#1 Timo Perez watching, not running hard and scoring on Zelle’s ball. Typical bad Wilpon era “met” mistake. Timo played “tourist in the biggest WS he would ever see.

#2 Roger Clemens not being immediately escorted out of Yankee Stadium after throwing a piece of jagged wood at Mike Piazza, who owned him. Ridiculous decision by umps. Can never be justified.

 

those two things shaped the series, and sank the Mets, who were much better than the results of series would show.

Again, Bronx had Mattingly, Henderson, Winfeild and on and on. Mets outdrew them. Yanks didnt compete, fans didn’t come. Didn’t  expect to win. I would go to the stadium for good match ups. Cheap tix, 5 minutes before the game.

Should have been an instant ejection.  No way to justify what he did, or not ejecting him.

 

"I thought it was the ball!" --- Give me a ****ing break.

 

On a side note, remember that deep down inside he's just another filthy Red Sock, and it actually does kind of make sense.
