      Are you worried about this weekend? Both teams have gone 7-3 since the Bronx Bashing but the Sox seem to have found their hitting groove since then. Yanks hitting has been quiet.

      Good question – I’m going to start a post of this – thanks

      Nope, not worried. The Yanks are a good team. The Yanks will win at least 1 and probably 2 this weekend.

      I just want to say that I hope Reid Gorecki has a short, horrible career. (I was at Citi Field last night and almost got into a fight with his uncle lol)

      I have no idea who he is but, based on the fact that he’s a 28 year old rookie, the odds are certainly in your favor that he’ll have a short, horrible career.

      What happened? What did his uncle say/do?

      first off, you guys have been to yankees-red sox games before. You know the score when a sox fan comes into yankee stadium and starts being obnoxiously loud cheering for their players, they get booed/yelled at/heckled to no end till they sit down (at least by me). Now, I consider Braves-Mets to be the Mets’ version of Yankees-Sox. So I’d assume the same thing would happen when Braves fans start cheering on their team obnoxiously at Citi Field (almost typed Shea). Well, it didn’t. Not 1 Mets fan was even cheering their team in the section, let alone booing the braves. So, since I had not driven, I decided to have a few adult beverages before the game. So I took it upon myself to have fun and to keep getting on the Braves, and especially Reid Gorecki since he was being cheered the loudest. At that point, I had no idea he was a 28 year old rookie or that his family was sitting in front of me. I assumed he was some blue chip prospect in the Braves system, and thats why they knew him. So, during the game, the lady friend I was with started making fun of the uncle because he was wearing this rediculous orange plaid shirt and short combo. He must have heard this and started to get pissed as he looked at me when we were laughing. The next play Gorecki air mails a throw to home and it hits the net and the mets score a run. So that caused me to really get on him. The uncle got up and started yelling at me that if I booed his nephew one more time there was gonna be problems. To which I replied, so theres gonna be problems cause I’m in Citi Field and I’m gonna boo every brave, including Gorecki. I was in the bathroom for his next AB. But then he faced Wagner and Wagner struck him out, to which i started getting on him again. I was yellin for him to keep his bags packed at this point cause he’d be on the shuttle back to AAA. The uncle didn’t do a thing.

      I hate the braves.

      Serves you right for not ripping the Mets! Only joking….. Gorecki’s uncle should sod off. Yeah, you acted like a drunken lout BUT that’s part of the tradition in baseball. Even still Corey, it’s not worth getting into a fight over the Braves and Mets….the Red Sox and Yankees maybe? But los Mets….NAH! Whenever I go to a Mets game, I really don’t care who wins(cept a Yankees/Mets game) and will not waste a bit of breath on the team that plays at Shitti Field.

      I hear ya Mate, I was just joking around a bit. I remember a fight at a Yankee-Rangers game I went to in 1978. Both parties had consumed large amounts of adult beverages and it started because one of the guys wore a Rangers cap! They were cursing, laughing and then things started to escalate. I was like: “I came to see a game, not a prize fight.” I don’t why people just chill……

      I meant: I don’t know why people just don’t chill….

      That tends to go out the window when alcohol is consumed. Some idiot wanted to pick a fight with me in a Detroit bar, because he thought I was wearing a Red Sox cap. I was wondering what the f-ck he was talking about because the cap I was wearing was a Brooklyn Cyclones cap. Didn’t escalate too far, bouncers were right there. Besides, he shut up when shown that the cap was a Cyclones cap.

      speaking of the cyclones…one other funny note from my night in flushing, there was a vendor goin up and he was all smiles as the braves were winning and 1 met fan asked him what he was so happy about. He said that he was so excited to see the mets organization get its first championship since 1986. Puzzled, the fan said what do you mean? The vendor then said, the cyclones are going all the way this year! it must be pretty depressing to be a met fan lol
