      Wow. The Mets really stink. I still can’t believe we got swept by that pitiful team.

      This ain’t football.
      It ain’t basketball.

      This is Major League Baseball, and strange shiite happens.

      For instance, the Red Sox lost 3 of 4 to the lousy Twins. At home.
      The Tigers lost 3 straight to the Angels when the Angels were 4-10.
      The Rangers lost 2 in a row to the Twins, and followed that up by losing 2 of 3 to the White Sox.
      The Reds won 6 in a row, stopped to lose 2 of 3 to a miserable Phillies team, then won 5 more in a row.

      All these teams sure look better than the Yankees do so far. But strange stuff happens.

      ==========================================
      Of course, if the Yanks miss the playoffs by a game or two, then yeah, you can lament getting swept by the Mets.

      That’s why, as a level thinking fan, it’s best to subscribe to the 60-60 Rule…as in most teams, no matter how good or bad, are going to win 60 games and lose 60 games in a 162 game season.

      So in a six month grind, you’re going to have your games that you lost that you shouldn’t, just as you have your games you win you probably didn’t deserve.

      Like today’s with Phelps vs. Felix, for example.

      Actually I think that game went according to plan. Felix was outstanding and limited us to one run. We beat the M’s because our bullpen is superior to theirs and because our offense is just a tiny cookie crumb better than theirs.

      I wouldn’t say I ever expect to beat King Felix when he’s starting but it’s not like we got lucky yesterday. We scratched out the winning run late in the game, after Felix was done dominating us.

      @ MJ Recanati:
      The Mariners were likely favored in the game because they’re at home, and because of the pitching matchup.

      In truth, they should be favored in that matchup against this Yankee lineup. In that sense, the Yanks got lucky.

      @ Evan3457:
      OK, I’ll buy that, based on the homefield.
