With heat advisories posted in the city, it was 94 degrees when the Mets started against Baltimore on Wednesday night, and that meant a nice savings for fans.
Just before 8 a.m Craig took a call from a Mets fan named Gordie, who wanted to predict a sweep for his team over the Yankees and take a shot at the Stadium in the Bronx in the process.
With Boomer in Kentucky shooting things, Craig was flyin’ solo in the Allstate Studio — and he was not happy.
Craig was shocked (but not awed) to learn that there are still a lot of tickets available for this weekend’s upcoming Subway Series between the Yankees & Mets in Flushing.
Before Jerry Recco could even get started, Craig interrupted the esteemed update anchor to share some R.A. Dickey themed tweets he received from a few loyal listeners.
What the Mets really need is a new arm or two out there. That might be something for Sandy Alderson to consider well before the July 31 trade deadline.
Terry Collins was worried that the error David Wright just made could lead to trouble. With the way the Yankees have hit this month, who could blame him?
Russell Martin and the homer-happy Yankees appeared a little out of practice when it came to celebrating a game-winning homer. No matter, they sent the Mets back to Queens without a win to show for their Bronx trip.
After watching their beloved Mets get man-handled in the Bronx by the Yankees over the weekend, Boomer & Craig took their seats next to one another in the Allstate Studio early this Monday morning, ready to break it all down and do a little venting.
With the Mets and the Yankees playing one another over the weekend, Jerry Recco was not forced to decide what team to lead off his update with, it was all about the Mets, the Yanks and the Subway Series.
It was not an easy weekend for any Met fan to digest. They came to the Bronx with such hope because they had overacheived this season. And they got swept by their cross-town rivals.
Russell Martin led off the ninth with his second homer of the game and the New York Yankees took advantage of some shoddy infield defense to beat the Mets 5-4.
Mark Teixeira hit a go-ahead homer and Phil Hughes won his third straight decision, sending the New York Yankees to a 4-2 victory over the Mets on Saturday night.
The Mets have bigger fish to fry than one game in the middle of the season, even if it is against a cross-town rival that their fan base vehemently dislikes.
Neil Keefe and Sweeny Murti look at the Yankees after two months of play with the Mets headed to the Stadium this weekend for the first part of the Subway Series.
