Just a reminder to the Mets: Increasingly, we fans say we don’t particularly care about the Subway Series, that the novelty wore off long ago, that six games a year is too many, that Interleague’s an unnecessary disruption to baseball’s beautifully synchronized rhythms and that the whole thing is played out. These statements may accurately reflect how we view the world philosophically, but from a visceral standpoint…not so much. Hence, when you’re playing these three games this weekend, do your best to win them.
I know you do your best to win all your games. But you know what I mean. Really do your best. Really.
