The Last Ten Games of The New York Yankees and The New York Mets

This article is a comparison of the last 10 games that The New York Yankees (American League) and The New York Mets (National League) played in 2009. It is also about why I chose The Yankees and The Mets as the teams for this comparison.

I grew up in The Bronx and went to Yankee Stadium as a kid and was more interested in the bagel and cold cut sandwiches that we brought with us, than the baseball game, but my three male cousins (who I always went with), and their parents, were pretty focused on the game. Being a Yankees fan, was part of growing up in The Bronx.

In 1969, (one of the years that The N.Y. Mets won The World Series) I went upstate for the summer, to a bungalow colony. Janet, a girl who was about my age, was from Queens. She was obsessed with Tom Seaver, and had bubblegum card pictures of Tom Seaver.and The Mets. We all liked Tom Seaver, and we all liked The Mets. I think some of them were actually into baseball. I was more into reading Sun Signs by Linda Goodman, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, and writing. But I did like Shea Stadium. My father had worked in The New York World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows Park in 1964 and 1965, and Shea Stadium reminded me of that.

I played on a softball team with co-workers, against the softball teams of other companies in New York City, when I was in my early twenties (which was years after The 1964/65 New York World’s Fair. So I knew the game of baseball, from watching the games as a kid, and playing softball with my co-workers.

In 1986, I moved to Boston for a year. It was the next time that The New York Mets won the World’s Series; they were playing against The Boston Red Sox. They take their baseball very seriously in Boston. Everyone was routing for The Red Sox, and I thought I was the only one in Boston who (secretly, quietly) was routing for The Mets. I was happy when they won, but nice people whom I worked with, were so upset. I felt sorry for a lot of people in Boston that day, because the city was so sad.

It was different than Houston in 2009. I live in Houston, now. I like The Astros, too. Houston loves The Astros. A close friend of mine who used to take her son and daughter to games when they were growing up, became a serious fan. Someone I know in Houston, displays pictures of Craig Biggio (of The Astros) and his son at a baseball game in Houston. Houston does love The Astros, but in October of 2009, when The Mets played The Astros in New York City, and won, it wasn’t The World Series. If it had been, maybe people in Houston would have been as sad, but it was just a few normal days.

The following is a list of the last ten games that The Yankees and Mets played in 2009, which team won each game, and what the scores were. I got the information about The Yankees from http://www.Yankees.MLB.com, and the information about The Mets from http://www.Mets.MLB.com.

Looking at the last ten games of 2009 played by The Mets and The Yankees, It shows that The Yankees (in those last ten games) were only a game ahead of The Mets(in those last ten games.). We’ll see what happens next year. I haven’t looked at the Astrological charts of both teams, but maybe New York’s National League baseball team, The Mets, will win another World Series.  New Yorkers are already very proud of The N.Y. Yankees, and are also proud of The N.Y. Mets for their wins.
