A Mets Fan To New York Yankees: Please Sweep Us!

WASHINGTON - APRIL 26:  U.S. President Barack Obama is presented with an autographed New York Yankees jersey by team manager Joe Girardi during a ceremony celebrating the World Series champs in the East Room of the White House April 26, 2010 in Washington, DC. Despite being a Chicago White Sox fan, Obama celebrated the Yankees' victory and pointed to the team's visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center as an example of good community service.

For the first time in the history of the Subway Series I think to myself "Could the New York Yankees please put us out of our misery and sweep us?"

A sweep by the Yankees would go a long way towards putting the final nail in the coffin of the Omar Minaya era. Jerry Manuel can stay.

Will the Yankees help us? Can the Yankees actually hurt us by losing these games and leaving Omar’s job intact for the time being? That being said, the Yankees have already won this series before it even starts.

If the Mets sweep, we still lose because Omar will still be employed. If the Yankees sweep, we lose. If the Yankees win two out of three, we lose. I just don’t see any winning scenarios here.

Hopefully, this is the last time I have to say this to my fellow Mets fans: Root for the Yankees. Put the final nail in Omar’s coffin for us. This team needs a change of direction and only letting Omar go will change the direction of this team.

But are the Yankees up to helping us? They have injury problems of their own but they’re still the defending champs.

Please, Yankees… sweep us.

Show us the light at the end of the tunnel.
