Yesterday we told you about a rumored baseball team that called itself “The New York Giants.” We here at the Mets Police do not believe this team actually existed, because if they did, surely the Mets would not have totally ignored them while constructing Citifield.
However, some do believe, and are going at great lengths to perpetuate this fraud.
Look at this carefully created World Series program from 1954. Are we really supposed to believe that this alleged “New York Giants” won the World Series in 1954, and they are never ever mentioned in the new Citifield design?
Are we really to believe the Mets NY logo is not really their own, but borrowed from these alleged ancestors?
Next, look at this pennant. Again, another phony trying to trick us into believing there was ever such a team in New York.
This photo on the left alledges to be of Willie Mays. All Mets fans know that Willie was an old outfielder with bad legs, surely not someone to be honored at a ballpark. Some claim he hit 660 home runs. Ridiculous! Everyone knows he only hit 14 as a part-time player in two seasons.
Finally we have this relic, recently uncovered by famous archaeologist Indiana Jones. It was found near the site of the former Mets stadium, the Polo Grounds. If it said Mets I might consider it to be authentic, but since it says Giants it has to be be part of this conspiracy.
This is all very silly. The only team that played in New York before the Mets were the Dodgers, and as everyone knows they folded in 1957 and there is no place on earth where the Dodgers legacy can be honored. Thank goodness we have Fred Wilpon looking out for the defunct Dodgers, and thank heavens the Mets do not fall for this “New York Giants” unicorn-like nonsense.
I dig the Mets Guy in Michigan. He brings it in this great sarcastic Yankee post.
Mets Guy in Michigan: If Bob Klapisch ran the All-Star Game
Among the sarcastic suggestions for the All Star Game….
All opposing players must wear No. 26 in tribute to the 26 world championships the Yankees have won. Did you know theyâ€™ve won 26 world championships? Thatâ€™s right, 26. This will be mentioned over the loud speakers between each half-inning, which is only slightly more frequently than normal. I repeat, 26 world championships. But don’t mention that theyâ€™ve lost the last two World Series theyâ€™ve appeared in to expansion teams.
Speaking of the Yankees – I’m rooting for them to sweep the Rays. I like watching playoff baseball and I hope the Yankees are there. I’d like to see the Rays make it too, that would be cute. And Torre just so he can be righteous. Boston can stay home.
I’m a little worried.
I’m all excited about The Mets. I’m emailing friends, I even started an elevator conversation about The Mets this morning.
They have caught up to the Phillies and Jerry the Gangsta has them playing with some spunk for the first time since, I dunno, September 11, 1987.
Yet I worry.
The Mets have conditioned my brain to expect that they will now lose every game until the All Star Break and they’ll be 6 back on Monday.
They wouldn’t do that to us, would they?
Great night! Mets win, Phillies lose.
Pelfrey was rocking. SNY mentioned the Giants. The Jets acknowledged Queens for the first time in a quarter century. UnderReyes got his first hit.
I’m starting to get excited so watch out, that probably means they lose 5 of 6.
Maybe they shouldn’t have allowed the Jets’ bad luck back in the building.
Ryan Church, I hope you get well soon. Don’t rush back just for a baseball game, get healthy.
Meanwhile in the Bronx – Rays have nice uniforms but Yanks win.
Most importantly I get to go to bed early! Good night all around.
Cheers to SNY, they actually mentioned that the Giants played in New York City once! (And they employ Lee Mazzilli, but I digress.)
Fred Wilpon owns part of this network, right? It would not surprise me if someone were fired from this departure from the Brooklyn Dodgers propoganda machine.
