Oddly enough, it is probably the partial cause of their collapse - relying on so many veteran bats and arms to get through the season.
I'm also a Yankees fan, but I don't see the Yankees-Mets rivalry as significant. I could only wish such a collapse on Red Sox fans.
Out of curiosity, are you one of those rare NY baseball fans who roots for both the Yankees AND the Mets? (I've never quite understood that, but I know such fans exist.)
If you're not, and consider yourself a Yankee fan, why the interest in the Mets and what they're doing (or not doing)? What am I missing here? I'd think you'd be far more interested in what's been a great Yankee season...an incredible comeback from what seemed like a lost year. Your team's about to battle the Indians in the ALDS. Lots to talk about there I would think.
I know you're not like PeteyNice, trying to stir sh!t up for the sake of stirring sh!t up. I'm guess I'm just curious as to why a Yankee fan who has so much to look forward to would even care about the Mets at this point.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
