We are still in their heads, even after 2 consecutive NL titles, they still fear us. Philadelphia will always be the step brother and it could not be any more evident that Charlie Manuel has brought the Mets into the light in what I like to call Spygate by the Cheatin’ Phils. The Mets, Braves, Red Sox, Marlins, Yankees and Rockies have all made claims that the Phils are cheaters. They were also caught red handed where Charlie Manuel denied cheating, ummm hello red neck you were caught. He then said that the Mets home record which he said was “14 and 2” should indicate the Mets are cheating. This guy is a complete jackass, before you start throwing accusations make sure you know the actual record and before you deny you did something make sure their wasn’t visual evidence of you actually cheating.
The fact that all of these other clubs were skeptical of the Phils, I have to say I believe the hype. Not only that but this has been rumored since ’07. I really can’t understand how a team who is one of the best teams in recent memory in the National League just cannot get us out of their heads, a team who has not brought it home since 1986. Anyways, I find it funny and really hope that karma hits the Phils and the blow it as they now have no closers and keep those fingers crossed, Cliff Lee comes to Flushing to bring the pennant back to New York.
