How interesting it is that we are taking on the Yankees arch nemesis the Red Sox and the Yankees are taking on our new arch nemesis the Phillies. I never would have thought that we would be in this position that we can “ask” the Yankees to do us a solid and put a hurtin on Phillies and the Yankees are probably looking at us thinking if we could do the same to the Red Sox. Currently the Mets are 1.5 games behind the division leading Phillies and the Yankees are currently 1.5 games away from the division leading Blue Jays (but only one game away from the 2nd place Red Sox). I guess it’s appropriate to use the old saying “you scratch my back and ill scratch yours”. Time for some NY “business” if ya catch my drift..
