Found May 30, 2013 on Subway Squawkers:

It was only the third time since May 3 the Mets had scored as many as five runs in a game. Jeremy Hefner was 0-5 going into the game, including two losses to the lowly Marlins. The Mets were 0-10 in games Hefner started. When the Mets scored five runs in the top of the first, I figured it would be one of those games in which the Yankees would come back with several runs of their own in the bottom of the first. Instead, Hefner allowed just one run through five innings before giving up a couple more in the sixth.While it's been a great series for the Mets, even Met fans have trouble believing that the dismal season is turning around. It's easier (and almost as enjoyable) to believe that the depleted Yankee roster has stopped overachieving.The Yankees do have Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis expected bac...

A bright spot was Ivan Nova, pitching 5.0 innings in relief and giving up only one run, making it clear that he plans to fight for his rotation spot. For the Yankees overall...

Yankees get swept by the Mets, and I am officially peeved

So, that really stunk. I have a lot to say about the Yankees getting stomped on by the Mets. Unfortunately, I also have a lot to do today, so I will be unable to do a full-scale Squawk until later. The Yankees looked terrible this week. (Oh, and I totally called that Mariano Rivera would blow the save on Tuesday -- once I saw the stat at the game about him going 18 for 18 in saves...
