Found September 20, 2012 on Subway Squawkers:
This is a guest column from Becky W. about places to go watch Yankees and Mets games in the NYC area.  The rivalrybetween the New York Yankees and the New York Mets has been one of the fiercest in baseball since interleague play began in 1997. Many people enjoy watching a game with fans of their team. Both teams have their own bars and restaurants that their fans can visit to be in the presence of other fans during the game. Here is a list of some of the more prominent hangouts for Yankees and Mets fans: METS The Pine Restaurant Located at 37-10 114th St. in Queens, it is attached to the Holiday Inn. Many of the Met players have been known to eat here before and after games. It specializes in Italian food that is served in large portions. Entrees are on the inexpensive side, priced at $10-$30. Beers are between $4.00-$5.50. Foley's Located at 18 W 33rd St in Midtown, this Irish bar has a museum quality baseball display, including 1,800 autographed balls and 300 bobbleheads...

I May Be Wrong, But 6-10 Years For Wright? Really?

Last week, in a poll on, 67 percent of voters said the Mets should try to sign Wright to a six- or seven-year contract extension this winter; while 12 percent said the team should blow him away with an eight-or nine-year deal. Wow, I must be losing it… It just seems that lately my opinion is always out of line with the mainstream Mets fans… Six to seven? Eight...

Mets Awful Offense Should Be The Top Priority This Offseason

I know what you thinking.. How on earth could we spend the entire season talking about the bullpen…that woeful bullpen…and suddenly decide that the team’s offense should be the top priority this offseason?  Heres why: Mets rank 8th in MLB with 1,169 strike outs. Mets rank 22nd in MLB on the year, hitting just .242 with RISP Mets rank 24th in MLB with only 407 extra-base hits...

Jeter matches Yankees' record with eighth 200-hit season

NEW YORK -- Back at shortstop after a brief detour to the designated hitter spot caused by an ankle injury, Derek Jeter achieved another career milestone Wednesday night. Jeter singled leading off the first inning of the nightcap of the New York Yankees' doubleheader against the Toronto Blue Jays, his 200th hit of the season. It's the eighth 200-hit season for Jeter,...

Yanks outslug Jays, open 1-game lead

Streaking Ichiro Suzuki hit a go-ahead, two-run double in a seven-run fourth inning capped by Nick Swisher's grand slam, and the New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-7 Thursday night to open a one-game AL East lead over idle Baltimore. After struggling for much of the summer, the Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays and have won five in a row, their...

MMO Interview: Phil Niekro, Tim Wakefield Visit R.A. Dickey At Citi Field Last Night

In honor of Knuckleball! the movie coming out, Hall-of-Famer Phil Niekro and 200-game winner Tim Wakefield were out and about prior to today’s game alongside the Mets own R.A. Dickey and were kind enough to answer some of my questions as well as some other Mets bloggers while watching BP with us along the first base side. The interview began with Phil Niekro telling us the fascinating...

Disgusting Part 2: Elimination Boogaloo

I'm not going to go on another rant as I did last night. What's the point? Jeremy Hefner gives up eight runs in the first inning, the Mets give up another eight in the eighth and ninth, and they lose 16-1. It's no more or less disgusting than last night. It's just a different kind of disgusting. Whether it's Josh Edgin giving up a back breaking home run to Ryan...

Current Mets State Illustrates Why They Didn’t Bring Back Reyes

The Miami Marlins are in for the weekend, and with them comes Jose Reyes. Now that the season is dwindling down to a precious few games, I ask: Would the Mets season been significantly different had they re-signed Reyes? I don’t see how that is possible after last night. With the way the Mets are heading, by the time they are competitive again Reyes will be on the downside of his...

Cano denies rumor that he'll be suspended

Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano claimed on Thursday that an Internet rumor suggesting he was about to be suspended for 50 games was false, the New York Daily News reported. "Not at all," Cano told the Dailey News, regarding a Twitter message that Cano was going to be suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy. "There's no test or anything...

Mets manager says he's embarrassed after 16-1 loss to Phils

NEW YORK -- As they have kept alive their slim playoff hopes, the Philadelphia Phillies have refused to quit. New York Mets manager Terry Collins refused to answer when asked if he thought his team had done just that after another thumping, telling reporters they had to "ask them." The Mets' march of misery continued at Citi Field on Thursday night, quickly hitting...

Yankees, Blue Jays 7

NEW YORK -- Slumping Nick Swisher hit a grand slam during a seven-run fourth inning, and the Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays on Thursday with a 10-7 victory. Ichiro Suzuki and Derek Jeter remained hot for New York by combining for four hits and five RBIs in a game that took nearly four hours. Phil Hughes (16-12) capitalized on the offense to pick up his...
