that there could be no playoff baseball in October this year in New York. Of course the Yanks & Mets aren't done yet, but it's going to be a tough month & a half for both teams. BTW, if that does happen, I guess that's one less thing the Rangers to compete with come October. There's still football, but at least the Rangers may have a bit more spotlight on them.

This is actually a very relevant thread.

Come October when everyone is amped up in here for the home opener and a few big games early, they always complain how the Rangers never even get a single line on the backpage.

They still won't, but since theres a better chance the Mets and Yanks wont make the postseason this year, maybe the eyes and ears will focus on hockey a tad more...

Oh wait.

Theres that other sport, called Football. Forget it.

I'd just be happy if the Phillies exploded or something. I really hate that team. Not just because they're division rivals for the Mets, I just hate them.

They'll always find a way. It'll be Manning and Favre from August to January.

As long as there is gambling, football will be king in America, not baseball or any other sport.

Good I can't stand baseball, it's too slow. Having said that though I think the slowness of the game really makes the playoffs better. Thats when you really hang on every pitch and the slowness makes it more dramatic. I only like baseball during playoff time. Who can sit and watch 182 straight games of that stuff during the season though?

Hockey is number one for me
Football is number two

So my favorite time of the year is right around the corner and I can't wait. Sundays will have meaning again!

the old days of waiting for news in the morning papers are long gone...

does anybody that post here really need the post or news to be informed?

I'm a huge Met fan and I watch almost every game.... but I wouldn't be that upset if they missed the playoffs because...

1) they won't win the World Series anyway
2) hockey season starts so gives a damn....

I'm a huge Yankees fan and honestly, I don't think they are making it. They are too damn inconsistent, they've been decimated by injuries, their starting rotation has holes and they are refusing to gain any ground on the Red Sox and Rays despite each team having significant injuries too.

There's a stretch coming up with 9 games against 3 mediocre/bad teams (Royals, Blue Jays, Orioles). They need to win about 7 of them. If they finish this stretch with under 5 wins, the season is over in my opinion.

As for the Mets, they are too inconsistent themselves and their bullpen is abysmal. I don't think they have the type of lineup to hang with a team like the Phillies and even if they make the playoffs, I don't like their chances against a team like the Cubs, so they probably wouldn't be in it long.


The only way the Rangers would get any kind of october attention is if they race off to a 2006-2007 Buffalo Sabres-esque streak. Anything less than that will be dwarfed by which restaurant Brett Favre chose to purchase lunch at that afternoon.

Thats why I'm here. My friends wonder how I became more into the Rangers than the Yankees and how I no longer care that much if we fail and/or Boston succeeds. (Although I still secretly hate Boston doing anything remotely successful.)

The Yankees are DONE.

6 games back of the wild card? It's over...

Goodbye Abreu.

Also... just wondering aren't both New York NFL teams really in New Jersey?
