The incredible power of the New York Yankees

Attendance in Brooklyn forced the Dodgers out and the same with the Giants in the Polo Grounds. Both teams doing great in CA.
How have the Mets survived ? Are they next if their owner stops spending and eats his losses ? The Red Sox dominate New England.
The Yankees dominate NY. Are the Mets needed in NY ?

    The Yankees are like the Dallas Cowboys, pre season hype year after year and anything less than playoff wins are considered unacceptable.

    I hate them but respect their winning history

    Well the Mets just built a new stadium in 2009, so I don't see them going anywhere.

    Unless the stadium is portable and they could take it with them. 😉

    Growing up in the 70's/80's while living roughly 30mins from Boston, it seemed like every kid's first words out of the womb were always Yankees Suck! followed up with Beat LA!

    When ther Yankees-Red Sox rivalry was at its peak (early 2000's imo) you'd be hardpressed to find a more entertaining game. Games played at the highest levels and both teams really hated each other lol. Since then I've had nothing but respect for how good some of those NY teams were and how most of them came through when needed in the biggest moments.

    The mid 2000's Red Sox was an era that was actually more satisfying than the Patriots run to be honest

    The 2004 ALCS was one of the most incredible sports event in the history of sports in my opinion, if not the most significant in New England sports history

    There were 3 baseball fields ( see above photo ) right next to Yankee Stadium in the 70’s when I went, on millions of dollars worth of real estate.
    Kids played ball there all the time.

    I'm not sure that I'd go that far but for many of the older long standing Sox fans at the time that had watched year after year of losing for so long,yeah I could see how many would feel that way.

    It definitely was one of the most incredible sports events in sports history but I'd put the 2001 Pats run up there with it. NE was the laughingstock of the league for years,the 100M QB gets hurt and your 6th round QB carries you to a SB victory against arguably one of the most heavily favored opponents ever in the greatest show on turf. Even the two playoff games before that had you expecting the Raiders or Steelers ending their season at any moment.

    Let's just say that that 5-10 stretch for Boston/NE sports was absolutely amazing to watch as a fan between the numerous titles from the Pats & Sox and even watching the Celtics go on a worst to first run that ended with a championship.
    Dood times. 😉👍

    I should have clarified the Patriots run after 2001, meaning the 2001 Patriots was equal to the 2004 Sox

    I worded that wrong for sure

    Mets wont be going anywhere. MLB if looking to expand not just keep moving teams around. They wont be doing anything until they get the mess with the As and Rays figured out. Rays will probably stay somewhere around Tampa and theyre trying to get the As to Vegas but the city is fighting back against the state and doesnt want a cheap skate team like the As. Cant say I blame them, especially not for real estate right on the strip.

    I think the single most satisfying season was that 2004 run for the Sox. overall, I will take the Patriots 19 years.

    04 was amazing. after 03 happened I was pretty devastated. but it was all worth it that next season. the world series was almost a let down after that 7 game Yankees series. I remember going into work being so tired because the games took so long.

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.

    There are rumors that the Mets may win a game this season.

    0-4 start and that owner is a multi billionaire. Time to move the team to Oakland.
