In search of the despairing Yankee blog


Squawker Lisa, I see you have noticed that Met blogs have names like "Depressed Met Fan" and "Pessimets," while Yankee blogs have titles like "Pride of the Yankees." But I did uncover one despairing Yankee blog - the E*Trade Baby's "Colicky Yankee Fan." In the blog, the E*Trade baby laments never having seen the Yankees win a World Series.

The blog was discontinued last November.

If Subway Squawkers was just a Mets blog, I would want to change the name to something like "This Train Is Out of Service. Service Will Resume Later This Evening, or Next Week, or in a Month or Two."

Not that I'm pessimistic or depressed or anything about the 2010 Mets.

It's not depressingly-named but Was Watching provides enough pessimism for the rest of the Yankee blogosphere combined.

I have a bright, colorful name for a Mets blog. Very bright, very colorful. You've heard of "Scott Proctor's Arm"? How about...

Lindsey Nelson's Jacket!

Jay - The Mets version this year may end up being called Wasn't Watching.
Uncle Mike - When you mentioned Scott Proctor's Arm, I was afraid you were going to suggest Carlos Beltran's Knee!

A depressing Mets blog should be called, in the words of Joe Buck, "The Yankees are back on top!"

Well maybe they should have not fired Willie Randolph in such an unprofessional fashion...it has gotten much worse after that night in L.A.
