Jerry Manuel: Still An Honest Man

Yes, the Mets split the last 4 games of the 2008 "subway series." Yes, they took the season series 4 games to 2. Yes, they won all 3 games at Yankee Stadium.

Does it matter? No. This matters:

We're kind of like the second team... The Yankees have won 26 championships... That's just the way it is...

I don't have a problem with that. I love playing them. I don't have a problem with that...

Shoot, use that as motivation. If you want to be first, win. Win some world championships. Don't be first just by popularity or who wears what jersey. Win some championships and you can claim first.
-- Jerry Manuel.

Oh yeah. That's gonna be until we win a World Series. And if we win one, they're going to be over us because they've won 26.
-- Carlos Beltran.

The front page of the Daily News says, "YANKS RULE!"

The front page of the Post says, "WERE NO. 2."

As the Bible says, "Great is truth, and mighty above all things." Hallelujah.
