Response to Corino's Boston-New York Sports Post

He starts off from the Mets perspective by bringing up Bill Buckner. Yeah sure Buckner fucked up in ’86, but we weren’t alive then. I don’t think it’s fair for kids of our generation to argue events that happened before we were even alive. It’s like Canadien fans who talk about their 24 Stanley cups, however 12 of those cups came when there were only 6 teams in the league, so they're not really legit. Since '86 the Mets have won nothing, the Sox on the other hand have won three times as many titles and are on track for a fourth this season. It’s frankly sad how much the Mets have to honor the '86 team this year just because they’ve had nothing to celebrate since. Yeah, I know you made it to the World Series last year, but making it to a final and losing is the equivalent of having the shit that smelled the least bad in the locker room, yeah it doesn’t smell bad but it’s still shit.
On to the Yankees. Any way you look at it 27 titles is impressive, but only 5 of those 27 have occurred since 1978, so a lot of those titles were in the garbage years of pitching history. The rivalry between the Sox and Yanks was great. It’s really died down lately 'cause frankly the Yankees have sucked ass in the recent years. The rivalry was at its peak in ’03-’04 with the Boone home run and the Sox' massive comeback. Don’t come at me with overall win and loss records because that is useless. Flat out the Yankees have won 5 titles in our lifetime compared to the Sox 3 so they have a slight advantage for now in terms of bragging rights.
You can’t flat out say New York is a better baseball city than Boston, it’s just a preposterous statement. NYC has TWO teams and only have two more championships in our lifetime than the Sox do and the Sox are in a better state for the long term than both of these teams due to our stacked outfield and Bogaerts.
Don’t even get me started on football, hockey, or basketball because New York doesn’t even compare to any of the Boston teams in those sports.
