If there’s one thing that Red Sox and Mets fans can agree on, it’s that the Yankees suck, so they chanted it in unison on Tuesday night.
It’s been a rough start to the year for the New York Yankees, which is a great start to the year for Boston Red Sox and New York Mets fans.
Not only are they relishing in their division rival/intrastate rivals languishing in one of their worst starts in a long, long time, but they’re also sitting in first place.
The Red Sox are 14-9 and in first place in the A.L. East with a 3 game lead on the Toronto Blue Jays who are in second place, and 4.5 over the Yankees and Baltimore Orioles who are tied for last place.
The Mets are 9-9 but their pitching staff led by perennial Cy Young candidate, Jacob deGrom, has led the way to a .5 game lead over the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies.
When the Mets and Red Sox met on Tuesday night, the fans in the stands came together to harmonize over a glorious “Yankees suck” chant.
Red Sox, Mets fans chant Yankees suck
The Red Sox got the 2-1 win on Tuesday night but all fans won with the harmonious Yankees suck chant that echoed throughout the stadium as if it was a sold-out venue. The Mets look to get the win on Wednesday evening, but I’m just hopeful, regardless of the outcome, we get another Yankees suck chant.
