Tomorrow We Steal Their Milk Money

I'm thrilled that the Mets pounded the Cardinals in last night's season opener. That goes without question. Glavine was terrific, Wagner gave up two ninth inning hits (wouldn't be a new season without it), and all is well in Queens. But can we PLEASE stick a muzzle on all these sportswriters ranting about how the Mets finally got "payback" for the Cards victory in last year's NLCS?

The Cardinals beat the Mets in the playoffs, and then won the World Series. The Mets won the first game of a 162 game season. The Mets didn't get payback. They kicked the Cardinals in the shin and called them a poopyhead after the Cardinals beat up their parents, emptied their bank account and stole their girlfriend.

It's a victory, sure, but please keep things in perspective.

"Of course, but I really want to leave my mark this time. You know, I want to walk away from the Yankees with people saying, 'Wow, now that guy got canned.'"
