Welcome back to Mets Chat Room. The boys against the Nationals. Claudio Vargas will become the seventh pitcher to start for the Mets this spring.
The Yankees’ series is a couple of days away and nobody is making a big deal if it.
Nor should they. You will hear about what an impact interleague play has made on attendance. Don’t drink that Kool-Aid.
I would rather see a Mets-Marlins game than a Mets-Yankees game. I know the Yankees would draw more, but that’s unimportant to me.
The integrity of the major league schedule, and that all teams run the same race is what matters most.
Interleague play is, always has been, always will be, a shameless gimmick.
