The New York Yankees Still Own The Big Apple

A Body Of Work

Unless I’m very wrong, one year doesn’t make a career.

One rousing season of success doesn’t make a franchise suddenly rise from the depths of mediocrity.

This is what the New York Mets will face in 2016.

Despite their postseason success in 2015, and despite a young, promising personnel grouping that has everybody and their mother excited, they’ll still have to prove it on the field. Multiple seasons of success and championships to boot will be the only thing the doctor can prescribe in order to allow New York City to change its color from Navy Blue to a lighter shade.

For too many years running now, it’s been the Yankees, not the Mets, who’ve strung along years of raging success.
