who should i root for- mets or yankees. want a ny team?

so i'm looking for a team to root for and i want it to be a nyc team since i love the city so much. i really like the yankees and mets also, not just for the money. i traveled by myself in 2007 to yankee stadium to see a redsox yanks game and loved it. i have been watching the yankees ever since. but i'm also thinking about the mets since i see them quite a bit as in being a huge david wright fan. but i'm afraid if he ever gets traded, i'm stuck with the team. i love both ny teams but would like some help. also, i have a lot of vintage yankees posters of gehrig and dimaggio and such. i'm also wearing yankees pajama pants right now too lol. much help appreciated. thank you

I think you should make a real twist and pick the Mets. I'll explain why.Mets games have a lot more passion and excitement. We appreciate when we win. We don't take it for granted. The reason why the Yankees remained competitive for a long period of time was because they bought enough talent to get to the postseason, yet couldn't mold the chemistry to win a World Series. Back in the late-90's, most of their core team was younger home-grown player's, especially pitcher's who were entering their prime. The Mets spend their share of money too, but we do it on things we actually need. We needed an ace, so we traded for Santana. We didn't ''buy'' him like C.C. and Burnett. We needed a closer, so we signed one. We needed a set-up man, and got a great one, in a trade. I'm not saying this to insult Yankees fans, but we're just more of a real team. Everyone jumps on the Yankees bandwagon. Everyone expects the most out of them, yet don't even care when it's not delivered on. The Mets have had their share of problems, but going into '09, we have a much better shot for a World Series, because we only have one team in the NL East to worry about, meaning they need to worry about the Rays and Red Sox. The NL is less competitive, than the AL, which also provides better chances for the Mets to deliver in on a pennant and World Series in the near future.

You don't need to worry about David Wright or Jose Reyes leaving the Mets. These are two home grown Mets, who really are the icon of the franchise, who want to be here, and will here for most, if not, all of their careers. Although not a homegrown Met, my favorite Met is Johan Santana. It'll be hard picturing him pitch on another team in his career. He's arguably the best pitcher in baseball, and is in his prime, and will continue to be for some time. One Mets World Series will make them own the New York area. The Mets actually have had higher attendance than the Yankees in 22 out of their 47 years of existence, which may be shocking to some.One person described New York fans are ''1/3 Yankees fan, 1/3 Mets fan, 1/3 front runners fan.'' In other words, who ever winning more is the 1/3 front runner fan. It's hard to take a team personal, when you're loose, and not committed to one team in that sport, so I'd suggest not being that. I'm not sure who you are committed to, but if it's the Yankees, stick with them. If it's not anyone, I'd recommend the Mets, but pick who you feel better suits you.

The Yankees have a long legacy. We all know this. But so many people like them, like how people like the Dallas Cowboys, or the Los Angeles Lakers, or the Bulls during the 90's. People often don't take Yankees fans seriously and label them front-runners. In some ways it's true, in some, it's not.But Mets fans are more nationally more respected, but we're more attached to our team. There's so many people in New York who just like the Yankees because they think it's ''cooler.'' You'll go around and ask people who don't follow the game, what team do you like? They'll say the Yankees. Yet they don't watch many games or know even simple things about the team.There's so many transplants to New York, from all parts of America, who just go with the Yankees too, because it sounds cooler.

Also, the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry is great, but the Phillies-Mets rivalry that's starting to come about really is becoming one of the best in baseball too. Another benefit is that it's cheaper to go to Mets games. It's still expensive, but it's easier to get in. Yankee Stadium, the old, and new one, are like tourist destinations too, so many people from all over want to go to games there. Shea, and Citi Field, just aren't the same way. Maybe the team who you're closer too will factor in to your decision, because it'll be important in judging what games you'll be able to go to?
