’09 Yanks Finish Off ’73 Mets in Game 6

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Just like in the ’73 World Series, Yogi Berra will be questioned whether he should have started George Stone. Jon Matlack didn’t retire a batter after the Yankees scored 4 runs in the first, and Mariano staved off a late comeback with 2 scoreless innings in a 6-4 victory, which clinched the series for the Yanks 4-2. Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter, […]

’09 Yanks Flex Their Muscles, Take 3-2 Series Lead

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The script finally played out in Game 5 as many thought many it would on paper, as the 2009 Yankees hit 3 home runs and drubbed the 1973 Mets 7-0 to take a 3-2 lead in the Sim Series. Jerry Koosman started for the Mets on 3-days rest and his rust showed, giving up runs in […]

Seaver Carries Mets to Game 4 Victory- Series Tied

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Just 24 hours ago it appeared the ’09 Yankees were well on their well to finishing the ’73 Mets off quickly. The Mets have battled back and thanks to their ace now have tied the Sim Series at two-apiece. Tom Seaver pitched a complete game, allowing 1 earned run and striking out 12 in the […]

’73 Mets Rally, Beat Yanks 9-8 To Get Back in Series

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

The ’09 Yankees were a batter away from setting up their bullpen bridge and establishing a commanding 3-0 lead in the best of 7 Strat-O-Matic Sim Series. John Milner had other ideas as he hit a 3-run homer off David Robertson in the sixth to tie the game and erase Yankees leads of 5-0 and 8-4. The teams would […]

Yanks Dodge a Bullet, Take Game 2 in 9th

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Many thought the ’73 Mets were huge underdogs in this series, but through two games they have been right there with the Yankees. The difference is that one big hit. Last night, they may have blown their best chance of making this a series as they left 14 runners on base in a 2-1 loss […]

The “Melk Man” Delivers in Game 1

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

It was a classic start to this year’s NYBD Sim Series between the 1973 Mets and 2009 Yankees. Tom Seaver took on CC Sabathia at the new Yankee Stadium and both delivered outstanding performances. In the end, it was the most unlikely member of the Yankees roster that did the most damage to give them a 1-0 lead. Melky […]

NYBD World Series: ’73 Mets vs. ’09 Yankees

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

There will be World Series baseball in New York courtesy of NYBD. Each year I conduct a sim series using the software of Strat-O-Matic, a game that I have been playing since 1987. Starting tomorrow morning, we will recap what I hope to be an epic 7-game series between the 2009 Yankees and the 1973 […]
