    Mets to Challenge World Series in Court

    NEW YORK (AP) --The New York Mets announced today that they are going to court to get an additional inning added to the end of Game 5 of the World Series. The batting, pitching, and bench coaches for the Mets held a press
    conference earlier today. They were joined by members of the Major League Players Union.

    "We meant to hit those pitches from the Yankee pitchers," said the Mets batting coach. "We were confused by the irregularities of the pitches we received, and believe we have been denied our right to hit."

    One claim specifically noted that a small percentage of the Mets batters had intended to swing at fast balls, but actually swung at curve balls. It was clear that these batters never intended to swing at curve balls, though a much higher percentage were not confused by the pitches.

    Reporters at the press conference pointed out that the Mets had extensively reviewed film of the Yankees pitchers prior to the World Series and had in fact faced the Yankees in inter-league play earlier in the year.

    "The fact remains that some of the pitches confused us and denied us of our right to hit," said the Mets batting coach. "The World Series is not over yet and the Yankees are celebrating prematurely."

    Major League Baseball has reviewed the telecast of all the World Series games and recounted the balls and strikes called by the umpires of each game."While some of the strikes called against the Mets were, in fact,balls, there were not enough of them to change the outcome of the World Series," the commissioner said.

    Another portion of the Mets legal claim stated that, based on on-base percentage, the Mets had actually won the World Series, regardless of the final scores of the games. "It's clear that we were slightly on-base more often than the Yankees," said a Mets spokesman. "The World Series crown is rightly ours."

    The manager of the Mets has remained in relative seclusion, engaging in some light jogging for exercise. He has stated that he believes "we need to let the process run its course without a rush to judgment."

    The Mets should never have traded Buchanan to the Marlins. They only have themselves to blame.

    Hey man, don't give the Mets any ideas!

    (Being a Yankees fan, I'm just hoping that the statute of limitations has run out. )

    Ah, c'mon FORD, don't roll your eyes. ya started a (moderately) humorous topic bashing the republicans before. It should be apparent at this point that neither side is without flaws in their handling of the issue, so I think its time for us to find the humor in the situation.

    Let's not forget all the facts here......

    The umpire who called the game is George Steinbrenner's brother.

    The commissioner of baseball, who makes the certification of "World Series Winner" was the chair of Steinbrenner's campaign for President of MLB owners association, and has been offerred a cushy job in the Yankees organization.

    The balls thrown by Yankee pitchers were known to be defective.

    Yankee Stadium staff actually stood out in the baselines during the game and prevented Mets runners from getting to the bases.

    OK, now this little analogy is a bit more accurate
