A revolution is underway and it’s streaking right through Bill Buckner’s legs. Boston has been called the Cradle of Liberty and for good reason. It has been inhabited and visited by some important heroes such as Paul Revere, John Adams, Dr. Samuel Prescott, and now Omir Santos. Boston was the primary battleground for the American Revolutionary War with the Battle of Lexington and Concord and the Battle of Bunker Hill and the city sure knows a thing or two about tough battles. Yet nothing could prepare Boston for what they had witnessed this fortnight. Something far worse than the Boston Massacre has taken place. The invincible one had been reduced to human. The dancers moves went from salsa to tango…an awkwardly slow tango.
Give our Mets credit. Mightier than the British army at Yorktown, and with a leadership far superior to that of King George III, the Mets have entered the Boston stronghold and have come out with their heads held high, keeping Boston quieter than Big Papi's bat.
Boston just might just prove to be the cradle of the Mets existence, and Omir Santos might have provided a spark far superior than the Boston Tea Party itself. Down with Monarchy… Up with The Mets Sweeping them into the Bay...
..as if Ray Knight is crossing the plate all over again.
