According to most New York surveys these days, Bill de Blasio has muffed up a lot of things during his term as mayor.
But when ol' Bill can’t even get a congratulatory tweet to the Yankees right — it's de blasphemy.
After the Yankees clinched the first American League wild card spot Thursday night with a 4-1 win over the rival Red Sox — also the 10,000th win in the franchise’s history — the mayor’s official account tweeted this message:
“It's been 15 years but New York again is Baseballtown, USA. Fingers crossed for a Subway Series. Congrats, @Yankees.”

And the last time I checked no New Yorker ever called the city “Baseballtown, USA.”
That's what we get for electing a Red Sox fan.
