Mets pitcher Collin McHugh makes Twitter joke after sweep of Yankees

Collin McHugh, the young righthander who is scheduled to make his first start of the season for the New York Mets on Saturday, rubbed a little salt into the already wounded New York Yankees after his team took all four games of the Subway Series this weekend.

McHugh — who didn't even get to look at a Yankee player from the mound during the unbelievable sweep — did all of his bragging on his Twitter account.

“You can call us the NYC Sanitation Dept. because we just SWEPT the yankees from Queens to the Bronx,” McHugh tweeted (@Collin_McHugh) after the game. The tweet appeared to be deleted shortly after.

For the reeling Yankees, it looks like their unfathomable run with a bunch of scrappy fill-ins could have run its course. Hopefully, the cavalry bugles will bleat this weekend against the Boston Red Sox when Kevin Youkilis and Mark Teixeira come back to Yankee Stadium.
