NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio whiffs on congratulatory Yankees tweet

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 while hizowner's efforts were probably heartfelt, he should know that it has been 15 years since the 2000 Subway World Series between the Mets and Yankees, but it was 2006 when both teams last made the playoffs together.

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.
