2000 Game Recap: Robin Ventura Imitates Mike Piazza During Rain Delay
Well, the finale of the Subway Series was rained out to be scheduled for another time. However, that does not mean there was no entertainment on the field.

Editor’s Note: With there being no games to begin the season, this site will follow the 2000 season and post recaps as if those games happened in real time. If nothing else, it is better to remember this pennant winning season and revisit some of the overlooked games than it is to dwell on the complete lack of baseball.
