We have reached the final matchup in the first round of the Metstradamus Hall of Hate … it’s the 1 seed vs. the winner of the play-in vote at 16:
(1) The Wilpons vs. (16) Matt Cain
Why you should hate the Wilpons:
Oh, come on. I really gotta explain it to you? If I have to explain to you why you should hate Mets owner Fred Wilpon and his son Kim Kardashian, then this is obviously your first visit to any Mets blog, ever. This is the Wilpons’ first appearance on the hate list vote and they debut as a one seed. Honestly, the Wilpons can hang out in the clubhouse eating chicken, drinking beer, and playing MLB The Show on Playstation, and win this vote by a hefty margin.
How Matt Cain got here:
Matt Cain defeated Cardinals crybaby Jack Clark in the play-in vote by a score of 33-29 to win the right to face the Wilpons in Round 1. Cain might have to throw a 99 mph pitch at the Wilpon’s head to win this vote. Then again, that would automatically make Cain very popular in Queens. The only question here is whether Cain can get a single vote in this battle.
