Things That Make You Go Hmmmm....

Would the New York Mets even exist in the alternate universe?

As one of baseball's first expansion teams in this universe, the Mets were founded in 1962 to replace New York's departed NL teams, the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants. The team's colors combine the Dodgers' blue and the Giants' orange.

In the alternate universe, the Brooklyn Dodgers never left New York, and with San Francisco possibly underwater from "The Big One", that would kinda put the kibosh on the Giants moving there.

In this universe, after the baseball team moved to San Francisco after the 1957 season, the New York Football Giants shortened their name to simply the New York Giants.

In the alternate universe, if the New York Giants had stayed, the football team would still be known today as the New York Football Giants.

Or maybe the Giants moved to another city 'over there'.

Then, perhaps the New York Mets could have been founded to just replace the New York Giants. Wearing only the Giants' orange.

And the football team could have still shortened their name to simply the New York Giants.

Interesting observations. So who won the '69 World Series?

For the sake of synchronization, let's just say the "Miracle Mets" did also 'over there'.

However, the New York Mets were founded to just replace the New York Giants baseball team in the alternate universe, who went on to become the San Francisco Giants as well.

Because even if the 'Big One' had occurred, in all probable likelihood it would have happened in 1906, giving plenty of time for San Francisco to have been rebuilt along the 'new' coastline.

But of course, this is all theoretical.

Sydney, Australia in the alternate universe. Cool!
