They may still be hanging out near the bottom of the National League standings, but a historic sweep of the Yankees apparently injected a lot of confidence into at least one member of the Mets' lineup. Pitcher Collin McHugh, according to the New York Daily News tweeted:

"You can call us the NYC Sanitation Dept. because we just SWEPT the yankees from Queens to the Bronx" shortly after the Mets' fourth-straight win over their crosstown rivals.

The tweet came after the Mets recorded their first sweep of the Yankees since interleague play began in 1997.

Sadly, it appears either the Mets' PR staff or a look at the state of their clubhouses got the best of McHugh, and he deleted the tweet, leaving this as his only comment on the series:


He also seems preoccupied this week with some rules in the CBA that he finds aggravating.
