For fans outside of the New York area, this weekend's series might not seem like a big deal.
The series will not have any major impact on either team's season, but for the fans and teams alike, it's a battle for bragging rights.
Over the past few years, the Mets haven't been as good a team as the Yankees, but that may no longer be the case.
Heading into the series, the Mets (32-26) are a game and a half out in the National League East and have a very good chance to contend for a playoff spot.
Meanwhile in the Bronx, the Yankees are 31-25 and only a half game out of first place behind the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East.
So, while this head-to-head matchup is always primarily a battle for bragging rights, both teams are looking to move up in their divisions, which makes this series that much more important.
Let's break down each game between the Yankees and Mets along with a prediction for each game.
