This weekend is about as good as it gets for the first Subway Series matchup of the season.
The Yankees hold the upper hand in the last eight games these two teams have played against each other, entering play on Friday with a 6-2 record. The Mets, however, have not had a team in the past couple years that is meshing as well as it is now.
So who will come out on top in this series?
The Mets sit in third place in the NL East, but only by 1.5 games with a 32-26 record, while the Yankees find themselves in second in the AL East, by a half game at 31-25.
A lot of the Mets' success has come because of the man they put on the mound, and the Yankees look for their starter to pitch against his own league as he had in years past.
