This decade was great for the Yankees—winning two World Series—but not great for the Mets, only making the playoffs a couple of times.

Some Yankees and Mets pitchers from this decade will forever be key components in the franchise's history, such as Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, and Mariano Rivera.
