Interleague play gets underway today in Major League Baseball.
The New York Mets and New York Yankees get together for the first of two series this season. The Subway Series may have lost some of its luster the past couple seasons, but both teams have a lot riding on this series.
Starting tonight, the teams will play a three game series at Citi Field.
The Mets, 20-22 overall, have been struggling and have won just three of their past ten games but are 14-8 at home this season.
The Yankees meanwhile are in second place in the American League East with a record of 25-16. They have been in a bit of a slide however, losing six of their last ten and three straight.
The Yankees are just 12-10 away from Yankee Stadium this season.
For the Mets, they may be playing for their managers job. There has been speculation that a bad weekend could force the Mets organization to drop the ax on Jerry Manuel.
The Yankees are trying to get back on the winning track and keep pace with the Tampa Bay Rays. Injuries have gotten the best of both these teams, but nobody is using that as an excuse.
This three game Subway Series is big for both teams.
