The most important Subway Series will always be the 2000 World Series, but after that, the three-game series this past weekend At Citi Field might be next on the list.
The Yankees haven’t lost in June with six straight wins and now it’s time for a two-game series with the Nationals and Bryce Harper’s first games at Yankee Stadium.
There aren’t many pitchers in the league that you can basically chalk up as a loss before the game is even played, but whenever the Yankees play a team with one of these pitchers, they land him.
The Yankees won the first Subway Series of the season, stopped the Mets’ winning streak and reminded everyone they are and always will be New York’s team.
For the first time in years, the Subway Series will actually mean something for both teams in what is a renewed rivalry in the city.
The Yankees need to make sure that the Mets remember that they still aren’t on the same level and will never be when it comes to the Subway Series.
After starting the season 1-4, the Yankees have won eight of their last 11 and are tied for first in the AL East with the first half of the Subway Series up next.
The Yankees were swept at home in the first half of the Subway Series and now head to Queens searching for answers against the Mets.
