As a New York area baseball fan, I will have a win-win scenario at hand this weekend. Either way, a New York team will win. The story line going into this weekend has been the lack of winning on both sides. The Yankees got swept in Fenway last weekend, and the Mets lost to the Braves by 18 runs this week. Not exactly the end of June I had hoped for.

Anyone can chime in here, but New York area fans, how does this years series feel compared to others? In 2000 we were given a gift by having these teams face each other in the World Series. As a New Yorker, I would like to see that occur again.

I hope the weather will cooperate. The Yankees got a day of rest today because their game was rained out. Now I hope we can see baseball this weekend.

Also worth noting is that the second round of the Subway Series will be on September 11th in Queens.

It was interesting the first couple of years. Now it's become like Yankees/Red Sox...the national media will shove it down our collective throats for the next 3 days despite nobody outside of the New York area/Yankee fans caring, and despite the fact the 2 teams are barely over .500......Having them play each other on September 11, now THAT will be cool however. That's the only one I'll actually watch at least the pregame, and the leadup, the other 5 I could give two $#!ts about.

Also, the forecast for the next 2 days looks terrible here, so the Yankees could be getting a few more days off here.

Don't hold your breath, by Sept 11 both teams will be irrelevant for 2021

I'd advocate having the Mets & Yankees play every year on September 11, alternating the home site between Yankee Stadium and Citi Field

The NL East is so pathetic that a .500 team is a powerhouse. With strict enforcement of pitchers using foreign substances to improve their grip, there's really no telling how this season will play out.



Right now, the Yankees are next to last in the AL for runs scored. It's a home run or nothing. They lead the AL in walks so pitchers are pitching around their few power hitters. This doesn't seem to be like the old Yankees that feast on bad pitching so a league with more offense isn't going to help them. They don't have the relentless lineup of days gone by.
