Tonight, the highly anticipated “Subway Series” between the New York Yankees and the New York Mets will begin at Citi Field.
This series is always highly anticipated and a lot of fun, as both teams from sports’ biggest market clash in a showdown to determine New York City supremacy.
But rarely have we seen a showdown between both of these teams while each of them are in postseason contention.
For the longest time, we’ve seen the Mets as the underdog that doesn’t stand much of a chance.
But for the first time in MLB history, these two teams will meet while each of them holds sole possession of first place in their respective divisions, the American League East and National League East.

Time For The Subway Series
This is going to be an exciting two-game series this week.
It’s two teams from the same city who are both right in the thick of the postseason chase, leading their divisions and ready to make a splash as we kick off the stretch run of the season.
Perhaps it could turn out to be a prelude for what is to come in October.
These two teams have only met in the World Series once, that being in 2000, when the Yankees finished off a three-peat and captured their 26th World Series title.
That series went five games.
These two teams are evenly matched right now.
All eyes will be on the Yankees given their success this year, but the Mets cannot be overlooked.
The trade deadline is just a week away and now it’s time to get into the dog days of the season.
