Oh No, Another Mets-Yankees Series
This three-game Citi Field series actually could be interesting rather than depressing. Despite the collapse of Johan Santana and the glove-hole of Luis Castillo in the last subway series, the Mets have gained three and a half games on the Phillies since then (though the faltering Phils have helped). As for the Yankees, they recently received an inspirational visit from Brian Cashman, plus their Hot Dog in Chief caught Reggie Jackson in the home run standings, so you know they'll be pumped. All told the teams are well-matched and... oh, who are we kidding? The Mets will trip over their dicks. But they look good for tonight at least.
