The New York Mets may have revenge on their minds this evening when they kick off the latest edition of the Subway Series against the Yankees at Citi Field.
It was just two weeks ago that the Yankees swept the Mets in the Bronx, triggering a 10-game winning streak that ended with back-to-back losses to the Atlanta Braves, including a 10-5 setback on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees hit four home runs in the loss, but starter Phil Hughes (7-6) gave up four of his own and Boone Logan served up another.
While the Yankees lead the majors with 105 home runs, they have had trouble hitting with runners in scoring position. They were just 2-for-11 in such situations on Wednesday and their .218 ...

Mets News and Notes:
Frank Francisco tells Mike Puma in the Post about the Yankees: "I can't wait to strike out those chickens. I want to strike out the side against them. I've done it before." Francisco, pressed about the poultry reference, added: "I think I've said too much already."
Ronny Cedeño is expected to rejoin the Mets for Friday...
Frank Francisco is not having a good season, but that's done nothing to deter the reliever's confidence. Francisco's Mets will take on the Yankees for three games beginning on Friday, and he had a simple message for his upcoming opponents. "I can't wait to face those chickens," Francisco told the New York Post. "I want to strike out the side against...
So Squawker Jon and I will be at Friday and Sunday's Subway Series games. Sunday, in particular, looks to be shaping up as a great matchup, what with R.A. Dickey facing CC Sabathia. And just in time for the Subway Series, a Met has said something dopey and ridiculous.I am not talking about closer Frank Francisco telling the New York Post that "I can’t wait to face those...
Chris Young pitched 6 innings giving up 3 runs on a home run.
The Mets lost to the Yankees today by a score of 4-3. Young pitched well for 6 innings before giving up a 3 run homer to Ibanez. Jon Rauch gave up a game winning homer to Eric Chavez.
The Mets runs came on a solo shot by Kirk, an RBI by Thole, and a base hit by Chris Young. Daniel Murphy took Soriano to the warning track...
Last night the New York Mets extended their winning streak to four games with a 6-4 victory over the Yankees and quite frankly, it was awesome. I know it’s just one game, but the way it unfurled from start to finish had to leave Mets fans with a great feeling heading into the weekend. As I recapped the events that led to the win and the Mets ultimately picking up a game on...
The Yankees traded Melky Cabrera away, the Braves cut him, but over the last two seasons the Melk-Man has completely turned his career around and become one of the better players in the league.
Where the Yankees and Braves wrong about him? Maybe, but it sounds like Melky needed a kick in the pants in order to take his life seriously away from the diamond which has also helped...
The Future Games have become the best part of the All-Star break and they’re stepping it up this year with some great coaches, one of whom happens to be a former Yankee – Bernie Williams and George Brett.
Brett will manage the United States team while Bernie will manage the Worlds team. There are no Yankees on the Worlds team though as the only Yankee at the game will be Low...
AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees The way that Dellin Betances has pitched this season, he must truly be aiming to become the next “Wild Thing.” Betances showed no control again last night, allowing seven walks and throwing two wild pitches in just 4.2 innings. The rest of the line was decent enough – Betances gave up [...]
AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Ramon Ortiz turned in seven innings of one-run ball, but saw a great effort wasted as the Yankees couldn’t put anything together offensively. Ortiz allowed just five hits and struck out seven. Ronnier Mustelier was one of the few offensive threats, going 1-for-4 with an RBI. Kevin Russo and Chris Dickerson were [...]
This week was likely Chipper Jones‘ final trip to Yankee Stadium in his Hall of Fame career as he is set to retire at the end of the season. So the Yankees decided to honor their foe from the 1996 and 1999 World Series with third base from Yankee Stadium this week.
Derek Jeter, probably the only more popular player in the nation throughout Chipper’s career, and his former...
Most Yankee fans know all about our top pitching prospects like Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances and Jose Campos. Fans that follow our minor league system a little more closely probably know a couple of other guys like DJ Mitchell, Adam Warren, David Phelps, Brett Marshall and the mystery/legend that is Rafael Depaula. One of the biggest strengths in our farm system is the incredible...

The Yankees had an off day yesterday and return to baseball today with a trip across the city for another for another weekend Subway Series against the Mets. The Yankees enter the series coming off of a two-game losing streak, their first since the end of May. They swept the Mets last time when they [...]
CC Sabathia and the rest of the Yankees pitching staff have dominated interleague play in 2012.
It’s generally understood that the American League is well-known for power hitting, while the National League yields consistent pitching.
The Yankees have posted a 168-109 record in interleague play since its advent in 1997, the best in the majors. In fact, the top five teams in interleague...
Raul Ibanez tied the game with a three-run homer, pinch-hitter Eric Chavez came through with a go-ahead shot moments later and the New York Yankees rallied past the New York Mets 4-3 Saturday night to stop a three-game skid.
Riding the long ball again, the Yankees won for the fourth time in five Subway Series matchups this season. The finale is quite an attraction, too, with R.A...
