Memorial Day is one of the bench-marks of the baseball season, as fans can see what their team is like and where they’re going. The Yankees enter today atop the AL East, tied with Boston. The Mets, on the other hand, are 11 games below .500 and searching for meaning in the 2013 season. Both teams will go head-to-head for the next four days in this year’s version of the Subway Series. It begins at Citi Field tonight, with Phil Hughes matching up against Jon Niese. *The Yankees and Mets have played each other 90 times during the regular season since interleague-play began in 1997. The Yankees own a 54-36 record.
