2011 Subway Series, Take 2: Yankees Vs. Mets At Citi Field

The Subway Series between the New York Yankees and New York Mets moves to the home of the Metropolitans this weekend, as the Yankees invade Citi Field for three games beginning Friday night at 7:10 p.m. when Jonathan Niese throws the first pitch for the Mets. Ivan Nova will start for the Yankees.

The last time the teams met, back in late May, the Yankees won two of three at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees are feeling good about themselves as they begin this meeting with the Mets. They have won five straight games and 10 of their last 12, own the best record in the American League at 48-31 and have a 2.5-game lead over the Boston Red Sox in the American League East.

The Mets (41-40) are also feeling good these days. They are 9.5 games behind the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East and 5.5 games behind in the wild-card race with six teams in front of them, yet Mets management has surprisingly been talking as though the team will be a buyer rather than a seller at the MLB trade deadline.

Citi Field's cavernous dimensions should help the Mets against the home run-happy Yankees. Here, by the way, is a look at the difference between Yankee Stadium and Citi Field in terms of home runs.
