The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants will -- weather-permitting -- play a double-header Monday at Citi Field beginning at 4:10 p.m. ET. It's on old-fashioned one -- back-to-back games -- rather than one of those day/night split double-headers. If you are headed out there, bring an umbrella. There is a 40 percent chance of showers this afternoon, so you might get wet. Oh, and if you don't like a wet tushy, a blanket to sit on is also a good idea. See, here at SB Nation New York we care about your health and comfort.
The rain did not allow the New York Yankees to beat up on the Boston Red Sox for a third straight game on Sunday night. Jeff Freier has an interesting take on the two games the Yankees and Red Sox did play over the weekend. The Yankees open a three-game set in Arlington vs. the Texas Rangers Monday night.

Rangers Try To Stave Off Elimination
It wasn't supposed to be this way for the New York Rangers, the top-seeded team in the NHL's Eastern Conference when the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs began. The Rangers trail the Ottawa Senators, 3-2, and must win Monday night in Ottawa to extend their season. SB Nation New York's Chris Celletti says it would help if the Blueshirts could muster a little offense.
NBA Season Winding Down
The New York Knicks topped the Atlanta Hawks, 113-112, Sunday as Carmelo Anthony had 39 points and Amare Stoudemire 22. The regular season ends this week and yes, the New Jersey Nets actually are required to play their final two games.
