Yankees-Mets Series Preview

The Subway Series is here again.  This of course is more for the fans and the media, but there are some terrific New York baseball storylines to this one.  First thing is first.  The Yanks come fresh off an impressive series win in Tampa Bay, where they seem to never win games. The Mets continue to be a disaster, losing a series to Atlanta and getting no consistent hitting or depth in the starting rotation.  Don't forget, these two teams play two at Citi Field and then hit the Bronx for two at Yankee Stadium in this quirky four-game set.  Here is a Subway Series preview.

Why The Yankees Are In First Place

The demise of the Yankees was written at least a dozen times from February 1 until now.  The injuries, oh the injuries.  But baseball people must not have been baseball people through and through because they forgot that CC Sabathia and Robinson Cano and Mariano Rivera were still around and the bullpen was in tact.  And the division actually wasn't that good if you know how baseball teams win in 2013.  Here are the Top 5 reasons why the Yanks were in first place as of May 13, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST.

Yankees-Royals Series Preview

 

The Yankees and upstart Royals play three in Kansas City. New York comes fresh off a series win in rainy Colorado. Kansas City comes off a series loss to the Orioles in Baltimore.  Here is a Yankees-Royals series preview.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore had a plan a couple years ago.  It was a plan to build through the farm, get pitching with some prospects and build an actual baseball team.  Well, here we are.  The Royals are good.  Are they really good?  Not yet, but even at 18-13 this club is showing early signs that the playoffs are possible, especially with the second Wild Card now in place.  The Yankees will see old Rays pitchers Wade Davis and James Shields in this series, two guys they know well from American League East ball.  Finally, Mariano Rivera returns to the scene where he tore his ACL shagging fly balls last year.

The Andy Pettitte Factor

It's time to start wondering just how good the Yankees will be this year based on three factors.  The lineup hitting in timely spots, health and the depth of the pitching staff.  Andy Pettitte arrives in the last two categories and could realistically be the difference in New York making the playoffs and winning the division.
