The Yankees and Mets are playing a home and home series, Saturday night in Queens and Sunday night in the Bronx, both games 7 pm, both games to be televised on YES and SNY. Although these are meaningless tuneup games that will not count in the standings, they are the final tuneups before the regular season starts next week, and they are also the first non intrasquad games each team has played against an outside opponent since baseball resumed. Because the regular season starts in days, expect each team to start their anticipated regular lineups. Both teams are very good. The Yankees are among the favorites to win the World Series; the Mets appear to have the best lineup in the National League and certainly look like a playoff team. As always, staying healthy and also Covid-free will be a significant factor in the success or failure of each team. I like both NY teams to make the playoffs. I think the Yankees are a little deeper in pitching and have more high end offensive talent, and because of this are probably a greater threat to go farther in the playoffs in what looks like a possible crapshoot of a season.
