NY Mets at NY Yankees
When: 7:05 PM ET, Monday, August 14, 2017
Where: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York
By Gracenote

The New York Yankees were unable to gain any ground in the American League East over the weekend, but they still lead the wild-card race as they enter the four-game Subway Series, which begins when they host the New York Mets on Monday. The Yankees lost the final two contests of their three-game series against Boston to fall 5 1/2 games behind the division-leading Red Sox but still hold a 1 1/2-game advantage over the Los Angeles Angels for the first AL wild card.

The Yankees managed only five hits in Sunday's 10-inning setback, which was their eighth loss in 12 games this month. Rookie Aaron Judge leads the AL with 35 home runs but has gone deep just once in his last 11 contests. The Mets beat up on major league-worst Philadelphia over the weekend, winning three of four in the series - including a 6-2 decision on Sunday in which Curtis Granderson finished a triple shy of the cycle, drove in three runs and scored three times. Michael Conforto has homered in five of his last eight contests and leads all active Mets with 26 blasts.

TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, ESPN, SNY (Mets), YES (Yankees)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Mets RH Rafael Montero (1-8, 6.06 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Luis Cessa (0-3, 4.83)

Montero is winless in his last six starts, including a loss to Texas on Wednesday in which he yielded four runs on five hits and three walks over three innings. The 26-year-old Dominican has suffered four losses since registering his lone victory of the season at San Francisco on June 25, when he allowed one run in 5 2/3 frames. Montero made his major-league debut against the Yankees, taking the loss after giving up three runs in six innings on May 14, 2014.

Cessa is expected be brought up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to make his fifth start of the season and first since July 18, when he escaped with a no-decision after surrendering three runs on four hits and four walks across 3 2/3 innings at Minnesota. The 25-year-old Mexican has not pitched for the Yankees since working 3 1/3 scoreless frames of relief on July 30 against Tampa Bay. Cessa will be facing the Mets for the first time in his career.

WALK-OFFS:
1. Yankees C Gary Sanchez has gone 7-for-19 with two homers and three RBIs during his five-game hitting streak.
2. The Mets purchased the contract of RHP Kevin McGowan from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday to fill the empty roster spot created by Saturday's trade of 2B Neil Walker to Milwaukee.
3. The Yankees recalled LHP Caleb Smith from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and optioned RHP Giovanny Gallegos to the RailRiders.

Because it would not only help salvage a little bit of our season but it would go a long way towards ruining theirs.
The AL East is already slipping away from the Yanx (5.5 games) and if just one or two of the eight mediocrities on their tail could win more than a game or two in a row without
stepping in their own shit then the WC would be in trouble also.

The contenders for the AL WC may not be any good but that race should be fun to watch -- currently there are 9 teams inside a 5.5 game span.
What's kept the Yanx in the lead is that those other eight are spending most of their time beating up each other.

We will be tonight.

What's the over/under on the runs Montero will surrender in the first two innings?

I'm guessing 5.

He'll be fine in the first 2 innings, it's the 4th and 5th that worry me. The 4th more, only because he won't pitch the whole fifth.
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

So you're taking the under!

Not as high as his over/under on strikeouts.
46 in 97 ABs since the ASG.

Not in 2013, though.

  • BoxScore 05/27/13, W, Mets 2, New York Yankees 1, Lyon (W, 2-2)
  • BoxScore 05/28/13, W, Mets 2, New York Yankees 1, Rice (W, 3-3)
  • BoxScore 05/29/13, W, Mets 9, New York Yankees 4, Hefner (W, 1-5)
  • BoxScore 05/30/13, W, Mets 3, New York Yankees 1, Gee (W, 3-6)

Let's make a tradition of sweeping the season series from the Yankees in the summer following a presidential election.

That is, if there are any more presidential elections.

Fifth? He'll be watching the fifth, showered, in the clubhouse. He won't make it out of the third.
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

I really wish I could jump back into IGTs but my current connection is (horrible) wifi and the MLBtv broadcast won't play. If I'm lucky I can get the WOR radio broadcast though. Last night I got it for a few innings. If I can get that for the Skankee game I'll join in. If only to see how far behind in time the action is compared to my feed. lol.

Tonight's game -- and Wednesday's -- will be carried by ESPN if that's of any help.

Yeah, but what'll he do in the second inning?

Terry actually being sensible by DH-ing Granderson and letting Johnny Lags patrol that big center field in the Mausoleum.

Gardner - turning 34 y/o next week but in the midst of the best power season of his career - 19 HRs!!
Hicks - just off the DL, this former 1st round bust (14th overall - 2008) for the Twins has been kind of like 'found money' for the Yanx, particularly with Ellsbury hurt and/or sucking. Good OF, Good arm
Judge - now that he's had two lousy stints (2nd half of 2016, since ASB 2017) and one good one (1st half 2017) which is real and which the outlier is still TBD
Gregorius - also recently off the DL, having his best season to date
Sanchez - dangerous hitter, good arm, lousy catcher. Too bad we're lousy runners
Headley - moved to 1st to make room for T. Frazier. Yanx basically can't wait to get rid of him
Frazier - low average, good power
Torreyes - The hushed-up bastard son of Joe Torre and Jose Reyes. Contact & speed but little power
Wade - Wouldn't recognize him if he and I were the only two stuck on an elevator, his name is either Tyler Wade or Wade Tyler, I'm not sure which.
