• Yankees: A-

The only unit that comes close to touching the dominance of the Mets starting staff is the offense that resides at Yankee Stadium, but the bullpen isn’t too far behind.

Even with Andrew Miller sidelined for several weeks, the sheer power of Dellin Betances has been on full display since his arrival in 2014. Imagine how batters will feel when the cold of October comes and they have to think about facing Miller and Betances late in games.

Sprinkle in a little Justin Wilson and Adam Warren and the unit has pitched to a 3.45 ERA with an MLB-leading 316 strikeouts out of the pen.

  • Mets: B+

Surprisingly, the Mets bullpen has a much better ERA than the Yankees (2.77 as opposed to the Yanks 3.45).

Jeurys Familia has taken the city by storm, fully grabbing a hold of the Mets closing situation.

Still though, the Yanks will get the top nod here purely based on the fact the Miller-Betances duo is downright scary and the Mets lower-tiered guys leave a lot to be desired at times.
