The Subway Series kicks off as the New York Mets visit the New York Yankees for the holiday weekend.

The Subway Series kicks off this 4th of July weekend with the New York Mets and New York Yankees in a somewhat similar position. The Yankees are looking for a big weekend after an awful, awful loss to the Los Angeles Angels Wednesday that drew the ire of owner Hal Steinbrenner. Meanwhile, the Mets have lost four of five, including a 20-2 drubbing from the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.

Oddly enough, the Mets remain in first place in the NL East despite their struggles. The Yankees, however, are fourth in the AL East and an ugly nine games back.
