Potential World Series match-up in May?

Share |

They might not be tearing their respective divisions up right now, but both the NY Yankees and NY Mets are expected to be in the thick of the Playoff race come October. The Yankees have struggled throughout the first two and a half months of the season. They currently sit one game under .500 at 20-21 overall, and find themselves 3.5-games in back of the AL East leading Tampa Bay Rays. That’s right, Tampa Bay! As for the Mets, they’ve churned out a winning record thus far compiling a 20-18 SU mark and sit two-games in back of the surprising Florida Marlins for the top spot in the NL East.

Game one of their series pits Mets prized off-season acquisition Johan Santana and his 4-2 mark against the Yankees Darrell Rasner who’ll be making his third start for the pinstripes this season. It was almost a year ago to the day that Rasner took a comebacker off his hand from the Mets Endy Chavez that broke his finger and ended his 2007 campaign. Expect him to be very sharp if any balls come flying back at him this time around.

Game two pairs a couple of lefthanders against one another in the Mets Oliver Perez and the Yankees Andy Pettitte. Perez comes into this start 3-3 with a 4.61 ERA while Pettite counters with a 3-4 record and 4.40 ERA. With each club struggling to hit lefties this season, the under might be a fantastic option in this match-up.

ESPN has decided to broadcast the final match-up of the series when the Mets John Maine looks to improve his 5-2 record against the Yankees Chien-Ming Wang who lost his first Yankee Stadium start of the year back on May 7th.
