The Yankees are returning home after a ten game road trip in which they won seven out of those ten games. Sure, sweeping the Rays doesn't seem like that much of a feat all things considered. However, taking three out of four games from the Detroit Tigers, and being a few bad plays from potentially sweeping them, is definitely something to be proud of. The offense is doing much better than the first week, the starting rotation has pitched well, and the bullpen is still showing why it is a strength. This is all great news heading into the Subway Series this weekend, as the Bombers have another test in front of them. The Mets, our NL baseball cousins from across the Triboro Bridge, come to the Bronx riding an eleven game winning streak and the best record in the majors. Two hot baseball teams heading into the weekend should make for some exciting baseball. The next stop is 161st St. Yankee Stadium. Stand clear of the closing doors please.
