Just like the first Subway Series at Yankee Stadium earlier in the year, this Citi Field Subway Series will be decided by a Sunday night ESPN game. You know, because of course it will be. Ah well, there's no Curt Schilling in the booth at the very least. In any case, it's amazing what has transpired for both teams since the first series between the Yankees and the Mets. We here at Pinstripe Alley would like to let it be known that our new intern/coffee fetcher Anthony E. Lope has gone over the data and determined that the Yankees will at least split this year's Subway Series with the Mets. If they win tonight, they will have taken four games out of six from them. Not that this really matters of course. Our primary concern are the Blue Jays and the Wild Card teams behind us. That is the primary reason why it is important the Yankees win this series against the Mets.

Song of the Day
Sound and Music by Beck
It's Cover Songs Week on Pinstripe Alley. This week will feature cover songs galore. Today's entry is Beck covering David Bowie's classic Sound and Music. (It doesn't really get started until the 2:00 mark, if you want to skip ahead). As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. CC Sabathia will take the mound tonight for the Yankees. With his new knee brace, he has seemed like the Sabathia of old lately. Here's hoping it continues, as he will be facing the excellent and controversial Matt Harvey.
