After wrapping up a series against their big AL East rival, now the Yankees get one against their crosstown rival. Over the next four days, the Yankees and the Mets will meet, with two games coming in the Bronx, followed by two in Queens. With several pitchers down, the Yankees are forced to call on Luis Cessa to start tonight's game, which is not ideal. However, Mets' starter Rafael Montero hasn't exactly been great either. Considering all that, prepare for a pitcher's duel or something dumb.
