New York Yankees and New York Mets will meet again today at 4:10 pm (ET) at Citi Field in New York City, for their series opener of the 2020 MLB regular season. Here, you'll find everything there is to know about this game.
The Yankees are coming off dropping two out of three games vs. the Rays, a major blow for their aspirations of winning the AL East. Also, they'll be without star closer Aroldis Chapman for the next two games due to a suspension.
The Mets will be mourning the passing of team legend Tom Seaver and will try to honor him by taking the first game of the Subway Series tonight, although Robert Gsellman is far from being their most reliable starter.

New York Yankees vs New York Mets: Storylines
The Yankees enter this game with a 20-15 record (7-8 on the road) and have clearly cooled off after their solid start of the season. They'll send J.A Happ to the mound to try and get the ship back in track after a tough couple of days.
Happ is 4-2 with a 3.41 ERA in 12 games (10 starts) vs. the New York Mets and is coming off a solid outing vs. them last Saturday, as he tossed 7.2 scoreless innings but left the mound with a no-decision.
The New York Mets, on the other hand, are just 16-21 and 7-10 at home this season. They've been dysfunctional on every single aspect a franchise could be and Tom Seaver's passing made it even tougher for Mets fans this year.
Robert Gsellman will take the mound for the Mets and even though his numbers haven't been good this year, he's got a 1.65 ERA in 7 games (2 starts) vs. the Yankees. He's yet to record a decision.
