The Yankees essentially took them out of the race with their deadline moves. I didn’t given them much of a chance so I applaud them for being sharp about it.
The Mets are hoping they can rekindle the magic of last year when a late season deal sparked them all the way to the World Series. That might be asking too much.
But either way they have to get things back on track if they want to make the playoffs.
New York Mets
The Mets have won only three of ten heading into Tuesday.
The problem has been the offense and the solution is hopefully Jay Bruce. I like Bruce and it will be interesting to see if he can jump start the offense the way that Yoenes Cespedes did a year ago.
I hope I heard this correct in that he was the first player ever to be traded who was leading his league in RBI at the moment of the trade.
They really need him to produce.
Steven Matz has been good this season.
The Mets were hoping for better but his numbers are firmly in the solid category.
Heading down the stretch they need him to keep making all of his starts because the rotation is not as deep as it was this time a year ago.
On the road he has been a little sharper than at home but nothing significant.
New York Yankees
Even though it was out of character of the Yankees to play for tomorrow most are complimenting what they were able to receive in dealing top line players like Andrew Miller and Carlos Beltran at the deadline.
It is the loss of Beltran that will have the biggest effect because this team was struggling to score with him.
Without it makes this lineup even easier to work through.
The Yankees dealt Ivan Nova to the Pirates and thus have created a hole in their current rotation.
As this is being written no pitcher has been named yet.
Whoever it is will unlikely inspire and further will not be backed by that elite bullpen – only Dellin Betances remains – so a 5 inning effort could be very problematic.

Free New York Mets vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Off the deadline deals the Mets carry all of the momentum into this one. Matz is not the saviour he looked like a year ago but he is still a high quality lefty and the Yankees have a lot of key lefty bats.
It looks like a good matchup.
Until we know who is starting it is hard to make a case for the Yankees here. Maybe they bring someone up from the farm and his unfamiliarity wins the day. The Mets, despite their moves, still have a pretty light lineup.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: New York Mets RL
I am envisioning that the Mets will be heavy favourites in this one making the run line the must way to play if you are going to score a decent payoff. Look for Matz to control the game and for the DH role to make it easy for an extra bat to help them out.
