With the regular season finished up, both the Mets and the Yankees find themselves in the playoffs. That hasn't happened since 2006. At the start of the season, a lot of people didn't think the New York teams would have a horse in the race. But now the Mets are first place in their division and the Yankees have a wild-card playoff game tomorrow to get to the divisional round. There's a long road ahead for sure, but New Yorkers are already enamored by the idea of a Subway Series.
