Round 2 of the 2012 Subway Series kicks off (whoops, wrong sport) tonight at Citi Field. The Yankees (41-27, 1st place in the AL East) take on the Mets (38-32, 2nd place in the NL East) beginning tonight at 7:10 PM. The Yankees swept the Mets two weeks ago in the Bronx.
Mets closer Frank Francisco added extra fuel to the fire by referring to the Yankees as “chickens.”
“I can’t wait to strike out those chickens,” Francisco told the New York Post. “I want to strike out the side against them. I’ve done it before.”
