The Subway Series took center stage this weekend in New York, with former Chicago Cubs Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez back together on the field – although playing for separate teams. As many will never forget, Rizzo and Baez were traded away at the deadline this season and the two former Cubs linked up for a sentimental hug at first base during Friday’s game.
Since leaving Chicago, Rizzo has batted .255/.328/.455 in the Bronx with six home runs and 17 runs driven in. The Yankees have soared in the standings and enter action Monday just one game back of a wild card spot in the American League. As for the Mets, who were looking to make a postseason push of their own, they’ve faded – and sit three games out of the wild card and five out in the NL East.
