In case the Yankees needed a reminder, Johan Santana showed them how dominant he can be.

Santana will be a week removed from pitching the first no-hitter in Mets history when he takes the ball for the opener of the Subway Series at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.

"He's always a great pitcher," Mark Teixeira told The Post. "When he's healthy, he's one of the best pitchers in baseball, and he showed that with his no-hitter."

The Mets ace has thrown consecutive complete-game shutouts.

"Obviously, [Santana's] going to have a lot of momentum going," Curtis Granderson said. "That's the beautiful thing about baseball, you have the opportunity to go out there and either redo or change what you did the last time out there. Hopefully, we aren't on the other end of a no-hitter."
