The Intense Rivalry of the East


The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry is one of the oldest and most intense rivalries in baseball. In dramatic fashion, the teams will meet next week in a three game series to battle it out for the first place spot in the AL East. The Yankees seem to have been one step behind the Red Sox for the better part of the second half of the season. Offensively, both teams have been strong this season, with Boston ranking first in most RBIs and runs in the league and the Yankees coming in a close second. Defensively, Boston is ranked 16th in overall pitching ERA and Yankees are ranked 8th. Which team do you think will win the series?

I hope the Yankees are comfortable in that second place spot…Boston takes the series two games to one.
