Yankees vs. Red Sox Rivalry

Thanks to The Feed for the above pic.

Who who would have thought at the end of May, that the most exciting (or nerve wracking, depending on your point of view) story in baseball this season, would be the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry? At their lowest point in the season, the Yankees were 14.5 games behind the high flying Red Sox. The Red Sox have been the number one team in the Majors all season long, maintaining the best record in baseball for almost the ENTIRE season!

These two teams just finished off their season series with the Yankees eeking out the advantage, winning 10 of the 18 games these two faced off.

Now, with just under two weeks left in the season, the Yankees have surged to within 1.5 games of that former 14.5 game lead! Both teams have their Ace starters vying for a 20-win season, Boston’s Josh Beckett has two games left and is sitting on 19 wins, while New York’s Chien-Ming Wang also has two games to pitch and has 18 wins.

It looks like again this year, both of these teams will make the postseason, the question now is who will win the division and who will get the wild card.

Both teams have today off, so I can relax, at least for a little while from this whirlwind, but it will all start up again tomorrow.

  1. I wrote a post in June and 2 more since that called this exact scenario. I thought when the Sox got Gagne and took an
    8 game lead, they were over the hump. Surprisingly, Gagne has been a big part of their downfall instead.

  2. I don’t think that they should have traded Gabbard for Gagne. I think that he is to old and that he has had to many injuries. Also Gabbard was 4-0 when we traded him.

  3. The Yankees didn’t surge. They beat up on bad teams. The Red Sox have not played great baseball since the first month of the season. The only reason we had that lead was because everyone was healthy and because the Yankees didn’t care about winning.

    You make it sound like the Red Sox are now all of a sudden falling a part after being perfect for 5 months and that is a complete load of hooey.

    Curt Schilling said it best. “We will see what this team is made of the last 9 games of the season”
