Baseball Night in America
Yankees and Red Sox are meeting tonight for an exciting series in New York. While the Yankees are 8 games back, there's still plenty of time for them to catch up. They are a very talented team, so anything can happen. You can bet Terry Francona isn't thinking about the playoffs this week. Its one game at a time.
The Yankee and Red Sox rivalry is the best of any sport. Over the past five years the rivalry has intensified, with some Red Sox players joining the Yankees, the most notable is Johnny Damon. There has been numerous quotes between the two owners, with the most notable being called 'the evil empire' by the Red Sox.
How this series plays out will certainly determine if the Yankees will be playing much baseball in October.
