The Boston Red Sox and New York rivalry is back. The two have had one meeting with more to follow. Tempers have flared and both are and will go to the wire for the AL East.
It’s always about the New York Yankees with Red Sox fans. The rest of the American League East are rivals – as is the rest of major league baseball – but with the Yankees it is and always has been personal. Both teams have had their streaks this season and their injuries. The back and forth between the two will be ongoing all season with head-to-head and scoreboard watching.

With a month in the books, how do they line up against each? This is the April only view with a prediction towards October for each position. Just how do they measure up? We have had a glimpse of both and both look ready to give the Astros a run for the American League flag. Ask the Angels about that.
The beauty is the 19 games against each other and with the Wild Card both will be in the playoffs. Could anything be more baseball enticing than a Red Sox-Yankees playoff? Maybe this will be the year?
