Tonight the Boston Red Sox welcome the New York Yankees to town. These series need a formal name, because every time that it happens for the first time each year; it seems like you just know that the baseball season has officially begun. It’s like a miniature baseball holiday for fans all over the country. Some drama will go down, and it’s hard to know exactly what will happen.
It’s a storied rivalry that we’ve touched on before. After the dust settles sunday, one of these storied monster franchises will have the upper hand heading towards the rest of the season. Either way, it’s hard to argue that this is not just the best rivalry in all of baseball, but in all of sports.
Tonight those that get to witness these games will get to see playoff-atmosphere baseball in April. The second week of the season. It doesn’t get any better than that.
