    Which teams do you feel have the strongest, 'Most Bitter Rivalry' in Major League Baseball today?
    What makes your favorite rivalry so special to you and what do you think is needed to make a rivalry stand the test of time?


    My Personal Opinion:

    "THE" rivalry began over 100 years ago. Ever since it has taken on a life of its own! It starts with the owners, to the front office, coaching staff, players, right down to their fans (past & present). Unlike some other rivalries, these two teams have never relocated to, or from another city since their inception into the league. With the exception of numbers being added to the jersey's back, their basic team uniforms have remained the same since the Titanic sunk!
    I feel no other rivalry can match this historic Boston Red Sox - New York Yankee rivalry.

    Especially when in 2004, the Red Sox made MLB playoff history as the first team ever to come back from a 0-3 games deficit to win the American League Championship Series. Oh, BTW, their opponent was the New York Yankees. That historic comeback enabled them to go on to win their first World Series in 86 years by sweeping the Cardinals. The Red Sox followed up their 2004 Championship with World Series titles in 2007, 2013 and 2018.
    To me, this rivalry is not only the best in MLB but in all American pro sports.

    Nathan Eovaldi says Alex Cora’s phone calls played a role in his re-signing

    "I wanted to come back and experience that again, hopefully, be a part of it this year and win another World Series."

    The Red Sox are World Series Champions Again and troll their N.Y. rivals.


    Winning the World Series always comes with a blowout celebration, that's no surprise.

    But this year, the Red Sox added something to the usual champagne shenanigans --

    they played Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" in the clubhouse after
    their final win.

    This was a callback to a moment from the ALDS: After the Yankees' one and only victory against the Sox


    Aaron Judge played "New York, New York" at Fenway Park.

    Did this doom the Yankees forever? Could this be the beginning of their own 86 year "Curse"?

    Hey Spanky, nice to hear from you. You can't imagine how much I wished you were here this season. Especially when we swept you 4 straight and increased the division lead to 9.5 games... (but I digress)
    Why would you, of all people, ever pick MLB's best team to beat your,
    very distant second place team?
    Anyway, I believe in all playoff series, game #3 is pivotal. Whoever gets a 3 run lead first, should win the game...

    Red Sox rally in 9th, win in 10th

    The Red Sox rallied for 3 runs in the 9th and won on Andrew Benintendi's walk-off single in the 10th.


    CLEAN SWEEP! Ya baby!!!!!!

    What was supposed to be an extended series between two of the sport's best teams has instead been a one-sided affair. The Red Sox have won all three games by at least three runs. Should the Red Sox win again Sunday, it'll be about time to put the Yankees' divisional hopes to bed.

    At that point, the Yankees would trail the Red Sox by 9 ½ games in the American League East. With 52 games remaining after Sunday, the Yankees would have to go on an unlikely tear, as well as have the Red Sox plummet. To illustrate that point, consider that the Yankees can go 36-16 -- that is, play like a 112-win team -- the rest of the way. But, if the Yankees lose Sunday, they'd need the Red Sox to go 24-25 in order to win the division outright. Considering Boston entered Sunday with 34 losses, that outcome is ... well, improbable.
