The Yankees and Red Sox meet this weekend in the Bronx in a virtual dead heat, meaning this is just the beginning of what should develop into a wild summer.
Each squad is surely primed for another long run of success, though they both may well slow down as the dog days of summer hit full stride. I.e., the games they play against each other matter that much more. Cue the heated rivalry talk, which finally has some backbone behind it.
Indeed, the intensity level is once again palpable when the Yankees and Sox face each other, as evidenced by their early season bench-clearing brawl at Fenway Park. The teams may not hate each other as was seemingly the case in years past, yet the fire on both sides is evident.
