Yankees or Red Sox?
OK people, the Yankees fans have gone. It’s safe to come out now.
They have taken their swollen pride and their “Hip, Hip Jor-Heys” and headed back up Interstate 95 for another year.
You only have to suffer through three more Red Sox games at home this month before you can reclaim Camden Yards.
Yeah, that Blue Jays series in October is going to be rocking.
Three-quarters of the park this week was filled with Yankees fans – par for the course these days. They did their thing, too, cheering everything pinstripe. But I’ll stay on record that Yankee fans are much more tolerable in 2009 than Red Sox fans. Not even close.
We’ve done this topic before, and most of you agree with me.
But here’s my question for today: The Yankees and Red Sox are, again, clearly among the best teams in the American League. They’ll both likely make the playoffs, meaning there’s a 50 percent chance one will get to the World Series.
I want to know which is the lesser of the two evils. Right now. In 2009.
Would you rather have the Yankees, who last won a world championship in 2000 but have 26 overall, get to the World Series?
Or would you still rather see it be the Red Sox, who have won two since 2004?
You don’t get an alternative option of swallowing cyanide in late October.
It’s a simple question. Two choices. One painful answer. If you had to choose – and I am making you – who would you rather see win the 2009 World Series?
