Bookend series for Sox and Yankees in 2010

By Rick Phillips

The last couple of years it seems like that domestic disturbance we call the Red Sox and Yankees rivalry has been quite quiet of late. Has there not been enough dramatic encounters to respark these two teams dire hate for one another? With the 2009 regular season coming to an end and the Yankees a good chunk of change ahead of the Red Sox, it is safe to say that this rivalry has become quite out of sight, and out of mind.

Major League Baseball has announced the master schedule for the 2010 season, and they are hoping to set these two great franchises up for a year of gruiling competition from first pitch to last. That is right, opening day next year will be at Fenway Park, hosting the New York Yankees and will also be host to the regular season ending series with the Yankees again in Boston. Although the schedule seems very favoring to the Red Sox, years of competition between these two franchises shows that being at home doesn't matter between the Sox and Yankees. Winning is what matters and at all costs, home or away.

Even though most fans are confident in our wild card situation, you can never be to skeptical of the worst that could happen. With the Yankees a clear favorite to win the AL this year, buying their ticket to the World Series. Sox fans would love nothing more, but to spoil all their dreams once again. With what has happened this year in Baseball, and the lack of intensity from last few years. The sport needs these two teams to do battle one last time, for respect and for love of the game. If they dont? Well thats why they set up that schedule for next year, its a brilliant fail safe.
