... And a Rivalry is in Hibernation

Eric Wilbur: Another Meaningless Sox-Yankees Game

"In case you havenít noticed, weíre a long way from 2004, when this rivalry hit its apex. Between the Jason Varitek-Alex Rodriguez dustup and the remarkable ALCS comeback, the storied antagonism between the two teams was at an all-time high. It wasnít fueled in the front offices (although the offseason A-Rod chase might have initiated things), but on the field, where a certain distaste between the teams festered. Since then, itís stayed afloat, with moments like Johnny Damonís jumping ship at the forefront. But itís never been as good. Itís difficult to imagine how it possibly can be." -- 3.18.08, Eric Wilbur,
