Our rivals from Boston aren’t doing so hot. For once, that makes me a little upset. I’m not saying that I’m scared of the Yankees facing the Angels in the ALCS, but I would certainly prefer them playing the Red Sox.
Why? For one, it’s more exciting. Two, the Yankees have won nine of their last 10 against the BoSox. Three, the Angels have always been the kryptonite to the Yankees.
But don’t count the Red Sox out of this series. They get two games at Fenway before heading back to LA, and they have overcome this deficit in the ALDS before.
According to MLB.com’s Ian Browne, “Since 2003, the Red Sox are 13-3 in potential elimination games.” Not too shabby.
