Around the Yankee Galaxy: Looking for the sweep

Mark Teixeira #25 of the New York Yankees hit a two run homer in the ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox on May 8, 2010 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. The Yankees defeated the Red Sox 14-3.

Another pyrrhic victory yesterday for the Yanks. In the midst of a 14-3 drubbing, Al Aceves left the match after straining his back. He's expected to miss at least three games. All these injuries are eventually going to take their toll.

But the biggest distinction of all had nothing to do with income, education or neighborhood. It wasn't what they read or do for fun or prefer as a pet. It was their relationship with alcohol.

Male Mets fans were 43% more likely than Yankees fans to drink beer. They also drink more in general: the percentage of male Yankees fans who said they don't drink was almost double that of their Mets counterparts (30% to 16%).
