The Yankees apparently heard my pleas yesterday, finally ending their winless drought against the Red Sox. Mother Nature even gave an assist, providing rain throughout the game that became an absolute downpour right after New York had taken the lead. Hey, sometimes its better to be lucky than good. The Yanks were definitely the former, and if they can take this series against Boston they might be able to convince themselves that they’re the latter as well.

Before the Rivalry concludes its latest chapter on Sunday Night Baseball, take some time to check out the latest articles we’ve prepared.

John follows him with a look at Asdrúbal Cabrera as a potential trade target, Peter dives into how the Yankees’ draft picks did in the latest NCAA Tournament, and Joe delivers the latest social media spotlight.
