Rivalry or Ridiculous

When will the Yankees and Red Sox decide to play a regular, well-pitched, well-defended baseball game? So far I've watched eight hours of Yanks/Sox action since Friday at 7pm. Normally, that'd mean the end of the third game of a weekend set is closing, but not these teams. Nope, we're leading off the 7th inning of game 2.

Nothing seems to go as planned in these games. Here are some crazy examples.

The average time of a major league game is just over 3 hours. Friday night's game was just under 5 hours, and Saturday's game is destined to run over 4 hours itself.

Josh Beckett: 2-1 3.79
Saturday: 6IP, 8ER

The Yankees scored 10 runs before the 8th inning. They went into the 8th behind 12-10.

If you are a baseball fan, and want to know what you're going to get in a team every single day, DON'T watch a game between the Sox and Yanks. If you want 25-run games every time the Red Sox show up, don't get your hopes up. They'll just do it when the Bombers come into town.

Oh yeah. 12-11.
