The 2011 MLB regular season has officially begun, and that means a Red Sox – Yankees matchup can only be days away.
The Boston Red Sox play their first home game of the season this Friday against the New York Yankees. There is plenty to be said about the historic rivalry, but baseball fans from around the country will be interested to see how the new, expensive lineup of the Sox matches up against the Yankees who made very few off-season moves.
