There's only 1 game separating the two (thanks Rays for dropping the last 2!) and I have a feeling that's the way the whole season is going to go.
The Yankees and the Red Sox are going to pass first place back and forth like a joint... and the rest of the AL East will get a contact high.
Oh it would be nice to have a lead... but it's not going to be decided until September... which means winning the season series is even MORE important (see 2005 when the two teams finished tied but the Yankees were the Division Champs because of the 10-9 head to head record.)
Sox have the 5-0 advantage.
Beckett on the hill.
Let's get high.
