There are a few things I can give to NYY. Derek Jeter is probably one of the finest players ever to set foot on a baseball diamond. I can't recall a time when Joe Torre ever held Boston in ill regard. And overall, the rivalry is very good for baseball.
I remember when Hideki Matsui broke his wrist in a sickening catch, and I dearly hoped that wasn't season ending, or worse, career ending for him. (Fortunately, it wasn't.) Everyone should have a good outing at the twilight of their career.
