Do you really think that the Red Sox offense sits around and watches Yankee games to see if they will do well so they have more reason to hit well in their game? I don't really understand your viewpoint on that one. Baseball players have a lot more crap to worry about other than the box score of a Yankee-Devil Ray game.
I'm neither a Boston fan, nor a Yankee fan but the Red Sox have been chasing the Yankees for a long time. Just look at the deals made this offseason. The Yanks had a bad first game and then exploded in the second. Do you really believe that the Sox are unaware of that? They want to explode too and be mentioned right there every time the Yankees are mentioned this season. So bottom line is "yes" I believe that the way the Yankees are playing will affect the thought process in Boston. Even more so this year with so much invested in the team.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
