Would you rather play for the Red Sox or for the Yankees?
Red Sox - 47%
Yankees - 40%
Neither - 8%
Don’t know - 5%
Based on a survey of 450 MLB players
Fast facts: Among players with 10 or more years experience, 54% chose the Yankees, just 30% picked the Sox.... Starting pitchers went for Boston 55% to 36%.... After taking three of four last weekend (page 54), the Yanks are 1,075–896 alltime against the Sox.... Ten active players have been on both clubs: Tony Clark, Roger Clemens, John Flaherty, Tom Gordon, Chris Hammond, John Olerud, Paul Quantrill, Rey Sanchez, Mike Stanton and David Wells
This poll's about what you would assume: Older players want to go to NY to be with the older players and for what they view as the best last chance to win a ring while pitchers don't want anything to do with NY because of it's perceived affect on pitchers.
