A fantasy conjured up by Massholes and other New Englanders who actually believe Yankee fans watch baseball with an eye on beating Boston, while Yankee fans are primarily concerned with winning championships. In a true rivalry, one team wins more frequently than the appearance of Haley's Comet.
Hey, go Sox! We finally beat the Yankees with some half-assed fluke! This Red Sox-Yankees rivalry is really heating up - if we win 20 more championships and the Yankees don't win any, we'll be even!

Greatest rivalry in the history of professional sports. Most years the rivalry ends as somewhat of a draw. This year, the Red Sox have the better team (wait, they usually have the better team every year) and have already taken six out of seven games from the Yankees (see shit). Does not bode well for the Bronx Bombers.
You see the Yankees just bought up every good player they could?

Doesn't matter, since the Sox have the best pitching in baseball.

The most overrated rivalry in sports. No one outside the northeast U.S. gives a shit about it, in fact we're sick and tired of hearing about it.

Here's a list of better active sports rivalries, in no particular order:

North Carolina vs. Duke
Ohio State vs. Michigan
Redskins vs. Cowboys (Bears vs. Packers is overrated)
Maple Leafs vs. Canadiens
Barcelona vs. Real Madrid

and that's just one per major sport. If one wanted to go into more than one per sport, go into the past, and dig through other sports, one could bring up much better rivalries like Ali vs. Frazier, Lakers vs. Celtics, Brazil vs. Argentina, I could go on forever...

Red Sox-Yankees Rivalry is a media creation from obnoxious New Yorkers who think the world revolves around them.

you are a fucking moron. at least 39 times the red sox have not had a better team than the yankees and many more times. and many more times in the future will the yankees have the better team starting with 2005.
the red sox are in agony again (hehe) as the yankees are celebrating yet another world championship.
