The New York Yankees defeated the Oakland Athletics 7-2 in the Bronx on Wednesday night to advance to the ALDS. This is the first time that the Red Sox and Yankees will face each other in the ALDS since 2004.
Everyone seems to already be counting the Red Sox out. The exact same thing happened at the beginning of the year. Everyone said that the Yankees would “give them a run for their money”. Or, more famously, that the Yankees “do damage” against the Red Sox.
Regardless of what happens, I’m damn excited for this series.
