Let me break some news to those with holding via death clutch to the past. The Red Sox/Yankees rivalry is dead. They've been replaced by the Tampa Bay Rays, and the heat between these teams has been increasing over the past 5 years. In short, there's no love loss between these two rivals.
So, after a controversial call at home plate that directly influenced the outcome of the game (and very likely the AL East standings) the Rays organization jumped on Twitter and tried their best to trash talk in 140 characters or less.
Dear @RedSox scoreboard operator - your standings are wrong. Yours truly, @RaysBaseball.

Not to be outdone by an organization that has as many fans/followers as a boil on the butt has, the Red Sox fired back via their Twitter account with an accurate, and damning statement.
Don't worry @raysbaseball we look forward to seeing you in Tampa in September for our home games ...
BEST OF MAXIM

The win allowed Boston to keep pace with the Rays, who also won. Rookie starter Brandon Workman had yet another impressive outing—going six innings and giving up just one earned run. He had...
Rays pitchers Chris Archer and Fernando Rodney seem to be having a weird chat in the dugout. We’ll never be sure of what the topic of conversation is here, but can let our imaginations explore the possibilities. If only these guys could be miked up during games.

BOSTON — Is it fair to call James Loney‘s 2013 campaign a breakout season?

During his first two partial seasons in Major League Baseball with the Dodgers, Loney had a .915 OPS in nearly 450 at-bats. After that, however, he struggled...

Sox homer happy, win 8-2
Brandon Workman has pitched very well in his first three career starts with the Red Sox, but it took him until Tuesday night to earn the first win of his career. Workman pitched six strong innings with nine strikeouts to give the Red Sox a relatively easy 8-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Boston jumped...
