Sliding Into Home:
The Red Sox have had their way with the Yankees this year, winning 6 of 9 games. Hopefully, that comes to and end when the Yankees go into Fenway for this weekend's three game series. The Yankees trail Boston by 8.5 games in the Division and 5.5 games out of the wild card. Safe to say, this is make or break time for this year's Yankees. That said, they have played better lately, winning 5 of 7 and 4 of their last 5 so maybe this is the start of something.
Here is a break down of ticket prices for this weekend's series, as well as an image breaking down the remaining 10 games between the two rivals.
8/16 - Avg Price: $178 | Get-in: $30
8/17 - Avg Price: $239 | Get-in: $70
8/18 - Avg Price: $152 | Get-in: $35
This week's series in Boston is currently averaging $176 for the three games, which is 64% above the $107 average price for Red Sox tickets at home this season. Prices are also 68% above the average for Yankees tickets for the series in the Bronx in early September.

Signed earlier in the day, Mark Reynolds delivered at the plate for the Yankees on Friday.
Reynolds, 30, had gone homeless over the final 22 games he spent with the Cleveland Indians. That was all put to the wayside as Reynolds hit a two-run home run in his first at-bat against Boston starter Felix Doubront.
Later in the game Reynolds added an RBI single.
While Reynolds may not hit...

‘If I’m going down, so are others’, seems to have been Alex Rodriguez’s frame of mind when he reportedly had his boys purchase documents implicating Brewers slugger Ryan Braun and Yankees teammate Francisco Cervelliand, then had them leaked after of a story came out in the Miami New Times about Rodriguez’s own PED misdeeds.
When asked if shortstop Derek Jeter will rejoin the New York Yankees' lineup by Sunday night, manager Joe Girardi told reporters -- including Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York -- that he "wouldn't think so." The skipper also wasn't willing to commit that Jeter will be available in time to be activated next week, as he continues to recover from the calf ailment...
These are some serious allegations.
A-Rod's new lawyer tells NY Times that team told doctor operating on him to make sure he never gets on the field again. Yanks deny charge.

A-Rod lawyer: Yanks prez Randy Levine told doc operating on him: "I don't ever want to see him on the field again." Crazy allegation.
Mark Reynolds, Alfonso Soriano and the rest of the Yankees got their hacks in Friday night, but if Red Sox fans had to pick any pitcher to come to the mound to halt Boston’s three-game losing streak (aside from a healthy Clay Buchholz), it would be John Lackey.
Despite having not recorded a win since July 12 and not faring all that well in his last outing against the Bronx Bombers...
On this day in 1933, New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig played in his 1,308th consecutive game, breaking former Yankee Everett Scott’s record for consecutive games played. Gehrig would go on to play in 2,130 games in a row, a record that would stand for over 50 years. Cal Ripken, Jr. broke Gehrig’s record on September 6, 1995 against the Anaheim Angels when Ripken played...
Coming home to face the New York Yankees should provide the Boston Red Sox with plenty of motivation to bounce back from a rough road trip.
Looking to avoid matching a season-high third straight defeat, the Red Sox try to continue their season success against the archrival Yankees on Friday night.
Boston (72-51) has a two-game lead over Tampa Bay in the AL East, but went 4-6 at...
BOSTON — As the case against Alex Rodriguez as a baseball player and human being grows, the Yankees slugger was left taking a wide range of questions Friday night.
Rodriguez fielded queries about the latest accusations against him, a 60 Minutes report that he implicated teammate Francisco Cervelli and Brewers star Ryan Braun in MLB’s Biogenesis investigation. But he also was...

Thank goodness we have The World Wide Leader to keep us 'up to speed' on the really important aspects of sports. ESPN imparted the following wisdom to us today: Since the release of Good Will Hunting, the Red Sox have never won a game on Ben Affleck's birthday (today, August 15th). Really? Maybe ESPN is already feeling the pressure from this week-end's premier of...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here...
highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as
satisfying as a good morning dump.
Jake Peavy blamed himself, mostly for the cutter he left up in the
strike zone for the game-tying hit. Will Middlebrooks took his share of
the responsibility, too, after not fielding a hard-hit one-hopper...
