Video: Overturned Call The Difference in Yankees 3-2 Win Over Red Sox

Instant replay has seen its share of good and bad over the past few weeks of the 2014 season. The Boston Red Sox saw it go against them on Saturday earning an apology from MLB. And on Sunday night, an overturned call cost them their manager and the game. Francisco Cervelli‘s fielder’s choice RBI in the 4th inning turned out to be the difference as the New York Yankees beat the...

It Was… The Most Interesting Game Ever Played

Red Sox Take On Evil Ones Today At 1:05 PM

And yet, it is the Red Sox versus the Yankees. And it may feature Jacoby Ellsbury in home pinstripes facing his fellow 2013 World Champions (if he isn't hurt). The Red Sox know who...
