August 20th will be an important day in the American league. On that date the AL East leading Red Sox will play the AL Central leading Indians at Fenway Park. What makes it so special is that it will be the first time this season that these teams will have played each other. Four months into the season and two of the best teams in the AL are finally meeting.
After deciding to stay put at the trade deadline (July 31) having dealt Jeurys Familia on July 22, and Asdrubal Cabrera on July 27, the Mets went out that night and lost 25-4 to the Washington Nationals. It was the worst loss in Mets history.
With the 2018 AL East race in the balance, the Yankees need a wake-up call and they need it quickly. The Red Sox have run away with the first two games of this four game series and if New York doesn't find some fire somewhere, they will be playing for second place over the last 50 games.
As we sit on July 28, The New York Yankees are 65-36, five games behind the Red Sox yet only three games back in the loss column. In recent days the Yankees have bolstered the best bullpen in baseball and have added a veteran starting pitcher who has a track record of success against Boston.

It could be argued that the Yankees and Red Sox are the best rivalry in pro sports. Those of us who have lived through it certainly would agree. When did the rivalry, as it stands today begin, and where is going from here?

I grew up in a time when baseball was the game that every kid in the neighborhood played. There were no soccer or lacrosse leagues. In the summer time we all played baseball. To many in my generation it is still our American past time and the greatest sport in the world. In recent years we have been told that it is a dying sport and that major changes must be made.
The New York Mets split their doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, winning the first game in walk-off fashion 4-3, and losing the second game 3-1.
Noah Syndergaard looked to be in good form during his rehab assignment start with the Class-A Brooklyn Cyclones on Sunday, July 8.
For those of you who know me, I am a diehard Mets fan. As tragic as it may seem, it’s how I was raised. I grew up watching “The Amazins” (if we can even still seriously call them that) with my dad. My dad is a Mets fan, so I am a Mets fan. Simple as that. Consequently, my sister Rebecca is, or maybe now I should say WAS, a Mets fan too.
It’s been a while since Mets fans have seen Yoenis Cespedes on the field. Cespedes has been on the disabled list since May 14, battling soreness in his right hip flexor and quadriceps. Fans finally have something to be excited about, as the all-star outfielder started a running program in Port St. Lucie earlier this week.
