The Yankees vs. the Red Sox. Each baseball season begins and ends with unique intensity, focused on a single question: What's ahead for these two teams? One, the most glamorous, storied, and successful franchise in all of sports; the other, perennially star-crossed but equally rich in baseball history and legend. In The Rivals sports writers of The New York Times and The Boston Globe come together in the first-ever collaboration between the two cities' leading newspapers to tell the inside story of the teams' intertwined histories, each from the home team's perspective.
Beginning with the Red Sox's early glory days (when the Yankees were perennial losers), continuing through the Babe Ruth era and the notorious trade that made the Yankees champions (and marked the Sox with the so-called "Curse of the Bambino"); to Ted Williams vs. Joe DiMaggio; Thurman Munson and Carlton Fisk; Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez; down to last year's legendary playoff showdown, The Rivals captures the drama of key eras, events, and personalities of both teams.
And who better to tell the story than the baseball writers of the two rival cities? For The New York Times, it's Dave Anderson, Harvey Araton, Jack Curry, Tyler Kepner, Robert Lipsyte and George Vecsey who report on the Yankee view of the rivalry, while The Boston Globe
loch's Gordon Edes, Jackie MacMullan, Bob Ryan and Dan Shaughnessy recount the view from the Hub. And their stories are richly illustrated with classic photographs and original articles from the archives, capturing the great moments as they happened. For Red Sox fans, Yankees fans, or anyone interested in remarkable baseball history, The Rivals is an expert, up-close look at the longest, and fiercest of all sports rivalries.

RED SOX ARE BETTER I WOULD RATE THIS BOOK 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,001 STARS IF I COULD! YANKEES SUCK HANDS DOWN SO SHUT YOUR PIEHOLES ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That statement was incorrect. The statement was backwards because the Boston Red Sox are better than the New York Yankees. The Red Sox just won the 2013 world series. They also went from last to first from the 2012 season to the 2013 season. John Farrell is an awesome coach for the Boston Red Sox. I think that he dhould stay in Boston like Terry Francona did. He should stay to see i the Red Sox can win anymore world series titles. They were an awesome team this year. Even though that the leading stolen base guy(Jacoby Ellsbury) is gone it doesn't madder. This book was great.
