Beginning Tuesday night in the Bronx, the Red Sox and Yankees play their second series of the season.
Boston is still in first place but Aaron “Bleepin'” Boone’s team has been on fire and is breathing down the Sox necks.
It’s the first time since 2002 Boston and New York have met with the two best records in all of baseball.
If this were old school baseball, there’s a pretty good chance a Red Sox player might get plunked this series as a retaliation for Joe Kelly nailing Tyler Austin.
Mookie Betts has been the best player in baseball so he would be a likely candidate to get hit. Maybe Jd Martinez. Or Hanley? Or maybe even Brock Holt since it all started with him. If he’s playing.
I’m not betting that the Bombers will retaliate, but I do know Joe Kelly better have a suit of armor with him because the Bronx residents will not be very warm and welcoming. He just may have something thrown at him.
