The conclusion of the first battle between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox is on hold, but we've already seen enough to say that this rivalry is going to be a little one-sided this year.

The Yankees are riding high, while the Red Sox are scrambling.  

There's a "Fire Bobby Valentine" march being organized on Yawkey Way.  Meanwhile, celebrations are being scheduled on River Avenue.

Things do not look good for the Red Sox.  The Yankees, as well as their fans, couldn't be any happier.  The season is still young, but the future does not bode well for the Red Sox if they continue to be beaten by their rivals like this.

I haven't seen a rivalry this lopsided since Batman threw the Joker in jail in the comic books, TV shows and movies.

Looking over the games from the weekend, there's 12 things we've learned about this rivalry and the teams involved so far.   Why 12?  Because it's 2012, and I like to keep things festive by sticking with the 12 theme.

Anyway, here are those 12 things we all learned.
