Red Sox vs. Yankees Is the Least Interesting Series This Weekend

As a diehard Boston Red Sox fan, I used to circle my team's games against the Yankees on the calendar at the beginning of the season. They were appointment television.

In 2012, they have become the equivalent of a trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles. This particular addition of the nominal greatest rivalry in sports has become a joyless and lifeless exercise in drudgery.

The Red Sox are a bad team. Sorry, my fellow Boston fans. A team with a losing record in mid-August is a bad team, not a contender.

The Yankees are cruising to another division title, and yet everything in their pitching staff is pointing to this being another 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010 or 2011. They will gave a great regular season, and probably a quick October exit.

This series features very few cast members from the years when it truly mattered. In fact, it could be the least interesting series being played this weekend.

There are more compelling reasons to watch any other series than the team wearing Red Sox uniforms playing the team wearing Yankee uniforms.
