The calendar reads June 9, and the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are once again prepared to battle in a three-game series.
New York will certainly be looking for payback after Boston swept the Yankees at Fenway the last time around on April 24-26, and they come in playing much more consistent baseball.
Terry Francona’s Red Sox are far from slumping, however, and should pose as challenging an opponent as is always expected of them—especially in a home ballpark that they seemingly never lose in.
This time around, the Yankees are determined to prevent a repeat of recent history. Luckily for them, there are at least five reasons why they can begin to calm their nerves.
Here is a list of extenuating circumstances from the first Fenway series that should no longer be factors over the next few days.
Any feedback and suggestions are always welcomed and requested, especially from the always confident members of Red Sox Nation.
