Rivalry renewed

Here we go again. The Yankees first road trip of the season begins this afternoon in Boston with the first game of a three-game set against the Red Sox. The Yankees just won two out of three in back-to-back series at home. The Red Sox were just swept in back-to-back series on the road.

Boston is 0-6 for the first time since 1945.

“We’re frustrated, because we never thought we’d be here, but we are here,” Kevin Youkilis told MLB.com.

I doubt even the most hardened Yankees fan would have predicted this sort of start for the Red Sox. Of course, I’m not sure records mean a whole lot at this point, and they certainly don’t mean much when these two teams play one another.

One small bit of pregame news: The Red Sox will call-up former Yankees long reliever Alfredo Aceves before today’s game. He’s taking the place of Matt Albers, who’s heading to the disabled list.

Also, don’t forget Sam is hosting a chat this afternoon at 12:30. I’ll try to jump in if and when I can.
