The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees of Major League Baseball have one of the oldest and fiercest rivalries in all of American sports. The rivalry between these cities is as old as America itself. The Red SoxYankees rivalry was born outside the bounds of sport as the cities of Boston and New York competed for the limelight even before the American Revolution. Both cities were among the biggest population centers in the fledgling United States of America. Boston was the closest American port to Europe and was home to several elite schools and manufacturing hubs that gave Boston a positive image. At the same time New York was viewed as an overpopulated Cheap Jake Gardiner Hat , dirty city. As the 20th century approached however, New York became the industrial and economic center of America, powered by Wall Street. This rivalry easily translated into the national pastime.

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees met for the first time on April 26 Cheap Morgan Rielly Hat , 1901. Almost from the beginning, Boston and New York were intense rivals in baseball. The Red Sox, known as the Americans at the time Cheap Tyler Bozak Hat , won the inagural World Series in 1903, capturing four more titles between 1912 and 1918. The Yankees, known as the Highlanders at the time Cheap Frederik Andersen Hat , were perennial bottom feeders with one exception. The two sides met at the end of the 1904 season to decide the AL Pennant, the first of many times that the AL would be decided by these teams. New York s 41 game winner Jack Chesbro was not enough to stop Boston as a wild pitch would give Boston the pennant.

The rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees intensified in the roaring 20s. Despite winning four titles between 1912 and 1918, Boston s new owner Harry Frazee was hard pressed to pay his players at the end of the 1919 season. Frazee purchased the Red Sox in 1916 on a $500 Cheap Connor Brown Hat ,000 credit and the team s sixth place finish in 1919 left Frazee financially pressed. It was at this time that Frazee sold pitcher turned outfielder Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees for $125,000 and a $300,000 loan. Ruth s departure from Boston and arrival in New York would forever change the course of both clubs. In 1920 Boston s five World Series titles were a record Cheap James Van Riemsdyk Hat , but the Red Sox 1918 World Series title would be their last for 86 years. Ruth and the Yankees meanwhile became a force to be reckoned with in baseball. Ruth anchored a Yankees lineup in the 1920s known for its home run hitting prowess, earning the nickname Murderers Row . During Ruth s Yankee career he helped guide the team to seven World Series appearances, winning four titles.

Boston s bad luck continued for more than 80 years. Between 1920 and 2003 the New York Yankees won 26 World Series titles and 39 pennants Cheap Nikita Zaitsev Hat , while the Boston Red Sox won only four pennants. During each of the four pennant winning seasons for the Red Sox in this time period, Boston lost the World Series each of the four times, four games to three. During this same period Cheap Patrick Marleau Hat , the Red Sox finished second behind the Yankees in the standings 12 times, with the Yankees earning better regular season records 66 times.

After 2,064 meetings on the diamond Cheap Zach Hyman Hat , the intense rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees has failed to cool even a little. Since the inception of the Wild Card in the MLB playoffs, the Red Sox and Yankees have met three times including back to back years in 2003 and 2004. The Red Sox ended their World Series in grand fashion in 2004, overcoming a three games to none deficit against the Yankees in the ALCS to advance to the World Series. Boston defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in four games to end an 86 year title drought. After 100 years of pure hatred exchanged between the two sides Cheap Ron Hainsey Hat , there is no sign of giving up from either side. The Red Sox and Yankees are likely to fight tooth and nail with each other for decades to come.



CHICAGO, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) grains futures close mixed on Wednesday, with soybean futures falling to a three-week low on Wednesday, on track for a fourth straight decline on strong South American harvest prospects and a lack of supportive news.


Corn and wheat futures were modestly higher as traders awaited direction from a U.S. Department of Agriculture forum this week in which the government will offer forecasts on what U.S. farmers will plant this spring.


The most active corn contract for March delivery rose 1.75 cent, or 0.47 percent, to 3.71 dollars per bushel. May wheat delivery added 4.56 cents, or 1.39 percent, to 4.56 dollars per bushel. March soybeans fell 3.75 cents, or 0.36 percent, to 10.335 dollars per bushel.


In the outside markets, the Brent crude oil market is 0.72 dollar per barrel lower, the U.S. dollar is lower, and the Dow Jones Industrials are 12 points higher.


Jack Scoville, The PRICE Futures Group's senior market analyst, says that the market has turned a little lower due to little news.


Scoville adds, "Most attention is on the USDA Agriculture Outlook conference and what they will show for planting and stuff like that, over the next couple of days. Most investors do not seem too eager to do much before the USDA' s supplydemand tables come out, although that is a mystery to me since they are just model-based numbers."


Soybeans firmed in early moves but turned lower as traders mulled huge new soybean crops expected in South America. The harvest in Brazil was about 25 percent complete as of Friday, while Argentina's crop is still developing.


Also, U.S. farmers are expected to plant a record number of acres to soybeans this spring, the USDA has said. The government is expected to release an updated forecast at its Outlook Forum this week.


Expectations of a year-on-year decline in U.S. Corn plantings helped to underpin corn futures.


Wheat rose on bargain-buying after a three-session decline, drawing additional support from a pickup in global export business.
