Preview: Yankees vs. Red Sox – March 20, 2013

It’s no secret that the greatest rivalry in all of professional sports has been stale since 2004. There have been no fights, Roger Clemens retired, and A-Rod has been on his best behavior. As much as Manny Ramirez is my least favorite baseball player of all time, but he was good for the rivalry because he gave Yankees fans a reason to detest the Red Sox. Now, I kind of just feel bad for them.
Anyway. Today, Felix Doubront (Bos) and Vidal Nuno (NYY) square off in a rubber match for the ages. The lineups are as follows:

New York Yankees
1. Brett Garnder, LF
2. Eduardo Nunez, SS
3. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
4. Juan Rivera, 1B
5. Ben Francisco, RF
