Yankee and Sox fans make out

The stars are almost aligned. But before we can live through another Red Sox-Yankees ALCS, both teams have to get to the post-season. And before that happens: a final, cataclysmic end-of-season fight to the finish. (There’s also the matter of one of them getting the wild card, but whatever. That’s another show.)

For now, we’re talking to Red Sox bloggers and to Yankees bloggers, and we want to line them up for a show and have them go at it. Like a cage match, maybe. So what are your questions? A few for starters:

  1. Whose pitching will stand up? Whose aces will pitch, finally, like aces?
  2. Will the loser of the final series win the wild card?
  3. Are you ready for this, all over again?
  4. Do you care?
