BACK ON TOP
The world is finally back on its axis, and the Yankees dominate again. If the rotation holds, it's likely that C.C. Sabathia will pitch on Friday night (if not, then probably Saturday). Granted this series doesn't have quite the excitement of the usual YankeesRed Sox close division race of years past, but you could get the satisfaction of seeing the Yanks bury the Red Sox once and for all in 2010. David Ortiz is creeping up at 35 and is already slower than the Lincoln Tunnel on a Friday night, so this might be your last chance to boo Big Papi. StubHub has very cheap seats ($18), but if you want a view of the game, start in the $50 to $70 range.
