Sobre o livro
Teddy Ballgame or the Great Bambino? Nomar or Jeter? Clemens or Clemens?
For 115 years, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees have been battling it out on the diamond, playing each other over 2,000 times. This heated rivalry has stood the test of time, as one teams triumph usually means the others dismay. While the teams battle on the field, the fans and cities take the rivalry just as seriously.
Whether its Bucky *^&%* Dent, Aaron *^&%* Boone, Pedro brawling with an aging Zimmer, or the Sox improbable comeback in the 2004 ALCS, the hatred between these two teams has lasted over a century and shows no signs of slowing down.
But whos the best? Which teams players have the edge? Which teams squad would reign supreme? If you ask a New Yorker, youll get an obvious answer; same with a Bostonian. But what happens when two men from opposite sides of the track sit down to discuss who is the best?
Red Sox vs. Yankees pairs baseball historians Bill Nowlin (Red Sox) and David Fischer (Yankees) to discuss who each teams best position player was and which super team would win in a head-to-head series. Obviously, they wont easily agree. Obviously, there will be cheap shots and venom spewed back and forth. But in the end, we will have two teams: one of the greatest players and one of each squads best year.
You can guess that Nowlin will say that the Sox will win, while Fischer is confident that the Yanks will take the W. But its not that easy. Thanks to the great minds from SABR (Society for American Baseball Research), we will have a simulation to find out which team would win in a head-to-head battle. Will the All-Star Yankees take the series? Will the Red Sox pummel the best the Bronx has to offer? Theres only one way to find out.
