Red Sox vs. Yankees ATS Picks

The best rivalry in baseball gets another chapter, as the Boston Red Sox visit the New York Yankees on Friday night on MLB Network. The Red Sox have a slight lead over the Yankees in the AL East, so this is a huge series. Boston has played much better recently, as their offense has started to kick into gear but their lead over the Yankees in the division is just a few games.
