Fans of the Boston Red Sox chant against the New York Yankees

Prior to the postseason this year, the Red Sox and the Yankees faced an arduous path in the regular season. In the last few games, they competed for two wildcard spots along with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Seattle Mariners.

Both teams suffered a few losses, which saw their rival fans get on their backs on more than one occasion. Ultimately, both teams made the AL Wildcard game with identical 92-70 records. On October 5th, the Red Sox scored an impressive 6-2 victory over the Yankees to meet the Rays in the ALDS.

And they went one better this past Monday, as they stunned the Rays 3-1 to progress to the ALCS. Despite beating the Yankees nearly a week ago, Monday’s game saw Red Sox fans berate the Yankees, as a chant of “Yankees s**k,” broke out in Fenway Park.

With the Red Sox stunning the Rays, they now wait to find out who their opponents will be in the ALCS, which could either be the Chicago White Sox or the Houston Astros. Should they produce more victories in the best-of-seven series, one can expect these chants to get even louder.

Yankees still in doubt over manager Aaron Boone’s future

While the Red Sox march on in the postseason, the Yankees find themselves in a situation of wondering about their future. Following their loss to the Red Sox, the future of their manager Aaron Boone has been the subject of many questions.

Boone forged an excellent reputation since joining the iconic franchise in 2018. In fact, his exploits in the last four seasons see him linked to the San Diego Padres, who finished third in the NL West division this season.

In his first two seasons with the Yankees, Boone saw the team garner over 100 wins in the regular season. While he saw the team reach the playoffs in every season, he failed to reach the World Series with them.

However, should the Yankees decide to let him go, he could be an excellent fit for the Padres. With stars like Fernando Tatis Jr. in the team, could the Padres be in contention to make the playoffs next season with Boone at the helm?
