First Fenway Experience for a Fan of the Enemy

If you haven’t figured it out by now then this is the first article of mine you are reading — I am a Yankees’ fan. As a bit of a stats geek, I pride myself on my objectivity, but even I have tendency to favor the Universe over the Nation in the more arbitrary debates. … Continue reading
