But Boston - damn - they have been building...

Jeter Passes Yaz In Yankees Loss, But Will He Pass Mo?

Yankeetorial: Two excruciating defeats lead the Yankees into "Mortgage the Future" Week

This weekend, the Redsocks traded the ever-crumbling Jake Peavy for two solid pitching prospects, and there's not a Boston frat-boy in beer pong captivity who doesn't expect his team to rise next year and crush the AL East. Why wouldn't they think such crap? Their farm system produces, and they supplement it holding garage sales. It's not rocket science. It's...

Johnathan Daniel/Getty Images The lightning rod of attention, Alex Rodriguez celebrates his 39 birthday today quietly and without much fanfare. Since his highly criticized fight with MLB and Bud Selig over the Biogenesis scandal, A-Rod has done a good job of lying low and staying out of the media this year.

Their most recent trade was on Thursday for left-hander Chris...
