Your Team and Interleague Play...
I thought that the Yankees and Mets were at somewhat of a disadvantage in interleague play because they are forced to play each other with so much rivalry and hype behind this series...I'm not one for keeping the "natural rivalries" -- if the AL East plays the NL West, play the whole division...
I saw this though which was pretty interesting:
For whatever reason, the Boston Red Sox don't fare well in Interleague play. They are 43-51 against their NL foes, including 3-6 this season. Perhaps a trip out West against two teams they've never played against -- the Padres and Dodgers -- will be the cure. One thing that has had some bearing on Boston's Interleague troubles is the fact they always play the Braves. The Red Sox are 10-17 in their encounters with Atlanta, and have a three-game series with the Braves at Fenway June 28-30.
I didn't realize the Red Sox have consistently had problems in interleague play. I think the Yankees generally fair well but I'd like to see the stats...anyone know where to find the breakdown of each team in interleague play?
How does your team fair in interleague play? And are you in favor of keeping those "natural rivalries"?
b-ball or luna...
