It is no secret to baseball fans that the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees have been rivals for a long time, and they always have no problem filling the stadium when they play each other.

Red Sox CEO and President Sam Kennedy has acknowledged the gravity of this deep rivalry. However, he still respects the Yankees immensely.

“I’m not just saying this because I’m talking to a New York outlet,” Kennedy told the New York Post. “We do admire the Yankees in many ways. I started my career there [as an intern]. John Henry started as an investor. So I learned a lot from my time there. John learned a lot from his time. What Randy [Levine] and Hal [Steinbrenner] and Brian Cashman have done is nothing short of remarkable. They’re consistently competitive, and that’s incredibly impressive. It’s why we hate them so much in Boston.”

Aaron Boone and the Yankees have not been performing well these past few seasons, with the Red Sox defeating the Yankees in the 2004 AL Championship Series and eventually winning the World Series — which ended the 86-year title drought known as “the Curse of the Bambino.”

Boston also defeated the Yankees in the 2018 AL Division Series and 2021 AL Wild Card Game and could be adding their 20th World Series title this year, while The Bronx Bombers won their last World Series back in 2009.
