I am by no means a fan of either the New York Yankees or the Boston Red Sox. I think the squads showcase everything that's wrong with baseball. But I have a rather irrational way of showing allegiance. And that's the main reason why I want the Bronx Bombers to obliterate the Philadelphia Phillies.
You see, the Phillies beat my beloved Tampa Bay Rays last year. Sure, I like the Chicago White Sox more than the Devil Rays. But this was probably the only chance in history for the usually floundering franchise to succeed. And the fact that a Philadelphia team beat them to the ground? Well, I just can't accept that.
So in short, go Yankees. Destroy the Phillies. It's for the greater good.
