For Boston Red Sox fans, perhaps the only thing sweeter than reaching the World Series is wallowing in the tears of New York Yankees fans.
But experiencing both in the same postseason? Now that’s worth savoring.
The Red Sox, of course, pulled off a gentleman’s sweep of the Yankees in the American League Division Series before doing the same against the Houston Astros in the AL Championship Series. And that, as you might expect, is not sitting well with New Yorkers.

The Red Sox await the winner of Saturday night’s National League Championship Series Game 7 between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers. Game 1 of the World Series is scheduled for Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
As for the Yankees, they’ll probably be off golfing — or something.
