Gresh explains why even with the Yankees improved, The Rivalry will not be renewed until the playoffs.

The Red Sox and Yankees meet for the first time this weekend but Andy Gresh says the so-called "Greatest Rivalry In Sports" really isn't one until they meet in the playoffs.

"What you need is a moment in an American League Championship Series where both sides can say, 'They screwed us!' 'We got screwed!' or whatever it is, and get the fans back at it," Gresh, of 98.5 The Sports Hub's Gresh & Zo show, told Gary Tanguay on Arbella Early Edition. "It really wasn't the players that were after each other it was more the fans who would get after each other..."

Said Tanguay: "Ever since Steinbrenner died it just hasn't been the same. He used to toss bombs. When the Boss was around there was always something to read."

What do you think? Is The Rivalry dead or alive or just dozing off until the postseason? Let us know with your comments.
