    “It’s always going to be amped up between these two teams,” Johnny Damon said. “It’s the best rivalry in sports.”

    “We know that we can get the job done this weekend,” Mariano Rivera said. “It would be nice to do that at home.”

    “Playing these tough games is important this time of year,” Joe Girardi said. “It gives you an idea of what you’re going to face as we move forward here in October.”

    “It’s great for everybody to get that feeling, to play in that atmosphere,” [Joba] Chamberlain said. “October is a little different, so it helps being able to play teams like Boston in this kind of series. Coming down the stretch, trying to finish strong and set the tone will be good. People are going to be getting excited for October, so it’s going to be crazy.”

    Kinda makes you think this is it for the Yankees, and those six games remaining this season against the Royals and Rays, after this series, are just going to be semi-exhibition games…

      I just hope the Yankees play for wins until they clinch the division. Winning two out of three this weekend and getting the magic number down to 1 would be a good accomplishment.

      Just don’t get swept.
