    It has to be Dodgers/Giants. The red sox have not even been in the playoffs for years now and have turned into one of the worst teams/organizations in baseball. The rivalry with the always in contention Yankees will be on hold for who knows how long. Too bad. It is barely even fun when we beat them now.
    Hope they get better.

    Like someone said already the Dodgers and Giants fans really do hate each other... I live in Central CA, Which is covered in Orange and as you can tell I wear the Blue proudly... No NY/BOS game has ever had a hitter charge the mound and take out the catcher with a bat like Marichal did... Dodger/Giants carried over from NY when both teams moved West... Just nobody really outside of the west coast sees is because all sports channels focus on nothing but the AL East... 30 min shows you have 24 mins of Yankee/Red Sox highlights and fit 28 other teams into 6 mins...

    The Giants won the world series but MLB TV, Sports Center and everything else wanted to talk about Bobby V being fired...

    Dodgers/Giants hands down... THE BEST in all of sports

    Someone brought this up during the year...

    but if you combine the number of HOF'ers for the Red Sox and Yankees... they are completely dominated by the number of HOF'ers for the Dodgers/Giants.


    It's not even remotely close. Dodgers/Giants. But the media machines in the east don't pay attention to the west, nevermind that CA is the #1 state in the country both in terms of productivity and population.

    What does amount of Hall of Famers have to do with a Rivalry between two teams? I dont think there is a more hated rivalry in baseball then the Yanks/Sox, especially when the Sox were competitive.

    Agreed, baseball is much more exciting for me personally when Boston is very good.

    I cant speak for California teams as I've never been there, but I just cant imagine it better than the Yanks/Sox

    Could be wrong though.

    this is gonna seem arrogant but i feel like the red sox yankees rivalry attracts a ton of people to baseball i mean look at the world series had the lowest ratings ever i think im not exactly sure why but it could be a posibility people would rather see the red sox and yanks battle it out for the american leagues championship more than most other sporting events. i would say La sf right now but in 2-3 years itll be back to red sox and yanks in the playoffs and both being very competitive.

    Hopefully Blue Jays Yankees can become the new rivalry.

    You think maybe the reason why they're the highest rated games is because espn pushes those games like none other? not to mention every bar in the country has they're T.V.'s tuned to ESPN, Just because the game is on it doesn't mean the people are watching.

    East Coast people don't understand the concept of Esat Coast bias.
