Yankees GM Brian Cashman made an interesting observation ahead of his team’s series against the rival Red Sox, asserting, in part, that New York was the only team that has done “some damage” when it played Boston this season.
Brian Cashman on the Red Sox: “You wonder what their record would be if they weren’t playing us. Because when we go head to head, we do some damage against them and it doesn’t seem like anybody else is capable.”

Fast forward to Thursday at Fenway, where the first-place Red Sox dismantled the second-place Yankees, 15-7.
Rivals don’t forget. These days, they take to Twitter.
On cue, the Red Sox’s social media offered a succinct postgame recap tweet: “Damage done.”

Interesting choice of words.
Might be worth a follow over the next three games, in fact.
