SI Players Poll
[Based on a survey of 450 MLB players]
Would you rather play for the Red Sox or for the Yankees?
Red Sox .....47% Yankees .....40% Neither .....8% Don't know .....5%
FAST FACTS: Among players with 10 or more years experience, 54% chose the Yankees, just 30% picked the Sox.... Starting pitchers went for Boston 55% to 36%.... After taking three of four last weekend (page 54), the Yanks are 1,075-896 alltime against the Sox.... Ten active players have been on both clubs: Tony Clark, Roger Clemens, John Flaherty, Tom Gordon, Chris Hammond, John Olerud, Paul Quantrill, Rey Sanchez, Mike Stanton and David Wells.
