Yankees-Red Sox

The Yankees and Boston Red Sox have a century-old rivalry. It all began in 1918 when Sox decided to trade Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The Sox fans believe that Babe Ruth’s trade to the Yankees left a Bambino Curse on the Boston team, who had to wait for 86 years to win a championship title post the trade. Hence, for decades, both teams have restrained from engaging in direct trade during the off-season.

However, this might be the jinx-breaking year between the two rivals. As the off-season is coming to an end, spring training will begin soon, and the rosters of the respective teams will be put to the test. Moreover, the spring training will determine the exact lineup for the opening day. However, ahead of the training, Boston Red Sox have received a fresh blow as their infielder, Trevor Story, is out for the first half of the season.


Can the Red Sox Ask The Yankees To Trade Isiah Kiner-Falefa?

The love-hate relationship between Boston and the Yankees is second to none. Meanwhile, ahead of the spring training, Red Sox confirmed that Trevor Story would miss the first half of the season after undergoing elbow surgery. Hence, the roster is left with a hole in the midfield. However, there is an option available for the Red Sox in the trade window if they are willing to keep their pride aside.

For New York Yankees, they are ready for spring training with a near-perfect roster and enough bench players. However, after the spring training, the Yanks might be willing to let go of a couple of players. Among them is Isiah Kiner-Falefa. Isiah is a good defensive player but lacks experience. Moreover, the Yankees have enough bench strength to fill in his position. Hence, the Bombers might not get mid to trade him. On the other hand, ESPN’s David Schoenfield feels Isiah Kiner-Falefa is a perfect replacement for Trevor in the Red Sox roster. Hence, the Sox should ask for a trade with the Yanks. But will the Yanks agree after the whole curse myth?

“Hey, how about the Boston Red Sox and Yankees making a trade for Kiner-Falefa? “ said David Schoenfield

Eyeing their controversial history, the trade seems unlikely. However, if the stakes are this high for Red Sox, they should consider keeping their pride aside for one trade. But, on the other hand, the Yankees will be the decision-makers as they have the upper hand. Also, if the trade results in strengthening the rival’s roster, they might prefer to bench Isiah.

To conclude, the ball is in the Yankee’s court if the Red Sox decides to ask in for a trade. We expect some drama to unfold after the spring training. Meanwhile, the spring training will begin in mid-February after the off-season ends.
