Baseball's third weekend of the 2009 season offers up the first meeting between the sports biggest rivals, the Yankees and Red Sox.

Nothing says "intense baseball" more than when these two teams get together. Most often it doesn't even matter what the clubs' records are, the disdain with which they view one another trumps all.

In this case, both teams come in playing well, so it should be an exciting three-game set.
