Big wins for the Sox, but I believe they and the Yankees are going to swap the lead back and forth all year.

 What has been surprising to me is how many tickets the scalpers still have after the game has started... The last few years it seemed like you couldn't get any tickets at all, now there seems to be a ticket for cheap whenever you want one.
There's still tickets available for the Cubs/Yankees series which surprised me, but I really think the scalper...err ticket brokers, have finally hit a level on prices that fans are finally saying fuck you to

I had to pay a fortune on StubHub for mine but I couldn't risk flying into Chicago without a ticket in hand.  If it was a 20-minute subway ride that would be different.  So I needed to get my ticket ahead of time and the scalpers raped me by buying them all up in seconds and then inflating the price instantly.  And StubHub somehow is not only legal but fully endorsed by MLB.
