Red Sox vs. Yankees matchups
Jim Davis/Globe Staff
The opinion here -- and it has nothing to do with the home team's 0-6 start, honest -- is that it's much too soon in the new season for the Red Sox and Yankees to be squaring off. The rivals should find their footing before they have to do battle with their chief rival. (Again. Nothing to do with the 0-for-6.) But while we're not quite ready for the Sox and Yanks to match up, it's never too soon to judge the individual matchups, right? So let's have at it: A position-by-position breakdown of the two squads. Be sure to take the polls to pick who you think has the edge at each position.
