Even though they aren’t opponents in this season’s ALCS, the Red Sox and Yankees are still taking shots at each other.
On the anniversary of Boston’s come-from-behind win in the Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, the team’s Twitter account shared a video of Dave Roberts’ critical stolen base in the ninth inning — the play that arguably saved the Sox from getting swept and sparked their historic World Series run. To commemorate the special day, the tweet read: “Today’s basically a holiday…”

The Yankees, however, clapped back with a timely burn, as they have many times before. Still in contention for the American League pennant, they responded: “Ah, work day for us. Game time is 5:08pm, if you’re not busy.”
Ah, work day for us. Game time is 5:08pm, if you're not busy.
