in 1919-1920s i think it was, the yankees bought babe ruth from the red sox, now i was wondering if this had anything to do with their ongoing rivalry to this day??

Sure it does. Before the Yankees bought Babe Ruth from the Red Sox, the Red Sox won 2-3 worlds series with the bambino. And after the Red Sox sold Babe Ruth the did not win a World Series until 2004. That's a 86 year drought! Sadly the Red Sox won it again 2007. The rivalry is also fueled by the close games and events that have occured between the 2 teams. GO YANKS!!

yes. cause in 1923 when the yankees aquired the babe, the yankees started winning championships and the red sox couldn't for 86 years. [the curse of the bambino]

No, what's behind their rivalry today is that the Red Sox are a bunch of cheating, headhunting, classless thugs that stand in the way of the Yankees retaking their rightful place as World Champions.

It sure does; the Sox still fret about the Curse of the Bambino.
