These teams play 6 more times this year, including next month. I'd expect tensions to continue to rise.
By the way, for being such a traditionalist organization, the Sox sure do have alot of hat/jersey combos. I'm not sure how I feel about the new gear, but these days, almost every team has 3/4 hat/jersey combos going.
I think most Sox fans don't like it. Selling out to the almighty dollar.
