About New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Some believe that the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox rivalry is slowly dying. Once emotional and nail-biting, the recent games between the two now lack flair. Instead a new rivalry is brewing in the AL East, which is reminiscent of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry in its heydays. The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays compete in the American League (AL) East division. This is enough to make them intra-league rivals, vying for the top spot, ensuring a berth in the playoffs. The New York Yankees are one of the three biggest rivals of the Toronto Blue Jays, the other two being the Baltimore Orioles and the Boston Red Sox. More than being fierce, this rivalry is based on mutual hatred for each other. The Blue Jays manager John Gibbons once stopped his team from batting practice at Yankee Stadium while the video board showed Yankee-Blue Jays historical highlights. According to Gibbons, the Yankees achievements were overblown. The upcoming MLB season is expected to mark a new chapter in the Yankees-Blue Jays rivalry, as the two teams get ready to face each other once again.

Intense Moments & the Longest Game

The Biggest MLB Brawl in Years – On May 15, 2016, Texas Rangers Rougned Odor punched Jose Bautista in the face. Soon a fight erupted between the two camps, which led to multiple suspensions and ejections. The case is now in litigation, though the matter does not involve Odor and Bautista, but the unauthorized publication of the fight pictures. Even though this moment doesn’t include the New York Yankees, it shows how passionate the Blue Jays can get about their base running.

The Longest Game - The longest game between the two rivals was played on April 19, 2001, which lasted for 17 innings and was played over 5 hours and 57 minutes. The game was played at the then Blue Jays home SkyDome. The Yankees eventually won the game 6-5.
