Star Wars?

Fox has chosen to open their coverage by comparing the two teams to the Star Wars rebels (played by the Sox) and the evil Yankee Empire. This is a bit of a stretch because the Red Sox have a baseball's second-largest payroll, over $120 million. That said, the Yankees' $180 million+ payroll is nearly half-again larger than the Sox's. That's kind of like saying the Brits have the second-largest number of troops in Iraq.

I tried this last year for Game 7 of the ALCS. You can see it at http://bsox.blogspot.com/2003_10_12_bsox_archive.html#106635242779026187.
