Real Estate prices in the greater Boston area are known to be incredibly high. Yet, the New York Yankees are living rent-free in the minds of the Red Sox and their fans, on this championship parade Wednesday.
While hearkening back to his team’s Divisional Series match-up against the Yankees, Red Sox Manager Alex Cora reminded fans of the panic the team felt after losing Game 2 to New York, and the exhilaration that followed their Game 3 offensive explosion:

Nope, not a chance.
