Red Sox rally around Alex Cora after Brett Gardner criticism

Tomase: Brett Gardner’s jab at Cora helps fuel Red Sox sweep originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

We’ve searched for excuses about Red Sox-Yankees losing its luster for a decade, but it really boils down to one word: hatred.

Or if you’re the 2021 Red Sox, maybe it’s the MLB.com power rankings.

Before the Red Sox faced the Mets and right-hander Jacob deGrom, aka The Best Pitcher on Earth, on Wednesday, manager Alex Cora was joking around with shortstop Xander Bogaerts.

“We beat this guy,” Cora told him, “we might be No. 1 in the nation.”

It turns out that to the list of idiosyncrasies that already includes tunnel time in the home run laundry cart and waving into the dugout like exuberant middle schoolers, the Red Sox can add a college-style infatuation with their national ranking.

The Red Sox opened
