3 to watch: The Ignoring the rivalry edition

The Yankees are playing the Red Sox, and you couldn't care less.

The Yankees are playing the Red Sox, and you can't believe that other network is showing them again.

The Yankees are playing the Red Sox, and just as a favor to you, we're not including them in this week's 3 to watch (although, if you must know, the second-place Yankees host the fourth-place Red Sox Monday and Tuesday, before hosting the first-place Rays Wednesday and Thursday):

1. One last Yankee-Red Sox reference: The Yankees lost their first eight meetings with the Red Sox last year, and in the end it meant nothing. So perhaps it means nothing that the Giants have lost their first six meetings with the Padres this year, scoring just eight runs in those six games. They haven't scored in two games against Tuesday night starter Mat Latos, and they've also lost twice to Clayton Richard, who starts in Giants at Padres, Monday night (10:05 EDT) at Petco Park .

2. For all their early-season troubles, the Angels are 2 1/2 games out of first place in the American League West. They just swept three games from one of the teams ahead of them (the A's), and now they get a chance at the other one, in Angels at Rangers, Tuesday night (8:05 EDT) at Rangers Ballpark . Vladimir Guerrero always looked forward to these Angels-Rangers series when he played for the Angels. Now he gets a chance from the other side.

3. Jason Heyward was everyone's preseason pick for National League Rookie of the Year. Mike Leake was nobody's. Heyward has eight home runs and 28 RBIs, so he's got a real chance. Leake is 4-0 with a 3.09 ERA for the first-place Reds, so you've got to say he has a chance, too. All of which should make Reds at Braves, Thursday afternoon (1:05 EDT) at Turner Field interesting.

At least as interesting as Yankees-Red Sox.

Nice try Mr. Knobler.  Any time Javy "Vazkwez" (please learn the pronunciation WFAN callers) earns a win against Boston, it's probably an interesting game.
