Baseball commercial highlights New York/Boston rivalry with a dash of Philadelphia

    Philadelphia takes a ribbing in a new baseball commercial, but it’s all in good fun. The ad for New Era, the company that makes the official MLB hats, pits Yankees fans against Red Sox fans with Cliff Lee’s New York departure as the instigator.

    Big names John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin battle over their teams’ talent, with Yankees fan Baldwin saying Yankess fans don’t consider Philadelphia to be a real sports town.

    Tell that to Cliff Lee. Oh wait, you can’t! Should be a great season for East Coast rivalries. Let’s keep the vomiting to a minimum.
