The Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox had a nice little feud going from 2005 till a few years ago. However, since guys like David Price, Joe Maddon and James Shields are no longer in Tampa (Hell, one is in Boston now.).
As of right now, the Baltimore Orioles have heat with the Toronto Blue Jays which is good because the more Jose Bautista gets struck, the wider the smile on my face.
As a Giants fan, there was nothing better than ruining things for the San Francisco... well, aside from the other teams in the NFC East. In fact, if you listen long enough, you'll still hear Whiner fans crying about Kyle Williams and/or the fumble that wasn't in the 2011 NFC Championship.
I agree with Clippers-Warriors and I would add Cavaliers-Bulls, if it wasn't so damn one-sided.

As a Rays fan, I can safely say the Red Sox are considered the enemy. We tend to strongly dislike the Yankees, but hate the Red Sox. Most of the fights the Rays have ever had have been with Boston. I've even seen fans fighting at games between those two teams. And they've faced each other twice in the playoffs as well, including the biggest win in Rays history (the 2008 ALCS).

Since the Cowboys and Giants were mentioned, I'd say the next biggest out-of-division rival for the 49ers is the Packers. Whenever both teams make the playoffs, they seem to run up against each other. And both are storied franchises with multiple Super Bowls to their name.
Sharks-Kings is becoming rather heated. Probably not the first one you think of in terms of NorCal-SoCal, but a lot of history, including our just now avenging the epic playoff collapse from 2 years ago.
