Spring training is done. It’s over. Finally. Did you survive it?
Now, who will win this year? Who will be the unlikely heroes staking their claim into the playoffs as the American League East division champions? Will another team take a wildcard spot or will the rest watch the postseason from their living rooms?
Here, at BoSox Injection, we examine each team at the end of the month, providing you with our analysis of each team in the AL East. Each report will include examinations of winning streaks, losing streaks, call-ups, players sent down, injuries, and players to watch in the future.
BSI is the home for Red Sox Nation to discover just how their team, the Boston Red Sox, compares to the rest of the division. Can they make history in 2015 again, by going worst to first to worst and then back to first? They’ve done it before, so why can’t it happen again?
Let’s find out, shall we?
