Checking in on the Red Sox AL East Rivals
It’s never too early to scoreboard watch. With the Boston Red Sox projected to be in an absolute dogfight in the competitive AL East, every game in this division can make a difference. This will be the first of a weekly series evaluating the recent happenings in the best division in baseball.
As you’ll see, there are only three teams listed below, so I want to give a little love to the Baltimore Orioles. The perennial cellar dwellers haven’t hit a lick this season, but they combined to go 3-3 against the Brewers and the Yankees, two playoff teams from 2021, so hats off to them.
One final note before we get started: This series will usually only cover the previous week, but given that the season opened on a Thursday, I decided to cover the last 10 days instead of seven.
