    The question isn't who, it's how many games do the Red Sox win it by? A lot is my guess.

    So yeah, the Red Sox win the AL East, AL, and World Series next year. Book it.

    Yankees win the 1 gamer, then lose in ALDS, 4-2 to the tribe

    In the words of Kaiser it's going to be GLORIOUS when the Sox choke.

    I want the Red Sox to struggle in April.
    Force the team to fire the worst manager in MLB John Farrell and convince David Ortiz to come out of retirement.

    The team is too good not to be the favorite. Young superstars in Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts.
    Deepest rotation in the AL IMO. Chris Sale is the best pitcher in the AL. Price and Porcello are stud 2-3 pitchers.
    The team didn't have to trade Eduardo Rodriguez, Andrew Bientendi or Jackie Bradley for Sale.

    Yankees have Betances, Sanchez, Tanaka, and a bunch of ponies. The prospects are nice but need to show it. The Yankees took Ellsbury which was great. He is Brett Gardner without the pop at double the cost.

    The East will be competitive but Boston is favored.
