The Red Sox are a top 5 team. They should get to around 90 wins or so, enough to make the playoffs. On paper, the Sale, Price, and Porcello rotation looks good, though I'm not convinced Price will be healthy, and not convinced Porcello is as consistent as I'd like. Pomeranz can jump in as well. I think Kimbrel has a bounce back year.
The lineup is very solid, and built to win for a long time. Betts, Boegarts, Benitendi, and Bradley are all young and talented. Pablo looks better early, and Pedey is still capable of performing at a high level.
I don't think the Indians, or any other team in the AL, should be better.
