Herald's AL Power Ranking: 'We're Number Ten!'

John Tomase of the Boston Herald is one of the few mainstream media types in town who doesn't wear Green Monster-colored glasses. His 2013 American League Power Rankings logically place your Carmine Hose in tenth place—one slot behind the Kansas City Royals. Spending $100 million on old platoon players is not going make this team competitive—if for no other reason than most other AL teams have significantly improved. The Jays and Rays alone in our own division have made smarter moves than Boston. Our suggestion for Sox fans is to stock up on tickets to games with the AL West Houston Astros—pretty much the only certain 'Ws' on the schedule (April 26th-April 28th).
