Washington Post Chimes In For Red Sox AL East Title
This is getting to be a trend. Yet another publication has picked your 2016 Carmine Hose to win the AL East—this time The Washington Post. Sportswriter Barry Svrluga sees the arrival of Dave Dombrowski as the key factor to turn around three last place finishes in the previous four seasons. The acquisition of an ace (David Price) and the re-vamping of the bullpen have Dombrowki's "fingerprints" all over them—but Svrluga rightly points to the resurgence of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval as critical to any success.
