Final 23 Sox Games Of 2016 Are All Against AL East Foes

If you're the kind of fan who wants a frenzied finish to the wire, you're gonna love September (and a smidgen of October). After today's matinee against the Rays, Boston embarks on yet another 9-game road trip—the last three of which are in Toronto against the first-place Jays. But starting on September 9th up in The Great White North, Boston will play all of its final 23 games of 2016 against AL East opponents. Think of it, assuming the top three remain as clustered as they are this morning, this is anybody's flag to gain. And, there is no assurance of a "safe" Wild Card berth with so many non-division teams also in the hunt. Buckle up!
