Baseball Prospectus Projects Ninety Red Sox Wins
Baseball Prospectus is projecting a 90-win 2017 season for the Red Sox. While that might sound a little low, you should also know that it would be more than enough for another AL East Division title. BP projects the Tampa Bay Rays in second place—six full games behind Boston with 84 wins. Both The Bronx Embalmers and Toronto Blue Jays are seen having .500 campaigns and the Orioles are projected to end up in the basement with just 73 victories. The New York Metropolitans are the only projected division winner with fewer wins than the Red Sox—at 88.
