On Tuck Day in January of 2013, we asked our FenwayNation readers where that edition of The Carmine Hose would finish. A 'lusty' 8% said they'd win the AL East. Not only did they accomplish that, The Bearded Wonders went on to capture the franchise's 8th World Series Championship. The pre-season after we won it all in 2013, FenwayNation predicted that the Tampa Bay Rays would win the AL East and the Red Sox would qualify for a Wild Card berth. Of course, the Orioles ran away with the division in 2014—with Boston finishing dead last. The point is: you can't always place much emphasis on pre-season predictions. So, all the hoopla about the Red Sox being a lock for the World Series should be taken with a HUGE grain of salt—in fact, a whole crate of Morton's.
