Boston Red Sox: Why You Shouldn’t Be Buying Team’s 2013 World Series Chances

August 13, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Following last season’s 92-loss debacle, this year’s version of the Boston Red Sox have been a breath of fresh air. Heading into last night’s game at 71-49 they already had one more victory than all of last year and hold first place in the American League East.

Davey Johnson was Manager of the Year in 2012 because he brought out the best in a team few picked to win much of anything. Patience and quiet confidence in his players worked those wonders.
