The season is too old to say it’s still early. We’re past the All Star break, and it’s not too early to recognize the hometown Red Sox are on top of the American League East with a three and a half game lead over the Yankees and Rays (as of writing this). It is too early to declare the team champs, or even division winners, but with a 50-39 record, things are looking good for the team.
The team is sent three players to the All Star Game in Miami; Chris Sale, Craig Kimbrel, and Mookie Betts. The Red Sox haven’t played poorly, but with less than three months left to play, there are definitely some questions that need to be asked.
HERE ARE 5 SECOND HALF QUESTIONS FOR THE BOSTON RED SOX
What’s going on at third base?
Can you keep winning without hitting the long ball?
Is your bullpen strong enough?
Is David Price kind of, sort of, back?
Is this team strong enough to make a deep playoff run?
My predictions at the halfway point:
Red Sox make the playoffs, lose to the Indians.
Astros beat the Dodgers in the World Series
