It is officially the post-season, the Red Sox are AL East Champions, and their first stop is the ALDS against the Cleveland Indians. If you told me a year ago, that they would win the division and have over 90 wins, I may have laughed at that notion. However, now I am laughing at my last year’s self.
Coming into the 2016 season, the Red Sox had a bunch of “what if’s” that needed to fall into place in order for Red Sox fans to feel comfortable with this year’s team. Before the season even got underway, the “what if’s” seemed even more formidable when Eduardo Rodriguez and Carson Smith landed themselves on the disabled list before opening day.
