AL East Playoff Race has Begun

The Red Sox stacked the deck this year… the only question in the lineup is the catcher position.

The Yankees failed to obtain their highly sought after prize (Cliff Lee) thanks to the Yankee fans.

The Blue Jays, Rays and Orioles have not made any major head-turning acquisitions.  As a matter or fact, the Rays lost the one free agent they needed… Carl Crawford signed with Boston this offseason.

Based on the lineups, rotations, coaching and educated guessing, it’s expected that the final standings will look like this:

1. Boston Red Sox
2. New York Yankees
3. Tampa Bay Rays
4. Toronto Blue Jays
5. Baltimore Orioles

Boston lost 3 top prospects in the trade for Adrian Gonzales, however, they still have a lot of talent in the system.  Many players are looking to make that next step once the opportunity arises.  As of late, the Red Sox have seen a lot of the developing pitching talent due to past injuries and have seen only a glimpse of the many stars in the Red Sox system.

2011 is going to be highlighted by a historical match up that hasn’t occurred since the 1918 World Series… Red Sox vs Cubs at Fenway Park.  Also on everybody’s radar this year is Red Sox vs Yankees, Red Sox vs Phillies and Red Sox vs Rangers.

Ticket sales for the Red Sox are believed to be very strong this coming season as the Sox strengthen their chances in the AL East.
