All offseason we heard about how tough the AL East was going to be, how it was going to be a dogfight until the end, etc.
And while I agree that the division is still very talented, I have to wonder if it is the Yankees-Sox and everyone else.
The Orioles are clearly not in the race.
The Jays, despite having some talent, are simply not good enough to compete with the Big Boys.
The Rays I think are the real wild card here. Everything about them suggests that they should be better, but they remain 6 games behind the Sox.
Do you think the East is a two-team race? Or do you think another team in the division will make a serious run beyond the Sox-Yankees?
