Back in March I predicted in print the American League pennant races. It turns out the smartest thing I wrote was this:
“Well, to start with, the standard disclaimer: Who knows?”
This, not so smart: “2014? Well, the Sox look good.”
I expected Boston to compete with the Yankees for a Wild Card playoff berth. To be fair, the Yankees remain in the Wild Card race despite losing four-fifths of their projected starting rotation.
