Boston is currently in third place in the AL East, with a 40-28 record and a .588 winning percentage, putting them two games back of the Yankees and Rays. Besides those two clubs, however, the Red Sox are better than every other team in baseball.

Put another way, the third place team in the AL East would be in first place in every other division in baseball. Maybe this year, the AL East should just hold a 3-team tournament for the World Series.
