The Boston Red Sox +235
The BoSox have the best record in baseball in 68-30 with almost a .700 winning percentage. They struck the MLB record for most wins ahead of the all-star fracture by three, since the prior record was 65 held by the 1969 Baltimore Orioles. Additionally, the Sox are on pace for 112 victories, which might indicate the first time since 1946 that the club gained over 100 games; they dropped in the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals that year. Additionally, 112 victories are the most wins in a single season in franchise history dating back to 1912 when they won 105 games and defeat the New York Giants in the World Series.
Boston’s offseason signing of J.D. Martinez is worth every dollar of the five-year, $110-million contract. Martinez has a shot to become the 11th AL player to win the triple crown since he currently ranks first in home runs (29) and RBIs (80) and third in batting average (.328). In general, the Red Sox have the most potent offense in the majors, racking up 530 runs, 30 over the second-ranked Astros.
It must be noted that starter Eduardo Rodriguez will be out for some time following a bad ankle injury in the series against the Blue Jays prior to this all-star break. The Red Sox are 16-3 SU this year when the big lefty toes the rubber. With this latest accident, Boston currently has three starting pitchers on the DL in Rodriguez, Drew Pomeranz and Steven Wright. Despite those accidents, the Red Sox remain my choice and a very dangerous group.
