Still too early in the season to make that declaration. There seems to be a lot of parity in the AL so far this year with nobody running away with anything. While I agree that the Sox are hardly favorites to make the postseason, with two wild cards in play, it is too early to concede a season in April and quite disappointing to miss having your ace go up against the division favorites. The Sox injury bug has really been contagious this year.
