The Red Sox can get back into playoff picture; they just need to win within division
The Boston Red Sox won their first game of the season 9-7 against the New York Yankees. As a result, their 1-0 record had them in first place in the American League East. They haven't been in first place since.
The latest playoff odds have them with a 23 percent chance of playing meaningful games in October.
So -- can they get back into this race, even with all the injuries they've suffered?
