Let’s play a game called what would happen if the season ended today. Well, the Boston Red Sox .691 winning percentage (65-29) would match the 1912 team for the highest in franchise history.
Their winning percentage would also top the other 29 major league clubs. Based on that alone it’s clear that the Red Sox are the best team in baseball, right?
However, with teams such as the Houston Astros and New York Yankees hanging around the claim that the Sox are the best team in baseball isn’t so easy to make. However, based on numbers and standings the Red Sox should be identified as baseball’s best.
