The AL East has become a division of haves and have-nots

The American League East is looking like it could turn into a two-team race, and it appears to be losing its status as the premier division in Major League Baseball.

As one AL executive handicaps it at this moment, “The Yankees as currently constituted are a seven-game leader over the Red Sox. If the Red Sox should wind up with Manny Machado or J.D. Martinez, then they’d probably cut that by two or three games.”

Besides worrying about the Yankees, the Red Sox need to worry about their own market. Boston is a Patriots town, for sure, but it’s also becoming a huge Celtics town. The Red Sox need to create excitement to at least stay No. 2 in the market.

J.D. Martinez, the slow offseason and Dustin Pedroia’s relationship with the team’s new manager

This has essentially become the question to which the entire Red Sox offseason boils down: Can they afford not to go all-out for J.D. Martinez? (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe)

Speaking of Martinez, how will his deal end up being affected by Jay Bruce’s contract with the Mets? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

One has to wonder how much the slow offseason has to do with the anticipation of offseasons to come. (Chad Jennings; Boston Herald)
