2007 AL Regular Season Over: Sox East Champs!

Today was the last day of Major League Baseball's American League Regular Season Schedule (there is one more game to be played in the National League, more on that hopefully tomorrow). The teams that are going to the postseason playoffs have been decided. And those teams include the 2007 AL East Division Champion Boston Red Sox! Thirty games over .500 at 96 wins and 66 losses, the Sox also tied for the best record in baseball (with the Cleveland Indians) and secured home field advantage for however deep into the playoffs they go. They will start a best of five game series against the Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim on Wednesday (October 3) at Fenway Park. The Indians start a best of five against the dreaded New York Yankees Thursday, at Jacobs Field. Below are some of the Red Sox season stats.

I think the Red Sox had a better regular-season record against Cleveland, which might technically make Boston the best regular-season team.

Both Cleveland and Boston finished with identical 96-66 records. The Red Sox won the tiebreaker (beat Cleveland in their season series 5-2) to get home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
