10. First Place
The Red Sox are coming off one of their worst seasons in recent memory after a 69-93 letdown in 2012, and they entered 2013 with a number of new faces, including a new manager in John Farrell. Expectations weren’t necessarily high coming into this season, but don’t tell the Red Sox that. Their AL East-leading 47-33 record leads the American League and ranks third in the majors.
