Talent pool in AL East doesn't measure up

The American League East used to have it all: world champions, pennant-winners, great rivalries and above all, talent.The open checkbook of the Steinbrenner family and the very generous checkbook of the Red Sox meant that the best and the brightest in baseball wound up on the Yankees and Red Sox more often than not, with the Orioles, Blue Jays and sometimes the Rays striking it rich as well.Now, the bloom is off the rose.

Buckley: Ben Cherington’s house of horrors

After their 8-3 win against the Los Angeles Angels last night at Fenway Park, the sub-.500 Red Sox are just 31⁄2 games behind the first-place Tampa Bay Rays.A week ago, the Sox were chasing the first-place Yankees. By the end of next week, they may well be chasing the first-place Orioles. And by the middle of June, it could be the first-place Blue Jays who emerge as the hunted.Or maybe everyone will be chasing the first-place Red Sox.
