The Boston Red Sox are playing great baseball right now, but what are the three reasons why this team will win the 2017 World Series?

The Boston Red Sox are currently sitting in first place of the AL East and staring down the gun of the 2017 postseason. While the American League Divisional Series isn’t until October, you must know that this team is preparing for the stretch run as we speak. Simply, this team will settle for nothing less than a World Series in 2017.

It’s been a few years since we’ve last seen the Red Sox on baseball’s biggest stage, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been good. Boston has actually been one of the better teams in Major League Baseball over the last decade. Largely thanks to their great front-office and farm system.

That being said, this 2017 Red Sox baseball team is definitely a product of those two systems.

Boston has done a fantastic job of identifying talent outside of their organization and doing whatever they can to bring them in without having to give up the farm. Whether it was Chris Sale or David Price, the Red Sox didn’t have to give up too much, even though they did have to trade their top prospect Yoan Moncada to the White Sox.

Needless to say, the Sox have put themselves in a great position to compete for another championship this season. Here are three reasons why Boston could bring home a World Series title this October.
