Peeps on the street: Do you think the Red Sox will win the World Series this year?
Oscar Tsai, sophomore
"I think they are going to lose because the Astros are better than them. The Red Sox’s relief pitching is bad, and their starting pitching isn’t good enough."
Grayson Badger, freshman
"100 percent because they have some great players, and they have a lot of depth in their bullpen."
Katherine Brown, sophomore
"I think they will win the World Series because they already beat the Yankees, and we’re playing pretty well this season. They have good team spirit, and you can always see them supporting each other. Like with Benintendi and his group, there’s always three of them that support each other even if they do badly."
Julia Lester, senior
"Yes because they are really good. I used to watch them when I was younger. I watched one of a World Series before when they won, and I think they are going to win this one; they are good enough."
Madhav Krishna, freshman
"I think there’s a good chance of it; they’ve just knocked the Yankees out of the playoffs, so it seems they’re well on their way to a good championship. They have good teamwork and everyone here is supportive of them. They have a lot of spirit—people really want to see them win."
Annia Ferdinandt, senior
"Yeah, I think they will because their team has a good community, and I think that by having a close bond they will be able to accomplish anything."
Ben Wells, sophomore
"No, because they aren’t going to be able to beat the Astros. Every single aspect of their team is not as good as the Astros; their starting and relief pitchers, offense and power aren’t as good."
Henry Xie, junior
"Yes, I think they have a good chance of winning the World Series this year because they have a good starting pitcher, Chris Sale. Their bullpen is pretty good, they’re hitting has been good and they just beat the Yankees, so we should have a lot of confidence heading into the next round."
Collin Finnigan, junior
“Yes; they are the best team in baseball. The Yankees are the only team that could compete with them, and [the Red Sox] destroyed them at their home field. I think we will beat the Astros; they are a good team but I think we’ll win.”
