Cleveland does have a really easy schedule. EDIT: Washington's schedule also gets easier from here on out (originally I'd listed Florida - I misread the story I found it).
1 3 4 6 7 8 8 9 10 15 16 23 32 37 42 44 49 51

I know the Red Sox have most of there remaining games at home. 70% or so.

They're a very good home team.

clevelands schedule is fairly easy from here on out.... with 3 of their last 5 series against kansas city and tampa bay,,, they may be able to put the wildcard away in those 10 games(if they are in contention then that is)...........

I honestly wouldn't be that surprised if Cleveland has a shot at Chicago for the Central in those two 3 game sets at the end of september and the last weekend of the season. If they can get a split of the 6 games against Minnesota or better I think they can catch Chicago and pass Minnesota.

Red Sox schedule from here on out:

4 vs. NYY
3 vs. TB
4 @ CWS
3 @ TB
3 vs. MIN
3 vs. KC
3 @ MIN
3 vs. TEX
3 vs. CWS
3 @ DET
4 @ LAA
3 @ KC
3 vs. DET
4 vs. TB
3 vs. LAA
3 @ NYY
3 @ TOR
4 vs. OAK
3 @ TB
3 @ BAL
4 vs. TOR
3 vs. NYY

Tough Opponents: NYY, BAL, TOR (owns them this year),LAA, CWS, MIN, TEX: 43 games

Easier Opponents: DET, OAK: 10 games

Easy Opponents: TB, KC: 19 games

Home games: 40
Away Games: 32

Not as easy as some are thinking, but with all the home games and the whopping 19 games with Kansas City and Tampa Bay, I would still expect Boston to finish with a stronger second half than first half, which should be good enough to win the division.
