The Red Sox are 18-7 after their four-game sweep of the Astros, and Lou Merloni is convinced.

"Right now they're the best team in the American League, and, I think, in baseball," the former Sox infielder and current WEEI host told Michael Felger on 'Sports Sunday'.

"Yeah, it's legit. This record's legit. I don't care if it's Houston or not," he said. "Playing bad teams is just an opportunity. You've got to go out there and actually win those games, or it's a missed opportunity. But with this rotation right now, [with John] Lackey coming back, and what [Ryan] Dempster is giving you, and [the work of Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester] and the bullpen . . . "

You get the point.

Do you agree?
