In a happy old house up on a hill, live 21 20-something year olds. With a grand porch where the music plays and the laughter ensues, there is never a dull moment in the community that settled on one warm and excitable September afternoon. A white house, green shutters, and a staircase to the hippie heaven invites all that bring happiness, peace and respect.

The 2016 regular season for the Red Sox went as well as anyone could have expected. There was so much excitement, not only from the team winning the AL East, but in the way David Ortiz played out his farewell season, and the emergence of the young players on the roster. The Sox entered the playoffs as the trendy World Series pick, but once the playoffs started, everything went wrong. The Cleveland Indians swept the Sox and Ortiz’s career failed to achieve the storybook ending everyone had hoped for.
The 2017 season launches a new era in Red Sox baseball. Ortiz will not be on the team for the first time in 14 years, newly-acquired Chris Sale will be leading the pitching staff, and Mookie Betts will be the face of the team. The answers to five key questions can help tell who the Red Sox will be this season.
