The Mariners have the lead and one of the few teams to have a winning record at home in the AL. The Twinkies are still trying to stay close but the annihilation in Seattle hurt. The Blue Jays got their heads above water and suddenly looked like they were gonna jump back into the fray. Going 2 and 6 at the hands of the Mariners and Twinkies has ruffled their feathers. Detroit may have a tiger by the tail but it is still asleep.
The East looks like a disaster waiting to happen. Are the Republicans making a move? Any of them get hot and take over. The Red Sox have stinky feet, the Dung Beetles just plainly stink, the Braves have their tomahawks at the ready but can't get out of their own way.
Don't look now but the Rays have built up a 10 game lead. How? 34-15 on the road is how. Lo and behold, the Rangers are above .500 at home, now that seems really strange when the road record is 22-27. KC and the Heads are fighting a battle to stay out of the cellar. They have a plan though, identical records.
The Slobs found a novel way to take over the division, beat everyone else. Still a tight bunch and two have winning records at home and they are all above .500! Hot Pockets have an inside track, we might have to wait until the microwave goes "DING" though. We also know what happens when the Padres get hot. The Angels aren't gonna go away either and look out because they have a deal with Victors Secret.
The Brewers drank too much at All-Star break and have hit skid row. The Pirates, Reds and Cubs have taken advantage to siddle up the board. Yes, the Cubs, but I wouldn't take them serious. The Pirates may raid their wares before the season ends. The Reds struggle at times but remain within striking distance.
The Phillies were happy until the 3rd game with the Mets. They looked at the schedule and looked scared. The Mets aren't happy with their schedule either...uggggh is the word but their could be joy as it is mostly a home schedule. The Mets did hand Salem their worst loss of the season. Cleveland can't win at home and the latest losing streak have them on edge. The Browns need to win the rest of their games to get to .500, no one sees that happening.
The Astros are doing everything humanly possible to pull away from the pesky Marlins, it just ain't happening. The Marlins are actually getting a little worried as things are getting a bit complicated in the NL. Mexico City and Charlotte are relaxing, so would I at 20 plus games back. Can we say "Where is the beach?".
Salem needs about 20 wins for a lock on a playoff spot already, that seems absurd. They were none too happy about their latest loss. The Dodgers have awakened from a deep sleep and are putting a fright to a couple teams. The D'Back have their rattles shaking but are suddenly fangless. The Giants and Browns are in the same company and are fighting it out for next years first pick.
