It is the All-Star break and here is how things are shaping up for the rest of the season.
Cubs are in first but may have to hold on for a playoff spot. The Reds have gone on a tear of late, their offense is good but not so sure about the pitching staff but should hold on for a wild card spot. The Pirates are a tough bunch but are showing signs of weakness.
The only thing that can slow down the Braves are themselves and have no threats to worry about. The Mets can't seem to get the offense in gear especially when the best hitter is touting a .236 average.
Florida has things pretty well wrapped up here also though there was contention early from Mexico City.
Salem and Arizona are slapping each other around and the only real fight for a playoff spot at this time.
The Tigs and Jays, one will out last the other in the end.
The Red Sox are in snoozeville already with an 18 game lead.
What can you say about this division, the only one touting four 40 win teams. Rangers are up by 10 over the Rays and 11 over the Heads. Will their be a serious fight or will the status quo reamain.
Really, the only surprise of the season as the Sky Sox are not in front and are not even sniffing first place. Seattle has rocked everyones world so far.
If the playoffs started tomorrow:
5. Colorado Springs
6. Tampa Bay
Odds would be Atlanta/Chicago vs Seattle/Boston
