(No, it\’s not quite what you\’re thinking.)
It\’s May, so I\’ve bothered to look at the American League standings. I\’m intrigued by what I see. Let me explain. I skew towards the AL Central, where the Twins are on top, but the Tigers are playing some decent ball. The other three teams in the Central, and the entirety of the AL West look average at best. Out East, the Yankees and Red Sox have solid teams, and the Tampa Bay Rays have the best record in the League.
Now follow along. If the Twins and Tigers can beat up on the rest of their division and the West, and the three teams in the East knock each other around some, we could see the Rays as Division Champs, and the Tigers as the Wild Card.
A post-season without the Yanks and the Sawks. That\’s good for everyone but FOX, which of course means it\’s good for everyone.
