This gimmick where I take a screenshot of the AL East standings and post it every Monday morning hasn’t gotten old yet. I’m not tired of it and I’m sure you aren’t either.
It could be because the Orioles sit atop baseball’s most difficult division with their 22-13 record. Or maybe because they have the second best record in the entire American League.
Any number of reasons, really. They’re playing damn good baseball right now.
While we’re talking about standings can we mention how soft the AL Central is? The Blue Jays sit in fourth place in the East at 19-16, they would lead the Central by a game over the Indians and two over the Tigers.
Time for a balanced schedule.
