5/6 Cheering, Venting, & Standings

Postby lane_anasazi2 » Sun May 06, 2012 1:17 pm

Now that's we're over a month into the baseball season, it's time to take a look at the standings. I for one don't glance at them very often, so when I did this morning there were a few surprises. I knew, generally, how teams were doing, but still...

AL East:

Tampa Bay (19-9) - 0
Baltimore (18-9) - 0.5
Toronto (16-12) - 3.0
NY Yankees (14-13) - 4.5
Boston (11-15) - 7.0

I don't know, I have Mark Reynolds on a couple teams so I guess I assumed Baltimore was sucking it up. Is this the year Baltimore or Toronto makes it into the top 3?

AL Central:

Cleveland (14-11) - 0
Detroit (13-13) - 1.5
Chi White Sox (13-14) - 2.0
Kansas City (9-17) - 5.5
Minnesota (7-19) - 7.5

Kansas City is losing at a familiar rate. Maybe people jumped the gun on the whole breakout thing. I guess the biggest shocker is how much Detroit isn't running away with it.

AL West:

Texas (18-9) - 0
Oakland (14-14) - 4.5
Seattle (12-17) - 7.0
LA Angels (11-17) - 7.5

Texas is just disgustingly good. At this point, realistically only a serious injury to one or more of their big players could derail their playoff plans. Seriously, they should just print the tickets now.

NL East:

Washington (18-9) - 0
Atlanta (17-11) - 1.5
NY Mets (14-13) - 4.0
Miami (13-14) - 5.0
Philadelphia (13-15) - 5.5

I knew the Nationals were doing relatively well, but damn. Who's willing to say they'll keep it up?

NL Central:

St. Louis (16-11) - 0
Cincinnati (13-13) - 2.5
Houston (13-14) - 3.0
Milwaukee (12-15) - 4.0
Pittsburgh (12-15) - 4.0
Chi Cubs (10-17) - 6.0

Not too many surprises here, although Houston hanging tough near .500 is noteworthy.

NL West:

LA Dodgers (18-9) - 0
Arizona (14-14) - 4.5
San Francisco (13-14) - 5.0
Colorado (12-14) - 5.5
San Diego (9-19) - 9.5

The Padres get the prize for being furthest behind at this point in the season. What is the prize? Losing their best pitcher for a year. Hooray!

Speaking of Aviles, he and Ortiz are 0/19 this weekend :-? I've actually scored three runs today on 0/4 batting so far. :*)
