Arrgh, Matey. Shiver me timbers, 1st in the East

Arrrrgh, Matey.  Shiver me timbers.  Keel hauled.

AL East wk 12:
New York Yankees  (40-29) --> (44-31)   wk 4-2
Boston Red Sox       (42-28) --> (44-32)   wk 2-4
Tampa Bay Rays       (38-33) --> (43-34)   wk 5-1
Toronto Blue Jays      (36-35) --> (38-39)   wk 2-4
Baltimore Orioles       (31-37) --> (34-40)   wk 3-3

+ everyone won on Sunday.  It's the East, after all.   

Despite their hot streak, the Red Sox were boarded by the Pirates after doing penance with the Padres, and the Yankees took 1st place... for now.  The stealthy Rays heated the field to pull close and create the 3 team race most folks expected.  Maybe the Jays can hang close?

With interleague ending, thank Jeter, we'll get back to better games.
  • The Red Sox get famine and feast, heading to Philly - It's on to the city of brotherly love, Ben Franklin and cheesesteaks  where the fans are gracious and the food is tough - and then Houston.  The AssTro end of the league.  And then the Jays, finally.
  • The Yankees see the Brewers at home and then on the road to the Mets and then Cleveland.  Taking care of business.

Looking to get Colon back soon, maybe even Hughes.  Too much to ask where the hell the lefty relievers are...  the pharmacy probably.  ARod hitting for average and RBIs despite sore shoulder, light power.  Tex, Swisher, Jorge stay hot, looking to wake up Cano and Granderson to click on all cylinders.  Gardner actually stole a base - imagine that!
