mark beuhrle at 7-1 is the biggest suprise on the jays in a positive light...the disastorous work of the bullpen the bidgest suprise in the negative sense
what qualifies as the suprises plus and minus for the rays orioles yankees and bosox so far?
'zop, I'm a Yanks fan and let's just say I'd prefer Sox management ran my team rather than the Cashman-Levine-Steinbrenner three stooges act we have going right now.
Outside of the 3 in the AL East, there are currently 5 teams across MLB right at .500. That seems odd.
All five teams would be embarrassed by a team like the Tigers in the playoffs, though, unless a major trade happens.

The whole American League, outside Oakland, Detroit and Houston, has between 17-20 wins. And the NL isn't much different.
There are 20 teams in MLB with between 17 & 20 wins. Last year at this time, there were 8
There are really only six teams at the extremes (Houston, Ariz. and Chicago on the low side, Oak, Mil. and SF on the high).

For the umpteenth time, the Yankees gambled against the law of aging, and this time they've really crapped out.
