At the designated mid-point of the 2010 Major League Baseball season, we find the New York Yankees atop the American League Eastern Division with a record of 56-32 – the best record in Major League Baseball, by the way!
The Tampa Bay Rays are second at 54-34 – 2.0 games back. And arch rival the Boston Red Sox are 51-37 – 5.0 games out.
On the other side of town, the Atlanta Braves lead the National League Eastern Division with a record of 52-36. The New York Mets are second at 48-40 (4.0 games back) and the Philadelphia Phillies are on their heels in third, at 47-40 (4.5 games out).
Not a bad place to be, if you’re a New Yorker like me!
Let’s get the Home Run Derby, All Star Game and the awarding of World Series Home Field Advantage out of the way, and jump into the second half! …Who needs LeBron James!
