Breaking Down The AL EAST

The American League East has been absolutely dominating the Major League Baseball (MLB) scene. This division is so dominate that four teams could be #1 in other divisions of the MLB. With two weeks left in the season, the Tampa Bay Rays have already earned playoff berth, and the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, and Toronto Blue Jays are vying for the remaining two spots.

1. (94-59) Tampa Bay Rays: As mentioned above, Tampa Bay already has a playoff spot locked up. They are in great position to win the division. Time will tell if they can be back-to-back AL Pennant Champs and possibly win the World Series this year.

2. (88-65) Boston Red Sox: Boston is currently in position to secure a wild-card spot. If they get the right breaks, they could potentially still win the division. However, they will be challenged with games against New York, Baltimore and Washington.

3. (86-67) New York Yankees: New York faces all division foes in their final games, playing against Boston, Toronto, and Tampa Bay. Every game has showdown potential with serious playoff implications. If they manage to survive or dominate the final series, New York will be a dangerous threat in the postseason.

4. (85-67) Toronto Blue Jays: Toronto is right on the cusp of playoff berth. The good news is that they are still in control of their future. Minnesota, New York, and Baltimore will be must-win games.
