It'll be interesting to see how that division plays out. Baltimore is playing some good ball right now and sit at 18-9. Eric Bedard just pitched his third straight excellent game and they have an intimidating lineup with the emergance of Brian Roberts and maybe the best player in baseball with Miguel Tejada. If they add Todd Helton at 1B like one rumor has it you'd have to make them the favorites over the Red Sox in the east and probably the entire AL. Pitching will be their big question for the rest of the season; so far so good.
The Blue Jays don't have a lot of firepower in their lineup yet they're still 3 games over .500. Roy Halladay is a horse at the top of the rotation, and the rest of the pitching staff isn't bad. I don't expect them to be above average for much longer.
If the Red Sox ever get their pitching healthy they will probably return to the top of the division. They're in a weird spot right now. Helton could also end up here.
The Yankees are just a mess. They never should have signed Jarrett Wright or Tony Womack. Pavano is a good pitcher and maybe worth the money, but Wright was a ticking timebomb and everyone but Steinbrenner knew it. Kevin Brown and Jason Giambi have two of the worst contracts in the history of baseball. They should just cut them both and move on. Tom Gordon, Paul Quantrill, Bernie Williams, Tino Martinez and Jorge Posada all look old and tired out there. Still, they have Arod, Jeter, Sheffield, Matsui, R. Johnson, Mussina, Pavano, and Rivera and they'll win some games. I bet they hang around in the wild card race if one team doesn't run away with it, like the Twins or White Sox.
Tampa Bay is still waiting for Kazmir, Upton, Young and the rest of their blue chippers to mature.
