Frinklin’s Mid-Season Baseball Check-up: AL Version

I said…

AL West
1. Los Angles Angels
2. Texas Rangers
3. Seattle Mariners
4. Oakland Athletics

At the break…

1. Los Angles Angels
2. Texas Rangers
3. Oakland Athletics
4. Seattle Mariners

Well, the top two I hit on, but I figured Seattle would be markedly better than 2004, and Oakland would really struggle this year. For about 2 months I was right, but Seattle now seems to suck almost as much as they did last year, and the A’s are putting it together.

I said…

AL Central

1. Minnesota Twins
2. Cleveland Indians
3. Chicago White Sox
4. Detroit Tigers
5. Kansas City Royals

At the break…

1. Chicago White Sox
2. Minnesota Twins
3. Cleveland Indians
4. Detroit Tigers
5. Kansas City Royals

Yeah, I’m sure everybody thought that the Sox would coast into the break with the best record in the Majors. The Indians stumbled out of the gate, but have recovered enough to join the fight for the wild card. Detroit has been better but still not great; exactly what I thought. KC simply sucks.

I said…

AL East

1. New York Yankees
2. Boston Red Sox
3. Baltimore Orioles
4. Tampa Bay Devil Rays
5. Toronto Blue Jays

At the break….

1. Boston Red Sox
2. Baltimore Orioles
3. New York Yankees
4. Toronto Blue Jays
5. Tampa Bay Devil Rays

Well, the Red Sox and Yankees aren’t playing as well I thought. Baltimore surprised me for awhile, but now they seem to be finding their level. I totally whiffed on the Jays, and that bit about the D-Rays finishing above them? Just ignore it… never happened. I just hope Lou doesn’t have an aneurysm on the field.
