Scott Lauber, ESPN:
You didn't really think the Boston Red Sox would run away with the American League East, did you?
Did you? ...
Bet on seeing the Red Sox, Orioles and Blue Jays duking it out through September, too.


I have noticed in the past that Lauber can be a bit of a dick. Yeah, I thought the Red Sox would score 12 runs per game and clinch by August 1 and win the East by 40 games. Because when I judge a team, I look at their absolute historic best and assume they will keep up that pace all season. Moron.

Thanks to the MFY, we have a one-game lead again.
