Baseball Standings Update

The Red Sox are rolling. Add another win against the Orioles tonight, and the Sox are now 29 games over .500 and 6 1/2 games up over the Yankees in first place. At 141 days, this is the longest the Red Sox have consecutively had the division lead, and they are on pace for 97 wins and the division title. Hopefully they can get healed up for the playoffs now.
Now The Hanshin Tigers have been in the midst of a very exciting pennant race. In the last week they have gained 3 games in the standings and now sit only 1.5 games behind the Central League leading Yomiuri Giants. Also with a record of 64-52-4 (yep they have ties in Japan, weird huh?) they have all but guaranteed themselves a playoff spot. They start a huge series with the Giants on Friday that may shake out the division's final standings!
