Joba looked okay today. Struggled with command, again, but very few balls actually hit hard. Yankee pen continues to do well, thankfully. Rivera is fucking unhittable this year, fun to watch.

So, not saying that they're on their way to the post-season or anything like that, but, they are playing pretty well lately.

Dalton is funny.

Hey, Dalton, let's be friends.

Together, with our powers combined, we can obliterate some of the really gay posters like GirlsAloudFan and KansasCityFreakinRoyalsFan.

Here they come. The Rays are like your little brother who you always beat in sports that suddenly grew up and started returning the favor. Good for them. But they really need to ditch the damned cowbells, I mean seriously, you're a Major League Baseball team.

Not that the bells are any lamer than Thunderstix and rally monkeys but that's a whole other story.

Edit: And kudos to whoever took that pic, great shot.

So you're saying you think the White Sock are. . . . what? Bad, okay, irrelevant, kooky (at least Ozzie is)?

What about the pitching staff? They don't warrant a "good" in your book? I agree that the hitting has to be more constant. There are day when they just plain suck. My cellphone inbox & out box are inundated with "Sock blow" & "they suck" texts.

At the least, the Sock are a "good" team. Not a "great" team but certainly a "good" team.

In the defense of the White Sox, they have the largest difference in the AL in Runs scored vs Runs allowed. Only two AL teams have scored more runs, so the offense is not exactly anemic. They have an elite closer and pretty strong set up guys. Unless Floyd and Danks take steps back, they have a strong rotation. I'd not take them too lightly. Still waiting, though, for Carlos Quentin to wake up and realize that he's Carlos Quentin.

All that being said, Boston is the team to beat.

I don't want to sound arrogant, but if the Tigers score the most runs in a game they're gonna win it.

an average team that is playing above their head thanks largely to a weaker than expected division and the unexpected first half performance of gavin floyd.

they are 13 games over .500 against the AL Central. they are under .500 against everyone else.

take floyd out of the equation and their starting rotation has a record of 21-20.

they do have a quality bullpen, though. i will give you that.
