|Time sure does fly when you're having fun, doesn't it, folks? And by "having fun," I of course mean "watching your team struggle like a Galapagos turtle on its ample back to right itself and zoom ahead of the hare that is the rest of the AL East." With their still sub-.500 record and more wounded soldiers heading to the DL Resort and Casino all the time, I think it's time to take a breather from my usual Yankees chit chat and take a gander at how the other 29 teams in the league are faring these days - as usual, I've got just ten words to use for each of them. Ready?
AL East How could this be??
Tampa Bay: Are you for real?? I hope not, for Yankees sake.
Boston: Dice-K possibly injured. Great news for Yanks, Rays.
Toronto: Could Burnett be on the trading block this summer?
Baltimore: Nice job surmounting 2 4-run Yanks leads. Grrrrrumble.
AL Central lots of anger!
Chicago: Cabrera taking matters into his own hands.,, Beware of Ozzie.
Minnesota: Young needs a day off. Forget streak.
Cleveland: Can we have Sabathia?
Detroit: Leyland says he's done poor job. Es verdad.
Kansas City: Jose Guillen takes notes from Ozzie Guillen. Baby.
AL West We all know who's winning here
Los Angeles: Offense still having issues. Don't worry - division still yours.
Oakland: You're not really this good.
Texas: Just blame it on Bush.
NL East Who in the what now?
Philadelphia: Best offensive infield in baseball. Pitching?
Atlanta: Gonzales and Soriano coming to help 'pen. Is it enough?
New York: Big 2-game win "streak." Willy safe?
Washington: At least you have a nice new stadium!
NL Central I spy with my little eye: 3 teams with a chance and 3 with no hope
Chicago: Mark Cuban to purchase?
St. Louis: I thought Pujols was injured? How so freakin' good?!
Houston: Since when are you good?
Milwaukee: S.C.O.R.E.? Stolen from Fannin!
Cincinnati: 2 homers to go for Griffey!
Pittsburgh: Gorzelanny has worse outing than than Hughes or I-Ken.
NL West Hot race dead
Arizona: How in tarnation is Randy Johnson halfway decent?
Los Angeles: Offense struggling to produce... more hugs from Torre needed.
San Francisco: 4 not-awful starts for Zito in a row!
Colorado: No chance at a World Series repeat.
San Diego: Fail.
