Mercifully, for the sake of fellow blogger Civil Sense, I haven’t harped on the American League Central race in awhile. But the All-Star break is upon us, and a good time for reflection on the standings:
1. Detroit Tigers 48-39 —
2. Chicago White Sox 45-43 3.5 GB
3. Minnesota Twins 45-44 4 GB
4. Kansas City Royals 37-51 11.5 GB
5. Cleveland Indians 35-54 14 GB
It’s not looking good for the Indians, especially after the symbolic 10-1 spanking Detroit delivered to them this afternoon.
