*** Denotes Division Leaders
Records are before play Thursday July.06, 2014
RK Team Last Wk Rnk () Current Rec – Last 10 Days Rec
1. ***Oakland A’s (1) 54 – 33: 6 – 3 The A’s are the only team that has an above .600 Win Percentage.
What is not to like. They have the best record since 2012, are even better over the last 2 years (July 2012, July 2014, about .615 Baseball), have won 2 AL West in a row as well.
2. ***Detroit Tigers (2) 48 – 36: 6 – 4: Tigers beat the better teams, and have troubles with the lesserlites.
Emergence of J.D. Martinez is a major bonus for a team starving for OF help. Still need more Bullpen arms.
Great division for opponents down the 2nd half. Read the rest of this entry
It is Sunday and man do I have a challenging Sunday Request!
— Pete Sonski (@29sonski) June 29, 2014
Should the Giants do it?
Should the Red Sox pursue it?
It is a tougher decision than you would think when you consider how quickly closers flame out!
I take on the challenge on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Matt Garza won a tight pitchers duel for the Brewers, 1-0, with a complete game 2 hit shutout in Cincinnati.
Casey McGehee went 3-5, the last one was a 2 out, 2 strike game tying hit. He would come around and score the winning run for the Marlins, 6-5, in St. Louis.
Chris Archer pitched into the 9th inning, allowing just 2 runs on 2 solo homers and 6 hits over 8 1/3. He got the 7-2 decision for the Rays over the Tigers.
Nelson Cruz went 5-5 with 2 doubles and a homer, helping the Orioles top the Red Sox in the second half of the double header, 7-4.
They owned baseball on July 5, 2014.
