The Musings of a High School English teacher in Baltimore City
I don't mean to pee in your Wheaties or anything, but please stop using this "toughest division in baseball" business. Against the (other) teams that make it the toughest, the Tigers are 2-5. I'd hardly call that mashing against the big dogs (and no, I'm not counting the Twins or KC. Teams with even worse records than the Orioles bring nothing to the "toughest" moniker).Also, the toughest division in baseball is the NL Central, if you're judging by overall division winning percentage. The NL Central has a .551 winning percentage. The AL Central is at .505, pretty much tied with the AL East and its .506 winning percentage.What does all this prove? That I'm a big loser.
More urine for your Wheaties.
I'm not sure if you can judge "toughest division" by overall division winning percentage, since most of the games are against teams within a team's division in the unbalanced schedule; therefore, teams are beating up on each other. The AL Central has the World Series Champ and the Indians, who one of the four or five best teams in baseball, and the Twins, who have been a good team for years and have simply gotten off to a bad start. I would say the AL East and NL Central are close behind the AL Central in terms of overall talent, but only time will tell. But, yeah, the Tigers didn't play that well against the White Sox this year. They're a tough team. They were 2-2 in the Indians series.As for you, textureslut, screw you for reminding me about the Orioles start last year. ;)But, really, you Orioles fans have it so good compared to me as a Tigers fan. The start the Tigers have had this year puts them more games over .500 than they have been since 1993. 1993! The Orioles have at least been good in the last decade or so.
