In this week’s edition of the AL East Roundup, we look at bashing black birds, inspiring northmen, blue fowls in turbulent waters, a Florida uprising, and seeing red next year. Each of the clubs in the American League East have had some success from old faces, new ones, and a hole bunch of home runs.

So, with just a few weeks to go before the end of the season, it’s now time to take stock of what remains for each team, what has become of each squad, and which team has anything left in the tank to reach the finish line.

So, without further ado, let’s start with the current AL East Standings and then move on from there:

  1. Baltimore Orioles – 78-56, –
  2. New York Yankees – 70-64, 8.0 GB
  3. Toronto Blue Jays – 68-67, 10.5 GB
  4. Tampa Bay Rays – 66-70, 13.0 GB
  5. Boston Red Sox – 59-76, 19.5 GB
