With the Mets losing to Braves, their lead in the NY Metro Area race over the Yankees was cut to just one game. However, the Mets will be hosting Florida over the weekend and the Yankees will be in Cleveland. The Mets and Yankees had the same record in 2006.
Last night, there was a change atop the Maryland/DC Metro Area race as the Nationals edged ahead of the Orioles by .001. This taut and gripping race promises to go down to the wire. The Nationals will be in Arizona this weekend while the Orioles host the Red Sox. The tension along the B-W Parkway is at a fever pitch I hear.
The Cubs, Angels, and Athletics all have healthy leads in their races.
