Every single team in the AL East is .500 or better. You hear that stat bandied about a lot these days, and it is a strange phenomenon. But here's my favorite fact about the division:
The second-place New York Yankees have a +33 run differential, but the first-place Orioles only have +3.
Wild, right? So wild.
Wait, that's not actually very wild? How about this: The third-place Tampa Bay Rays have a +8 differential, still better than the Orioles. And the fourth-place Blue Jays are at +30. And the last-place Red Sox? +19.
Every other team in the division has a better run differential than the team in first place.
