10. The Ongoing AL East vs. NL East Drama
I know I was hitting this theme hard last week, but I have to give fair warning that seven days later, nothing's changed. They're still the two best divisions in baseball, and the matchups this weekend —Yanks-Nats, Rays-Marlins, Phils-Jays, and O's-Braves — are damn good. We'll get more in depth later, but I thought this would be a good place for an update — since last Friday, the two divisions have played 27 games against each other. The result? 14-13 in favor of the AL East. So dramatic. I wish people kept closer track of this. There could be gambling pools, brackets, and even theme parties. I could finally wear my Mariano Rivera body suit. God, why did I spend $3,000 on that suit!
