Saturday Bird Droppings

Another beautiful day in Birdland

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Camden Chatters. For those keeping track, last night the Yankees lost in spectacular fashion to the Red Sox, the Rays lost to the Mariners, the Indians won, and the A's won to officially take over first place in the A.L. West. I think it's time to forget about the A's/Rangers. The Rays are the team to beat and the Indians and Yankees are the teams to fend off. The Orioles are two games out of the second wild card, tied with Cleveland, 1/2 game ahead of New York.
