Five To Go

Of summer, five games remain.

The Yankees, the Red Sox, and the Indians are tied. The White Sox have a two game lead on the Indians, but that used to be a fifteen game lead -- and the ChiSox are terribly shaky.

It's not quite that childhood summer -- was it 1967? -- when Detroit, Boston, Minnesota, and Chicago all went into the final weekend. But this is probably the best pennant race possible now that we're stuck with playoffs and divisions.
