As September quickly approaches lets take a couple of looks at the Division races taking place. The only one that's already decided is the AL Central, the other 5 should be a battle through the end of September. AL WEST Team Record Games Back Houston Astros 64-53 - Los Angeles Angels 60-56 3.5 Seattle Mariners 60-57 4 Texas Rangers 53-63 10.5 Oakland Athletics 47-70 17 The AL West currently belongs to the Houston Astros. After 4 years of mediocrity the 'Stros have turned it around with some of their high picks coming up and producing. I think they'll stay on top, and extend their league as we approach late September. They just have too much offensive firepower for the Angels to catch up. AL EAST Team Record Games Back Baltimore Orioles 61-55 - Tampa Bay Rays 56-59 4.5 Boston Red Sox 54-60 6 New York Yankees 51-67 11 Toronto Blue Jays 49-67 12 The AL East is pretty terrible right now with only the O's over .500. I don't see anybody catching them either. With the best offense in the American League, they should be able to hold on to the division. The Rays have the talent to go on a run, but that bullpen is just atrocious. AL CENTRAL Team Record Games Back Detroit Tigers 76-40 - Cleveland Indians 58-57 17.5 Kansas City Royals 57-59 19 Chicago White Sox 56-60 20 Minnesota Twins 53-63 23 This is a pretty straight forward division here. The Tigers have been rolling since the All Star break and are going to win this division. The Indians may be able to make a Wild Card run if the Mariners hit a rough patch, but its looking like the 2 Wild Cards will come out of the West in LA and Seattle.
