Around the League-AL East

Here is what's going on in the AL East by tk21775

AL East looks like they could have 3 teams make the playoffs this season the way they've started out of the gates. Boston is currently in 1st with a 35-20 record where Diego Valbuena is still earning his paycheck with a 9-1 record (Tied for 1st in ML in wins) and is currently 4th in era. Rochester is right behind with a 32-23 record, a team that has Tony Caballero hitting balls into the seats quite often as he's tied for 1st in home runs. Durham finds itself in 3rd place but with a 31-24 record! They've got the bats going as Fred Inge is 7th in batting avg. in the majors and Hector Janssen is 10th in home runs. Pittsburgh rounds out the division with a 21-34 record, currently tied for 3rd in team defense but putting up a 3-11 record in 1 run games. I have to think with a strong defense they could start winning of a few of those close ones soon.
