Junkees in First, Barely

Oh, this is great for baseball. The $200 million behemoth is in first place. So much for parity, Mr. Selig. Just wait till the Nationals fall apart.

That said, the Yankee lead in first is about as tenuous as it gets. You have not one, but two clubs just a half game out. When the lack of pitching starts catching up to the Junkees, that lead will not last, unless both the O's and Red Sox do poorly. So who knows, maybe this is the just the Yankees' moment in the sun.

The only solace I have about the Yankees being in first is that in March, I predicted they would end up there. But I sure hope I end up wrong on that one.

Didn't last long -- Junkies back in second place after blowing it in late innings.
