Those of you who haven't been seduced by the World Cup over the past week will know: Baseball is still going on.
We're in the middle of June, and things are heating up as we creep closer to the All-Star break. As it stands, we have two interesting divisional races in the AL Central and the NL East. The scorching-hot Royals just overtook the Tigers for first place in the AL Central, and a three-way race between the Braves, Nationals and Marlins has three NL East teams within a half game of each other.
Elsewhere, the Bay Area continues its reign over both leagues as the Giants and A's remain the best two teams in baseball. And in the Northeast, the Yankees, Red Sox and Mets continue to be mediocre to poor.
