What a Difference a Day Makes in Mercurial AL East »

There is a reason why people say "You can't predict baseball." Teams have to actually play out all 162 games. And one day in August does not make or break a team's chances in October.

(stealing a quote from "Dodgeball").  Everyone was ready to jump down Teixeira's throat, I one of those people.
