One note on the big boys before I get into the minor league report. The Orioles lost last night while the Yanks were off, which means the Yanks are tied for first with Baltimore. The Yanks have a big weekend series with the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend.
AL East Standings:
YANKEES 42-37 —
Orioles 42-37 —
Tampa Bay 42-39 -1
Toronto 42-39 -1
Boston 37-44 -6
