Standings on their head

Get your flip flops on for a quick check of the American League standings.  First place in the East: Baltimore, in the Central: Kansas City, in the West: Seattle.  What do all three have in common?  All finished last in 2008. (okay I assumed the Royals finished last. What you blame me? They finished next to last just in front of Detroit).

Can’t say nine days into the year it’s a monumental accomplishment, or that I expect the trend to continue much longer, but for the time being it provides a smile for some rather down trodden teams. 

And in Batlimore, where the streak of losing seasons has nearly reached middle school age, taking the first three series of the campaign has folks bleeding orange.  Not so much for the rest of 2009, although knowing this team will score runs makes it more fun to watch, it’s seeing the future come to life. 

Adam Jones looks like a staple for the next decade in center field, and last night in Arlington, he showed his promise at the plate (1:35 into the video please):
