- Sep 13, 2017MLB 1 Rangers 32-22
A poor week in Texas saw the Rangers struggle to a 3-6 record against some of the weaker teams in the league.
With the Mariners going 8-1,the division race promises to be a topsy turvey one with the Rangers currently holding a two game lead.
The only upside was the extra LP's generated which kept the balance in the black for another week at least.
MLB 5 Indians
The Indians shocked everyone in the draft by selecting number 66 Bradley Zimmer,the only centre fielder available.
On the field,a 3-2 national series win over the Angels saw the Indians move onto play the White Sox for a place in the national series final.
MLB 6 Red Sox 78-57
The Red Sox could clinch the AL East next week to give me my first division title,a 22 game lead over the Blue Jays with just 27 to play after going 5-4 this week.
The signing of Abraham Almonte improved the depth at left field going into the post season.
Boston are hoping to make another signing next week.
MLB 8 Brewers 4-14
A worse start than last year(5-13) in Milwaukee,after winning the opening two games against Pittsburgh,the Brewers lost seven on the bounce to prop up the NL Central.
Jose Samayoa was signed to replace Fernando Rincon to hopefully improve the bullpen.
Milwaukee will be hoping to make another signing this week as well.
MLB 21 Ray's 39-24
Tampa Bay kept in touch with the Angels going 7-2 this week,three games behind in the division and three games ahead of the Royals for the wild card.
Week eight will be a true test with series against the Angels and Red Sox,with the always tricky Twins in between.
