Sox #1 and Tigers #2 (:o: tied with Cincinnati :o:).

When's the last time that happened? Never?

Even though their record didn't show it and they missed the playoffs I'll say last year with the White Sox and Cleveland.

Well, I'm going strictly based on record/win %. Last year, the Cardinals won 100 games, so they were the #1 team for most of the year. The Jndjans only won 93 games, so they couldn't have been #2 at any point.

It's the first week of May. Teams haven't gotten to play around the league yet.

The No. 30 team in MLB aslo happens to be from teh AL Central, too.

If I am correct, I do believe the White Sox had a better record than the Cardinals for most of the year.

Actually, I think you're right. The Sox were the first team to 20, 30, etc. wins after the Dodgers faded after starting 12-2. But my point was that the Jndjans were never on the Cardinals' level.

I just checked, and the Cardinals passed the Sox record for best in baseball on Weds. Aug 17th, so they were in the lead for all Sept and part of Aug. Your points taken though, if it happened at all last season it was the very beginning before things started to even out. Probably wasn't even the Indians either if 2 teams in the central were 1,2.

Didn't this happen for a brief period just last year? I seem to recall the Sox and Twins having the best records in the AL for a bit early in the season but I don't know if the Twins were ahead of the Cardinals.

Cincy couldn't figure out how to score even a single run at Coors Field, but the Miracle Mets pulled out a steal with great catch and then a extra inning HR to stay 1/2 game behind the Sox

Al Central is the weakest division.

Tigers will pan out and start to suck. The pitching is too weak.

The Tigers still have to play us 16 times. They're ****ed. Enjoy it while it lasts.

They were number two for 2 weeks in sept last year on cbs anyway
