Rays Poised to Overtake the Yankees
The New York Yankees have held a commanding lead in the American League East for much of the season. The upstart Orioles have remained within striking distance despite their lopsided run differential and ever changing starting rotation. The Tampa Bay Rays hovered around .500 during Evan Longoria’s extended stint on the disabled list. Now that Longoria is back in the middle of Tampa’s order the Rays are poised to surpass the Yanks.
