AL Central, 18 August 2007

When your team is out of the cellar in August for the first time in four years, it's time to celebrate:

Team W L Streak Pct. GB
Cleveland68 54 W3 .557
Detroit67 56 L2 .545 1 ½
Minnestota61 61 L1 .500 7
Kansas City55 67 W3 .451 13
Chicago54 68 L7 .443 14

Since 2004, the KC number in the “GB” column has usually been in the 30's, so being only 13 games back is a considerable improvement.

Taken on a recent visit. Note that slight resemblance to our cats. These however, are only about eight months old, though the black one has already had one litter.
