BtB Poor Man's Projected Season Standings as of July 10, 2009

I know, I know, I said I get these up by 3 pm on Friday.  All I can say is that it's 3 pm somewhere (Samoa, I think).

The Phillies rebound from a horrible couple of weeks to gain four wins and jump out to a projected seven game division cushion over the Braves.  The Mets continue their fall, dropping another three games, for a total of eight in the past two weeks alone.  Something tells me trading for Jeff Francouer is not the way to halt that slide.

The Jays are another team that's falling fast. The early surprises in the AL East (if not all of baseball) are returning to the place everyone thought they would be before the season: top half of teams in the AL, but fourth in the division.  The Yankees are this week's leaders in the group of death, although both Boston and Tampa Bay are very close.

The AL West looks like a two team race, even though Seattle is hanging close at the moment.  New GM Jack Zduriencik seems uncertain as to whether the M's will buy or sell at the deadline.  Perhaps they'll just stand pat.

The Giants keep creeping up our rankings, now two games over .500.  They've still got a ways to go before edging out the Rockies for the Wild Card, but they're now projected to have the fifth best record in the NL (tied with Milwaukee).

Speaking of Milwaukee, they swap places with the Cardinals, falling back to second place.  Dropping two of three head-to-head can do that to you.  The rest of the division is quite tightly packed.  Unfortunately for them, they're all on the wrong side of .500.

The AL Central isn't much better.  Chicago and Detroit are battling it out for the division lead, as the White Sox gain another two games and vault over the Tigers to the projected division crown.  KC and Cleveland battle it out for the cellar while the Twins do what the Twins do best - keep it close and then maybe pull it out in the end.

Full standings after the jump...
