BtB Poor Man's Projected Season Standings as of July 3, 2009

Welcome to this holiday edition of the BtB Poor Man's Projected Season Standings. 

This week we see a lot more movement than in previous weeks with the brightest fireworks coming from the Chicago White Sox who vaulted seven wins from last Friday, and solidly into second place in the AL Central.

The Yankees jump four wins courtesy of their seven game win streak and overall better performance, while the Jays went four wins the other direction.  The AL East is still a dogfight with three teams between 95 and 97 wins.  If it stays close throughout it's going to be one heck of a September.

The Angels and Brewers take back the top spots they lost last week and are joined by new arrival Philadelphia who took advantage of the slumping Mets (who dropped five games).

In the NL West, the Dodgers dropped below 100 projected wins for the first time in this series, while the Giants continue their climb - reaching .500.  The division houses the two best teams right now in LA and Colorado, with San Francisco among the other top teams.

Full standings after the jump...
