BtB Poor Man's Projected Season Standings as of August 7, 2009

It's the first week in August and we're finally starting to see some separation in most of the divisions. 

The AL East still has a chance for a three team race for two spots, although the Rays continue to underperform their rankings.

The White Sox and the Tigers are projected to battle down to the wire, while the Twins hang around just behind, and the Royals flirt with 100 losses.

The Angels appear to have sealed up the AL West, despite an impressive effort from Texas.

Ditto for Philly and Atlanta.  The Marlins have stayed close record-wise, but they're definitely winning more than would be expected from their component stats. 

While the NL Central has been a mishmash of four to six teams for most of the season, it's now looking like a mishmash of two teams - the Cardinals and the Cubs.

The Dodgers show no sign of relinquishing the NL West and the Rockies look to have a leg up on the Giants for the Wild Card.  The Diamondbacks continue to confound; playing at a well above .500 level, but with a record 10 games below.  What goes around, comes around, I suppose.

Full standings after the jump...
