Right now there are a few teams who don't really have a great record, but are only a few games out of first place.

Astros: Few times this year have the Astros been more than five games above .500, but as the division is weak, they still have a shot.  Miguel Tajada, who I almost forgot about, has been hitting .350, this veteran is carrying his whole team of veterans!  Do the Astros have what it takes to take over the division?

The whole AL Central! The Tigers have an average record and lead the division by a game, how someone with a .533 win percentage leads a division is beyond me, but they may still make the post season.  The White Sox are now heating up, a game back of the Tigers, and with no shot at the wild card, between the Red Sox and Yankees, the White Sox NEED to win this division....

Who would have thought these records will be playing in October?
