Newsletter for games through 7-3

This is being composed outdoors at 4:30pm swim lesson in 90 degree weather….which means it will be brief.

NOTABLE:   The fantasy Pirates are streaking, just like their real-life equivalent…which might put 5 contenders in the NL East…the NL West beat up on everyone, with 4 of 5 teams posting winning records…The Yankees continue to charge in the AL East…KC is in 4th in the AL central, but has the best WOR in the division…Mike Gortenburg sent around an email about a terrific showing from CC Sabathia, who used only 101 pitches to get through 11.67 innings; David Robertson pitched the last 1/3rd of the 12th inning and got the win…Detroit went 2-4 but took the lead in the AL Central…The west may be best; 7 of 9 teams in the 2 western divisions have plus-WOR figures, compared to only 2 of 10 in the eastern divisions…
