How did I learn that the Rays won the AL East and the Yanks slipped down to the Wild Card?
Nothing about the Rays winning the AL East. Instead the Yankees lose out and still get the acclaim. Granted this is an MLBShop headline, and not an actual headline. So what about the actual headlines?
Again, we see nothing about the Rays WINNING the AL East. Instead it’s all about the Yankees winning the Wild Card. The Wild Card people.
That’s a shame. This is MLB.com we’re talking about, not the New York Times. You’d expect to see them make some sort of attempt at evenhandedness, but that’s not the case. Just another example of how people forget that baseball exists outside of New York and Boston.
