What Are The Current American League East Standings
Here you will find the current American League East Division standings. The American League East contains baseball's most traditional, and perhaps its most bitter rivalry, the annual battle between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.
A heated competition ever since 1919, when the Red Sox sold the contract of star Babe Ruth to the Yankees, ending their dominance of big-league baseball and turning the Yankees into the best team in the game, it took the Red Sox until 2004 to exorcise the demons of the so-called Curse of the Bambino, rallying from a 3-0 series deficit in the American League Champonship Series to beat the Yankees in seven games en route to a World Series sweep of the Colorado Rockies.
