The Boston Red Sox have built themselves a comfortable lead in the AL East.

Every day of the MLB season is interconnected, so developments from the first half of September give us terrific insight into how contending teams will fare during the rest of this month.

Each of the clubs who still have a pulse in the playoff races received report cards evaluating their performances from Sept. 1-14.

Elevated run scoring and dominant pitching resulted in higher grades. Getting healthier at this pivotal stage of the summer also serves as a tremendous advantage, particularly when impact players rejoin the fray.

These report cards will reveal contenders' strengths while exposing soft spots where they'll need to make immediate adjustments.
