This season has been one of many ups and downs for many teams in Major League Baseball. From winning streaks to losing streaks and from perfection to injuries, there are a multitude of storylines. Let's see what songs best represent different teams throughout the league. Keep in mind, this is according to the title of the song, not the lyrics.
The Mets have been on the border of being playoff-worthy the entire season. Every time it seems as if they have crossed that border, they fall back beneath it.
We'll see if they can get over that border as the season progresses.
The Rays can't stop winning. They have by far the best record in the majors and don't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
The A's and Padres have defied the odds—both currently sit atop their respective divisions after being predicted to finish in last place. The A's and Dallas Braden (left), have pursued happiness in the best way—a perfect game. We'll see if these teams are for real as the season moves along.
No one ever talks about the Twins. Well, once again, they are in first place in their division. And they can say, "told you so." They're certainly not surprised at their success.
Help—That is exactly what the O's need. They have the worst record in the league.
I can answer the question regarding where they're going. Nowhere. Roy Oswalt wants out, and the team is in last place in the division.
The Braves have slowly crept up on the NL East, and now find themselves in first place in the division. They clearly have always believed.
They're gasping out in the Arizona desert. They can't win, or even find the ball (left), for that matter.
The Phillies and their offense are going down, down, down. And they're not even in first place in the NL East. Ouch.
The Cubs better be careful. They're getting eerily close to the bottom of their division. They're halfway gone, and need to make a run to prevent themselves from being all-they-way gone.
Even though the Yankees are in second place in the AL East, they are still a very dangerous team, and always will be. They have even become physically dangerous, as evidence by A-Rod's liner that smacked Indians pitcher David Huff.
The Nats have finally reached respectability after two straight disastrous seasons in DC. They are consistently around .500, and may end up being in the wild-card chase, which means a lot for this team that has been so horrendous in seasons past.
