Baseball World Championship Belt Update: Sweeps Week

The American League, the experts say, is different than the National League. Add having the Baseball World Championship Belt to the list of differences. After spending much of May in the NL, the Atlanta Braves got swept by the Boston Red Sox, the original holders of the 2014 Belt. Feeling rather sweepy, the Sox retained the Belt with 3-0 sweep of the lethargic Tampa Bay Rays. Wait, what's that? There was a beanball war between the two teams? And David Price was suspended? He wasn't? Why again? Oh, because umpires.

Fact of the matter is, Red Sox Nation was handling being World Champions of Baseball for two straight series with their usual grace and dignity. Until Cleveland came along, with brooms, and won four straight over the streaky sweepy Sox. Just like everybody else, the Belt just wants to flee to the Cleve.

After a 3-1 series victory at the Ballpark in Arlington by the Clevers, the Belt has started to get attached to racist mascots and that sweet Cuyahoga air. Also, Johnny Football. Next up, the Belt travels to Kansas City, where the Royals need to win 2 of 2 to make their existence worthwhile.

Standings:

  1. Boston Red Sox - 4 Series
  2. Colorado Rockies - 4 Series
  3. Milwaukee Brewers - 3 Series
  4. Cleveland Indians - 2 Series
  5. St. Louis Cardinals - 2 Series
  6. Atlanta Braves - 1 Series
  7. Cincinnati Reds - 1 Series
  8. San Diego Padres - 1 Series
