Three games with the Rangers.

Your pitching matchups:

Hutchison (1-3, 4.37) vs Darvish (3-1, 2.33)
Buehrle (7-1, 2.04) vs Ross (1-4, 5.04)
Dickey (4-3, 4.53) vs Martinez (0-1, 2.38)

Topic for the discussion.  It's early days yet in the AL East, but the five teams in the division collectively have a losing record against the rest of the baseball world. There's no obvious weak sister in the pack to account for this, Tampa's surprisingly poor record notwithstanding. Has the AL East come down in the world?
