Red Sox and Yankees
The Red Sox and Yankees have had TWELVE lead changes in the division race so far this season. I went back and checked the past few years, since the Red Sox got good in 2003, and this is really quite remarkable. They've never had as close of a race before across the entire season like this. Even in 2005 when they finished tied at the end, the Red Sox were actually leading by 3 games or so for most of the season. I suppose it makes it slightly less exciting that the loser of the race is practically guaranteed to get the Wild Card spot, but still, this is quite a race!
