MLB Standings: Despite Improvements, Red Sox Still Sitting In Middle Of AL East

Considering the Red Sox got off to a 2-10 start and possessed the worst record in baseball for the first few weeks of the season, third place doesn't seem all that bad, no?

Boston (15-18) enters Mother's Day in third place in the American League East standings, tied with the Toronto Blue Jays, as both teams are four games back of first place. The Red Sox are 5-5 in their last ten games and are 9-9 at home this season while posting a 6-9 mark on the road.

Sitting atop the AL East are the New York Yankees (no surprise there) and the Tampa Bay Rays (wait...what?), as both are tied for first. New York has a record of 18-13 while Tampa Bay boasts a record of 19-14.

Here's a look at the complete MLB standings as of 1 p.m. on Sunday.
