MLB: Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the Monday Boil!

Although we think of the All-Star break as the midpoint to the regular season, it’s closer to the 9/16th point. Thing is, that just doesn’t have the same ring to it. The Astros head to the break as winners in 50 of their first 91 through the season, setting a pace to finish with an 89-73 record. If the season were to end today, Houston would begin their title defense on the road against the Baltimore Orioles in the Wildcard series, while the Blue Jays would start in Cleveland. The Yankees would be watching from their couch.
