RK Team RECORD CHANGE HIGH/LOW COMMENTS
1

41-22 - 1/9
Thanks to their dominant pitching staff, the Cardinals are still the team on top. Adam Wainwright has been nearly unstoppable, with a 10-3 record and a 2.18 ERA in 14 starts this season, entering this week.

38-27 3 2/17
The Athletics took advantage of the Rangers’ recent slump to claim the top spot in American League West and build a three-game lead on their division rivals as they head to Texas for four games trying to remain in first.

3

37-26 3 2/13
While the offense, led by leadoff hitter Shin-Shoo Choo and MVP candidate Joey Votto, is keeping up its dominance, the return of Johnny Cueto to the rotation will surely help the Reds in a tough National League Central race.

4

39-25 1 1/20
Of all the turnarounds on this year’s Red Sox team compared to last season’s disaster, pitcher Clay Buchholz’s has been one of the most impressive. He has yet to lose a game while sporting a 1.71 ERA entering this week.

5

35-28 6 4/15
Chris Davis entered this week leading the majors with 23 home runs. The rest of the O’s lineup isn’t to be taken lightly, either.

6

37-26 3 1/27
With each passing week, the Pirates appear to look like the team that will finally end Pittsburgh’s baseball frustrations with a winning season and maybe even a playoff berth.

7

39-24 5 1/10
The Braves didn’t have much luck in San Diego against the surprisingly hot Padres, but they rebounded during the weekend, taking two of three from the Giants at home.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
8

35-26 1 2/11
The Tigers haven’t dominated the AL Central, as they were expected by many to do. However, there might not be a more complete team than Detroit this year.

9

37-25 5 1/14
Not long ago, the Rangers looked to have their tickets punched to return to the World Series this season. Now, this team could be in danger of missing the playoffs. The Rangers' bats have gone cold.

37-26 2 3/23
Are the Yankees starting to show their true colors after coming away with only one win last week? After all, many expected this to be a down year in the Bronx.

11

35-28 1 7/17
Fireworks flew against the Dodgers earlier in the week, but the Diamondbacks appeared to run out of energy against the Padres.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

29-34 5 12/29
From a team no one expected to make any noise this season, there is no hotter team in the league. The Padres entered this week one game above .500 for the first time this season, riding a six-game winning streak.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

33-29 - 1/23
If the Giants could get their once-dominant pitching staff back to form, this team would be nearly unstoppable with a lineup that has produced well to keep the team afloat.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

34-28 2 2/22
The loss of one of the team's best pitchers, Alex Cobb, after a line drive off his head won’t help a struggling rotation. The Rays hope highly touted prospect Wil Myers can help produce more runs after getting the call to the majors.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

34-30 1 4/23
Troy Tulowitzki was having an MVP-caliber season until the shortstop landed on the disabled list. At least Colorado still has Carlos Gonzalez to anchor the strong lineup in Tulowitzki’s absence.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

28-32 4 5/26
After falling off the map only a few weeks ago, the Royals are slowing climbing back into the race. The starting pitching has been excellent, but KC needs the lineup to start holding up its own.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

27-35 1 8/27
They aren’t exactly where they would have liked to have been at this point in the season, but the Blue Jays appear to have righted the ship after a disastrous start.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

31-31 3 3/18
The Nationals expected to have a record a lot better than .500 at this point of the season. Despite this, Washington is still in a good position to turn things around if its lineup can start to hit to its potential.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

30-32 - 5/26
The Indians turned around a bad run with a good one this past week, taking two straight series, from the Rangers and Nationals, to return to .500.

31-33 4 12/27
Cole Hamels just notched his 10th loss of the season on Sunday against the Rockies. That helps explain how far the Phillies are removed from their success of years past.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

27-33 1 19/27
The Twins pitching staff ranks near the bottom of the league despite what were supposed to be improvements in the offseason. Minnesota appears to be far from contention any time soon.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

27-36 1 2/26
Instead of Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton leading the Angels offensively, it has been the young duo of Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

27-37 3 17/27
The Mariners showed they still have some fight left in them, taking two games from the surging Athletics last week in Oakland behind excellent pitching.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

27-35 3 1/25
The Dodgers showed some spark in a brawl against the Diamondbacks that made headlines last week, but they failed to bring that flame to the field in another disappointing week.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

25-35 1 20/28
Carlos Marmol, while filling in for Kevin Gregg at closer, couldn’t hold down the lead as the Mets won on a walk-off home run Sunday. Saving games still eludes the once-dominant closer.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

25-37 1 15/30
The Brewers shut out an opponent for the first time all season Saturday at Cincinnati. They were the last team in the majors to get a shutout in 2013.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

27-34 2 14/29
Ten games below .500 lands the White Sox among the bottom-feeders in the majors despite a decent pitching rotation. Chicago needs more production from the lineup.

22-42 1 28/30
Jason Castro, the Astros' 2008 first-round pick, is finally starting to show he belongs in the majors, helping Houston win 12 of 20 games entering this week.

23-35 1 16/29
David Wright and Matt Harvey can’t do it all for the Mets. This team needs a lot of work to get back to relevancy.

18-44 - 27/30
The Marlins came away with some good news last week, taking two out of three to win a series against the Cardinals, who own the best record in the majors.
