At the top …
We have the Dodgers and Astros at one and two once again. The Dodgers are playing unbelievable baseball right now and they are the best team as of now. The Astros are not very far behind, as these are the only two teams with at least 60 wins so far this season. At the three spot this week we have the Nationals. They still have bullpen issues that need to be fixed, but their starting pitching and lineup is a force to be reckoned with.

At the bottom …
The Phillies have no hope. They’re awful and they will probably be the worst team in the league for the rest of the year. They are the only team who has yet to reach 30 wins. They are followed by the disappointing Giants, who dropped two spots this week, and the A’s who are not very good at all. The Giants drop two spots this week because they have lost their last four games. It’s the only reason the A’s and the Padres have risen a spot.

Other notes …
The Brewers jump up four spots as they have been hot as of late. They have won 8 of their last 10 games ad now hold a 5.5 game lead over the second place Cardinals. The Rays jump into the top 10 as the Yankees and Royals have been ice cold. The Pirates jump into the top 20 and it does not have much to do with the type of baseball they have been playing. It has more to do with how bad the bottom of the league has been this year.

I'm a washed up D3 college baseball player who is pursuing their MBA in Accounting. I love baseball, basketball, and football; while rooting for the New York Mets, New York Knicks, and New York Giants. Most of the time it is full of misery. I have recently found a passion for writing about sports. I have posted a few articles for Last Word on Sports and I have now created my own website (the-sportstalk.com).
