Notes about this week's Power Rankings:

There's a shakeup near the top! Arizona plummets while Colorado rises and let me assure you it has absolutely nothing to do with Kyle Freeland's near no-no.

Minnesota makes a move into the top ten due to some consistent play and winning half of their last ten games.

The Yankees continue to slide while the law of averages seems to catch up to them after their early season success.

The Cubs continue their downfall as they still struggle to get near the .500 mark. Even the return of Kyle Schwarber can't help them now, though few thought it actually would.

Did you see what happened to the Blue Jays on Sunday? Losing 19-1 is not a way to feel good going into the All-Star break. Being in last place in the A.L. East is not a good way either, but all that separates them from last and second is five games.

There is a new member of the bottom four. The Detroit Tigers. They did mange to go 5-5 in their last 10 games, however they are still a bad baseball team. With rumors of basically half of their roster on the trading block, the time to blow it up in Detroit is now.
