Notes about the Power Rankings:

The top four is exactly the same as last week. Dodgers, Astros, Diamondbacks, Nationals. But number five is a new face. The Indians. Their offense is exactly what was expected from spring training. Strong starts from their starting pitching propels them to number five.

The Rockies and Yankees continue their slide down the Power Rankings. They must turn it around soon if they want to save their season.

It has to be full blown panic time in Chicago. The Cubs keep hanging around .500 and the Brewers seem to be for real. A wild card spot could be their best shot at the postseason.

It's like a broken record with the Tigers. When will they fire Ausmus and blow the team up? They are in dead last in the A.L. Central and Verlander got shelled by the Tribe. Don't let Verlander accuse the Indians of stealing signs change your mind, things are not well in Detroit.

The Athletics, Padres, Giants and Phillies round out the bottom four and they are all downright awful. Even though the Giants have won six in a row, they are still 15 games back of first in the N.L. West.
