Notes about the Power Rankings:

Astros have been on a hot streak, they are absolutely deserving of the number one spot, barely inching out the Nationals.

Indians bats and pitching appeared to come alive on Sunday. Tito shuffling the lineup and somehow having faith in Trevor Bauer to have a good outing paid off.

Cubs continue to slip. Injuries are playing a big part, but every team has injuries. Makes you think if last year was a fluke.

K-Rod is out as the closer in Detroit and that won't solve all of their problems. Their starting pitching is Verlander, and that's it. Fulmer while impressive, doesn't impress me, throws a lot of junk and relies on undisciplined teams to swing uncontrollably.

Bottom four teams continue to switch their positions. Royals, Giants, Padres and Braves are destined to be bottom feeders this season.
