Some of the worst teams in baseball are playing the hottest lately. The Royals, Padres, and Blue Jays who are 18th, 19th and 23rd in the Power Rankings respectively, all are 8-2 over their last ten games played.
San Diego is now a game above .500, and thanks to Arizona losing 3 in a row, they moved to within 2 games of the D-Backs for first in the NL West. They still sit at 4th in the division, and 6 out of the wild-card spot, but they are only half a game behind San Francisco, and 1.5 games behind Colorado, as they need to catch those teams first.
The rest of the NL has been playing pretty dismal lately. No other team has won more than 2 in a row. The entire Central division is 6-4 in their last 10 games played, except for the Cubs who are 4-6, and in the East, no team is playing better than .500 in their last 10 games.
In the AL, the Blue Jays have won 5 straight and 8 of 10, but remain 8.5 back of Boston for the East lead. They upped their playoff % chance to 12.1, but are the only team in the division with negative runs scored/ allowed differential at -15. They are just 5.5 out of a wild card spot, however, so if they keep playing this way, they may make up some ground before the All-Star break.
In the Central, the Tigers are still playing good ball. They won 7 of 10 and have a 4.5 game lead over the Indians. The Royals have won 8 of 10, and moved within a half game of the Indians for 2nd in the division; 4 out of the wild card spot.
This week starts off with some good match-ups. The Cubs are at the Cardinals. Although Chicago is not in contention this year, the rivalry is one of the greatest sports rivalries going, and it always makes for an entertaining series. Also, the Rangers host the A's. Texas lost 6 in a row and is now 3 games behind Oakland for the AL West lead so this will also be a series to keep an eye on as the week in baseball kicks off, and the NBA and NHL finals come to a close.............
