The Detroit Tigers and Oakland Athletics are two of the hottest teams in baseball. But how do they affect the top 10? Or maybe even the top five?
1. New York Yankees (57-38)- Even though the Yankees got swept out of Oakland, losing every game by one run. For the first time in franchise history. The Yankees still swept the Toronto Blue Jays and remain at the top of the AL East as the best team in baseball.
2. Texas Rangers (56-38)- The Rangers played a huge series against their division rival the Los Angeles Angels this past week. The Rangers managed to take one game, but Mike Napoli had no problems. Since being traded from the Angeles, Napoli has hit .386/.491/.761 with eight home runs and 14 RBIs against his former squad. Roy Oswalt was scratched from his latest start due to a back injury. No word yet if he’ll miss anymore time.
