MLB Rankings and Thoughts 4/22

Top 10:

1.Nationals, 2.Orioles, 3.Indians, 4.Astros, 5.Cubs, 6.Rockies, 7.Yankees, 8.Dbacks, 9.Reds and 10.Marlins

Next 5- 1.Tigers, 2.Phillies , 3.A’s , 4.Red Sox and 5.Dodgers

Thoughts-

1.The Orioles in 1st should be no shock, Buck Showalters teams always play well

2.The Mets dropped out as they are struggling with injuries but, they will be back

Bad Week-

AL-Blue Jays, bad in their 4-6 in their last 10 with a good roster should not happen

NL- Mets.  Looked bad against the Phillies losing 2 out of 3 and then the Nationals sweep them all 3 games

Good Week-

1.Indians-After a slow start they have turned it up winning 3 from the Twins and 2 out of 3 from the White Sox

2.Nationals-Red hot and playing to their potential, they swept the Mets in NY

Hard Week Ahead-

NL-Cubs (Tough road trip with 3 at the pesky Pirates then 3 at Boston at Fenway in a good interleague series)

AL-Yankees (3 at the Rival Red Sox then home for the Orioles for 3 games, 2 series that are not walk overs)

Honorable Mention-

NL- Nationals (3 at Rockies then they host the Mets for 3 who should have Cespedes back by then)

AL- Rays (3 games at Orioles then 3 at Blue Jays who are struggling but, with the roster they have they will get going soon)
