MLB Thoughts and Rankings 6/4

Rankings:

Top 10:

1.Astros, 2.Nationals, 3.Yankees, 4.Twins, 5.Brewers, 6.Nationals, 7.Dodgers, 7.Red Sox, 8.Indians, 9.Tigers and 10.Mariners

Players of the week

AL-George Springer (Astros) 15 for 30, 5 HR and 9 RBI

NL-Daniel Murphy (Nationals) 14 for 28, 1 HR and 7RBI

Pitchers of the week-

AL-Brad Peacock (Astros) 1-0 5.06 ERA, but had 17 Ks in that start and the Astros won

NL-Edson Volzquez (Marlins) 2-0  0.60 ERA, 14 Ks, 1 no hitter and 3 hits in his other start

Thoughts-

1.The Astros are the dominant team right now, good pitching and veteran hitting had made then fun to watch

2.Big series has the Yankees who had a struggling week ( 1 win at Baltimore and then split 4 in Toronto) come home to face the Red Sox who are playing well (beat the White Sox 2 out of 3 in Chicago, then split 4 against the Orioles) but, are in 2nd place, so this is a 1st vs 2nd place series.

3.The Nationals right now are the team to beat in the NL, could this be their year to make a playoff run?

Each Division Contenders:

AL-

East-Yankees, Red Sox and Orioles

Central-Twins, Indians and Tigers (The White Sox have cooled off and I do have them in the mix)

West-Astros (run away)

AL-

East-Nationals

Central-Brewers, Cubs and Cardinals

West-Rockies, Dbacks and Dodgers
