1. New York Yankees
The Yankees have gotten off to a hot start, taking their first four series for the first time since 1927. All of that without Teixeira or A-Rod showing any power.
2. Minnesota Twins
No bias here, as the Twins are legitimately a World Series contender in 2010. The have a great blend of power and speed up and down the lineup, and their rotation has been better than advertised.
3. Philadelphia Phillies
The Phillies have the best arm in the National League to go along with the best lineup, and they have played great in the early going. Cole Hamels has two wins, though has not pitched great.
4. San Francisco Giants
With their rotation, the Giants should be the favorite to win in the very tight National League West. Lincecum proved he can do it with the bat and the arm on Saturday.
5. Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have a nice young lineup, but there are questions as to whether they will be kept together. Matt Garza will go for his third win of the young season on Sunday.
7. Toronto Blue Jays
The surprise of the American League East to start the season, the Jays have gotten some great pitching, even with the loss of Halladay. Vernon Wells looks to be in his best form in years.
11. Atlanta Braves
The Braves have the best rookie in the league, but they have been shaky in 2010. Some games they look great, other games they cant hit, and they will need to be more consistent if they want to challenge in the NL East.
12. Oakland Athletics
The A's locked up 21-year old ace Brett Anderson on Saturday, and will try to lock up Andrew Bailey and Kurt Suzuki this season. Ryan Sweeney looks good in the middle of that lineup.
13. Arizona Diamondbacks
The D-Backs are trying to piece together their rotation until Brandon Webb gets back, and will look to Ian Kennedy on Sunday. Kennedy looked great in his first start, but was blasted his last time out.
14. Pittsburgh Pirates
A great surprise to the 2010 season, the Pirates have a nice young lineup, and slugger Garrett Jones already has ten runs batted in. Iwamura has been a good table-setter at the top of that lineup.
17. Boston Red Sox
The Sox have gotten off to a slow start to 2010, but will turn it around. Dice-K has looked great in the Minor Leagues, and will likely be recalled very soon.
18. Cleveland Indians
The Indians wanted to build their lineup around Shin-Soo Choo, and it is looking like a great idea. Justin Masterson has been a strikeout machine, and Fausto Carmona has also pitched well.
20. Washington Nationals
The Nationals have not been terrible in 2010, and are awaiting the arrival of future ace Steven Strasburg. He has been lights out in the Minors, and could be in Washington very soon.
22. Cincinnati Reds
Scott Rolen seems to have found his power stroke, though his batting average is very low for his standards. Mike Leake did not look overmatched in his Major League debut, which is a great sign.
23. Los Angeles Dodgers
Maybe the biggest underachievers in the early season, the Dodgers need to make a move in the NL West. Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier are two of the better young outfielders I have seen in a long time.
25. Kansas City Royals
The Royals are already digging themselves a hole in the AL Central, though they will get Alex Gordon back starting on Sunday. Their lineup has looked very well though, Podsednik, Guillen, Kendall, and Ankiel are all hitting.
27. Chicago White Sox
There always seems to be turmoil in Chicago, and it is usually started by the Manager. The team has to be happy with what they are getting from Andruw Jones, but no regular position player is batting over .300.
28. New York Mets
The Mets have been a joke in 2010, and people are already calling for Jerry Manuel's job. David Wright seems to have regained his power stroke, and Jeff Francoeur has looked good, but the team just looks lost.
30. Baltimore Orioles
No-one expected the Orioles to challenge in the AL East this season, but no-one saw this coming. The Orioles have won only one game to start the season, and have already been riddled by injuries.
