21. Texas Rangers (3-4) The Rangers have alternated wins and losses to start the season, landing them at 3-4. In their wins, they have allowed two or less runs; in their losses, five or more. It will be like that throughout the season more than likely for the Rangers, as their pitching staff is suspect as a whole, and their lineup has some holes. It is nice to see Prince Fielder back and healthy on the field. He has performed well the first week of the season, slashing .379/.438/.488 with three RBI and even strikeout to walk ratio at 2:2.

20. San Francisco Giants (3-4) They are getting hit hard by injuries, already without outfielder Hunter Pence, who was joined by Matt Cain. Jake Peavy is batting back problems, and Madison Bumgarner was chased from his last start after just three innings by the Padres, whom they lost three of four to. Thier lone victory in that series came in extra innings, and were lucky to escape Opening Day against the Diamondbacks. It is only the first week of the season, but the Giants could be in trouble.

19. Oakland Athletics (3-4) The Athletics split their opening series against the Texas Rangers, and can thank in large part Nelson Cruz for not sweeping the Mariners in the following series. They have to like what they saw from Drew Pomeranz in his first start of the season and the start their offense is off to. The Athletics currently rank second in runs scored in MLB and fourth in BA with nine players hitting .286 or higher aided by 21 extra base hits already.
