6. Boston Red Sox (4-2) We have already seen Cy Young potential Clay Buchholz and dumpster fire Clay Buchholz and the season is only one week old! The Red Sox took series from the Philadelphia Phillies and Yankees to start the season, as they have the makings of one of the best lineups in baseball. If they can get consistency from Buchholz like he showed on Opening Day, or land someone like Cole Hamels who would surely rather have the support of this lineup than pitch against it again, this team will be trouble. Right now, they sort of resemble an east coast Rockies of sorts with so many pitching questions.

5. Toronto Blue Jays (4-2) The Blue Jays took the first two series of the season beating AL East foes. They battered Masahiro Tanaka on Opening Day, and if not for one bad inning against the New York Yankees, they could have swept them and been 5-1. They already have six home runs on the season, as the Blue Jays have an offense you will want to watch whenever they aren’t playing against your favorite team.

4. Colorado Rockies (4-2) When they are healthy, they have arguably the best lineup in baseball. Staying healthy is not something Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez have been able to do in recent seasons though, leading to some bad performances from the Rockies. Pitching is always a problem for the Rockies in the thin air of Coors Field as well. For one week they had things clicking, landing them right along with the Braves for biggest surprises of the first week.
