10. Boston Red Sox (7-5) The Red Sox pounded the Nationals twice to start the week, but ended on a bit of a low note, losing three of four to end the week. What is troubling is who they lost those games at the end of the week to, as the Baltimore Orioles won the series. If the Red Sox are to make noise this season, they have to pitch better against teams like the Orioles. There is no doubts that this team cannot hit, but on the mound there are some question marks.

9. Colorado Rockies (7-5) A sweep of the Giants had people turning some heads, as the Rockies did it on the backs of their pitchers, not their lineup. Things then came crashing back to earth, as the Dodgers would sweep them over the weekend as the Rockies’ pitching went south and the offense couldn’t pick them up. The Rockies also made a change at the back end of their bullpen, as Adam Ottavino has replaced Latroy Hawkins for the time being. Series against the Padres and Giants will once again test the Rockies to see if this start is for real.

8. Baltimore Orioles (7-5) The Orioles just continue to go about their business, as they won both their series this past week,disposing of AL East foes in the Yankees and Red Sox. That could have been a sweep by the Orioles over the Red Sox had Ubaldo Jimenez not been ejected for throwing at Pablo Sandoval. At the plate Adam Jones looks like a legitimate MVP candidate, as he is slashing .457/.490/.848 thus far on the season, leading the Orioles in every offensive statistic.
