June power rankings

It's the end of month No. 3 of the Major League Baseball season. So let's rank the teams in each league. As the All-Star break approaches, here's how the American League rankings look:

1. Boston -- By a hair over the Angels. Sox need to find their missing offense.

2. Los Angeles -- Swept at home by the Royals, but bounce back in Charm City.

3. Detroit -- No shame in getting handled by Santana -- by Texas' staff is another thing altogether.

4. Cleveland -- Indians have great last at-bat karma.

5. Seattle -- Maybe a little high, but they own the Red Sox at Safeco (eight straight Ws).

6. Oakland -- Good thing teams aren't limited to number of DL trips.

7. Minnesota -- Santana starting his summer surge.

8. New York -- Who will The Boss allow Brian Cashman to trade for this year?

9. Toronto -- Consistently inconsistent.

10. Baltimore -- How in the world did Aubrey Huff hit a triple?

11. Tampa Bay -- Every time they get close to .500, Rays slide right back.

12. Texas -- Rangers showing signs of life three months too late.

13. Kansas City -- Royals snap skid of 22 straight losing months with 15-win (and counting) June.

14. Chicago -- Please keep Ozzie Guillen. He's the one entertaining part of this team.
