AL power rankings

As the calendar flips from July to August, let's take a look at how the AL power rankings shape up.

1. Boston -- Biggest division lead in baseball counts for something.
2. Los Angeles -- Offense comes alive as pitching slips. Nice problem to have.
3. Detroit -- On the other hand, suddenly can't pitch to save themselves.
4. Cleveland -- Yet the Indians can't take advantage of Tigers' misfortune.
5. Seattle -- Quietly in both the West and wild-card races.
6. N.Y. Yankees -- Don't look now but they're 3 out in the wild-card race.
7. Minnesota -- Turns out they were sellers -- kind of.
8. Toronto -- Doing good to hang around .500.
9. Baltimore -- Playing much better under Dave Trembley.
10. Oakland -- No second-half surge this year.
11. Texas -- The next few years should be interesting.
12. Kansas City -- Dayton Moore has this team pointed in the right direction.
13. Chicago -- Is Ozzie on his way out?
14. Tampa Bay -- Dan Wheeler as a bullpen savior? Hahahahaha.
