Vitamin Z's Magnificent 7: MLB Power Rankings
1. Boston Red Sox (50-33): Said it before, say it again: I HATE this team.

2. Los Angeles Angels of Portsmouth, Ohio (48-33): The A'S are hanging in, even if practically everyone thinks the division crown will rest in Anaheim.

3. Chicago Cubs (49-32): I was going to write something about how different Ryan Dempster is at home vs. on the road. But a look at the standings shows it's a team thing. The Cubs are 23 games over at Wrigley, a combined six games under everywhere else.

4. Tampa Bay Rays (48-32): If Joe Maddon does not win AL Manager of the Year, something is seriously wrong.

5. St. Louis Cardinals (47-36): Just 2 1/2 back. How about that?

6. Chicago White Sox (45-35): Sox have outscored opponents by 81 runs, the biggest plus-differential in the American League.

7. Minnesota Twins (44-37): This is the type of organization Indians general manager Mark Shapiro wants to build; a small-market club that stays in contention most of the year, at the very least.

Couple things:

1. When did you start writing more on here? I've gotta visit more.

2. I like this feature

3. I trust Tampa Bay will be moving up?
