Power Rankings: Athletics see biggest jump

It's too little, too late for the A's, but last week's sweep of the Astros seems to have caught the eye of our panel. Daniel Mengden is among the bright spots of late.

Drew Pomeranz allowed one run in six innings and improved to 16-5.

Sorry, Moneyball

Comparing the longest win streaks in American League history, the Indians have been decidedly more dominant.

Red Sox 11, A's 1: Imagine the potential of Boston's offense if Mookie Betts gets hot. We're beginning to see it. Betts homered twice, drove in six runs and became the first player in Red Sox history to post back-to-back 20-homer/20-steal seasons. Hanley Ramirez was the only member of the starting lineup without a hit, as the Red Sox stretched their lead in the AL East to four games over the New York Yankees.
