Week in Review - May 6 through May 12
1. Toronto Blue Jays, 25-7. Everything continues to be clicking for the blue birds. They're now ahead of the Tigers and don't look to be slowing down. Good players like Rance Mulliniks and Dave Collins are playing above their talent level and Lloyd Moseby and George Bell keep raking.
2. Houston Astros, 24-8. The Astros are still in orbit, high above the rest of the NL West. Platoons are working out, the starting pitching is solid, and the bullpen is near unhittable.
3. St. Louis Cardinals, 24-10. The red birds continue to hold the NL East on lock-down.
4. Detroit Tigers, 22-9. It's hard to believe with a record 13 games over .500 the Tigers are in second place, but them's the breaks. Kirk Gibson in particular is leading the way.
5. New York Yankees, 20-11. Here's my nominee for "most likely to drop off." Their starters are a bunch of 2-5's and 2-6's. Mattingly is finally hitting well, though, and Dave Winfield continues to do his things. Willie Randolph will be off the DL soon too. Maybe they'll still be in the top five after all!
