MLB Power Rankings: 6-10

25-21. Last Week: 9. Chicago Cubs . 10. player. 9. The Cubs have plenty of exciting young names in their lineup, but that hasn’t yet translated into bunches of runs scored. They’re certinalya team on the rise, however.

The Twins used a nice stretch of wins to tie the Royals atop the AL Central standings. The projection systems still have their doubts, however, so they’ll have to prove they’re for real.. 28-18. Last Week: 11. Minnesota Twins . 9. player. 2

The New York Mets have cooled down some lately, but they remain in contention for a Wild Card berth even if they can’t ultimately keep pace with the Nationals.. 27-21. Last Week: 7. New York Mets . 8. player. 3

29-20. Last Week: 18. San Francisco Giants . 7. player. 31. The Giants are as hot as any team in baseball with 11 wins in their last 13 games. The defending champs entered Thursday night just a game back of the Dodgers

player. 7. The Royals have been every bit as good as the team we say last fall, but they’re in the middle of an AL Central mele battle with the Twins and Tigers.. 28-18. Last Week: 6. Kansas City Royals . 6
