After series wins over the Yankees and Red Sox this week, the Tigers find themselves back in the Asshole Power Rankings Top 5.  Their typical shaky starting pitching showed signs of turning things around with two shutouts against the Bronx Bombers and a 1-run gem today versus the Bo Sox.  The same poor showing knocked New York out of our top spot this week, making way for the Rays to reclaim the throne.  Meanwhile, the slumping White Sox find themselves back in the Bottom 5 after a bad series loss to lowly KC who fired their manager this week.  The Sox are now batting a league-worst .230.
