Things have settled down a bit at the top this week as Tampa Bay is beginning to run away in the overall standings, firmly establishing themselves as the best team in the majors.  The Tigers have just barely slipped out of the Top 5 while the Cubs are stuck solidly in the middle with the other mediocre clubs.  Meanwhile, the Sox have wormed their way out of the dubious Bottom 5 so we shouldn’t hear quite as much whining out of Verniere this week, but stay tuned…
