The Oakland A's remain on top of the TSN.ca MLB Power Rankings, the third consecutive week that the A's have held top spot and the third straight week that they have been one ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Oakland has been getting such remarkable pitching, in part from guys off the major league scrap heap, that they have been hard to catch at the top of the list.
The Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and San Francisco Giants round out the Top Five.
Making the Gillette Move of the Week, the Kansas City Royals jumped from 19 to 10 on the heels of an eight-game winning streak. Further down the list, the Philadelphia Phillies climbed four spots, from 29 to 25.
Heading the other way, pitching problems are catching up to the Miami Marlins, who fall from 12 to 19, while the Chicago White Sox drop from 16 to 20 and the slumping New York Mets sink from 21 to 25.
