Washington to MLB: If you don't make a decision soon, there's no guarantee relocation bid will still be on table.
15. Royals (10)
Counted them out when they faded after big start in April. Might be resilient enough to weather this storm, too.
16. Cardinals (13)
Albert Pujols, not Barry Bonds, will be the National League MVP. Bet the Gateway Arch on it.
17. Dodgers (16)
Can't write them off as long as they remain well-armed.
18. Rockies (18)
Playoff hopes have faded, but Rocks aren't showing any quit.
19. Rangers (24)
A-Rod is earning his money; Rangers finally are earning a little respect.
20. Blue Jays (19)
One more go-to starter and this would have been a very interesting team.
21. Angels (21)
Title defense has been a downer, but new owner should lift spirits.
22. Pirates (22)
Reggie Sanders barely got a sniff in the free-agent market. Now, he's smelling like a rose.
23. Orioles (20)
Still haunted by last year's 4-32 finish, but this isn't last year and this isn't last year's team.
24. Reds (23)
More Pete Rose managerial rumors should start cropping up.
25. Indians (25)
Closer is 0-7 with eight blown saves, and he's complaining about bullpen demotion.
26. Devil Rays (27)
Despite the record, the terrible stadium and the clueless upper management, this team has spunk.
27. Mets (26)
Playing their best baseball of the year, though that isn't saying a whole lot.
28. Brewers (28)
Everything you ever wanted in a struggling small-market team ... and less.
29. Padres (29)
Lucky Ray Kroc doesn't own the team anymore. The new ballpark would be shaped like a Big Mac.
30. Tigers (30)
Should register 100th defeat before the week is out. Proud franchise has hit rock bottom.
