Already more than a month has passed since the start of this campaign. Charles-Alexis and your humble servant have therefore concocted a second state of force for you in 2021. Once again, this is a happy mix between the strength of the various teams and their start to the season. Let’s go!
1 – A’s (2)
After a lazy start to the season, the A’s take pride of place at the top. And it is fully deserved.
2 – Cardinals (16)
It was only a matter of time. The machine is working.
3 – Giants (5)
The Giants seem unbeatable in their castle that is Oracle Park.
4 – Red Sox (3)
For the moment, it holds. Will remain to be seen for how long.
5 – Padres (4)
It’s not perfect, but the Padres now have the same record as the Dodgers in second in the section.
6 – Dodgers (1)
Speaking of the Dodgers, they have the worst streak in the National League right now.
7 – White Sox (13)
What will be the impact of Luis Robert’s injury paired with that of Eloy Jimenez?
8 – Brewers (6)
More difficult this week, but just behind the Cards.
9 – Royals (10)
Young Royals are not slowing down.
10 – Yankees (14)
The old diesel is quietly moving.
11 – Rays (11)
The Rays give a lot of points. This is not a good recipe in Tampa.
12 – Indians (19)
The relief and Shane Bieber keep the Indians out of the water.
13 – Mariners (8)
The traditional descent of the Mariners after April has begun.
14 – Blue Jays (17)
The health of the starting rotation continues to be a problem. However, the young sticks hold the fort.
15 – Astros (22)
Ups, downs, ups, downs. We do not know on which foot to dance.
16 – Diamondbacks (29)
An unexpected return to the race.
17 – Nationals (20)
We expect better, but we seem to be heading in the right direction.
18 – Phillies (25)
Too much nonchalance, both among the players and the coaching staff.
19 – Cubs (21)
It smells like spring cleaning by the transaction deadline.
20 – Braves (15)
Ronald Acuna Jr. is alone in the world until now.
21 – Food (12)
Still no offensive support, and not just for Jacob deGrom.
22 – Reds (7)
Back to normal in Cincinnati.
23 – Orioles (26)
Not an easy team to face at the start of the season.
24 – Rangers (27)
The team’s performance is significantly above expectations.
25 – Angels (9)
We came close to believing it …
26 – Twins (18)
Still no return to the race. The concern begins to be felt.
27 – Marlins (23)
It will be necessary to score more regularly to hope to win its share of matches.
28 – Pirates (24)
Quietly, but certainly towards the shallows, despite a great battle at the start of the campaign.
29 – Rockies (30)
A lot of work for the new interim CEO.
30 – Tigers (28)
We expected it, it’s very difficult to stay the course for these young players.
See you in two weeks!
