The last 10 games: Tigers, Indians & Padres – LA? Oh, my!

Take a look at the records of MLB teams over the last 10 games.

At the top…

Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, and Justin Verlander‘s Tigers are the hottest team in baseball.

They are closely followed by Terry Francona‘s Tribe.

Then, surprisingly by Bud Black‘s Padres.

At the bottom…

We will find Houston in this slot all season long, but who would expect that a city with Matt Kemp, Mike Trout, Clayton Kershaw, Albert Pujols, Adrian Gonzalez, and Josh Hamilton, to name just a few of the All-Stars, would have two teams doing so poorly?

As for the rest…

Mediocrity or parity reigns supreme
