1. Detroit Tigers
Entering the third week of play, the Tigers led all of baseball with the best record of 10-2. Their pitching staff led by ace David Price is packed with talent throughout their entire rotation. But, in my opinion, their pitching isn't even the most terrifying part about facing the Tigers. That would have to be their explosive lineup. With players such as Kinsler, Martinez, Cabrera, and Cespedes, there is not a part of the lineup that I would feel safe pitching to.
2. St. Louis Cardinals
Led by the best overall starting pitching ERA in baseball, the Cardinals are at the head of a competitive NL Central division entering week 3. The biggest questions that lingered about the Cardinals were their bench depth and if the starting pitching would be strong enough. Well, to this point, the starting pitching has proved itself. With a lineup of Carpenter, Heyward, Holliday, Adams, and Molina, the Cardinals are a force to be reckoned with in the NL this year.
3. Kansas City Royals
Another team in the AL Central, along with the Tigers, enter my top 3 power rankings. The Royals who are a young and hungry team picked up where they left off last season. Beginning the season 9-3 on the backs of Hosmer, Gordan, and Perez. The biggest battle for the Royals this year will be to beat out the Tigers for first place in the division. It will surely be an exciting ride in the AL Central this season.
