This week, there is quite a bit of movement at the top of the MLB Power Rankings. Over the last few weeks, most of the big risers and fallers were in the middle of the pack. But, thanks to some streaking among several teams, the landscape of the top 10 has changed.

The Braves and Tigers, who have been among the better teams this season anyway, are both on double-digit win streaks, and Atlanta has used that to tie the Red Sox for the most wins in baseball. A lot of the mediocre teams in the league deserve to have lower rankings than they do, but the teams behind them have played so poorly lately, too, that they couldn’t logically move up. But these rankings are all about what’s happening at the top, anyway.

The rankings this week are brought to you by The Beatles. You can find their songs throughout. It only makes sense to get an assist from one of the biggest bands of all time. After all, being from England, we can only assume they were huge baseball fans.
