Just as the Astros ruled the No. 1 slot and seemed bengals Youth Jersey set to own it forever, and just as they were eclipsed once the Dodgers seemed impossible to top when they were inspiring consideration for whether they'd set the all-time single-season record for wins, we have a new No. 1. Riding the kind of hot streak they make movies about, the Indians didn't just win this week's voting 23 weeks into the season, they earned unanimous acclaim as MLB's best ballclub, earning every first-place vote a week after narrowly losing to the Dodgers in our poll. And the Dodgers didn't just slip gracefully into the No. 2 slot -- they tumbled to No. 4 and look like they have the potential to go lower still, even as they might cling to the MLB lead in wins thanks to their epic run immediately after the break. The Dodgers' three-rung tumble wasn't the only major shakeup within the top 10. The Diamondbacks climbed two spots to crack to the top five, and the Cubs dropped three spots -- just as they also gave up ground to the Brewers and Cardinals to reignite the NL Central race. And the Cardinals had their own part to play, breaking back into the top 10, displacing the Brewers to ascend back inside the top 10 in the single largest move within the standings this week. Other teams made jumps within the rankings. This week's biggest gainers besides the Cardinals were the surprising Padres with a three-spot jump up. And with the Phillies' recent return to competitiveness, they escaped the cellar, leaving the White Sox to fall to the lowest spot. This week's voters are Bradford Doolittle, Eric Karabell, Tim Kurkjian, David Schoenfield and Mark Simon. If someone had told you in April that Jason Kipnis put up arguably his worst year while getting hurt repeatedly, that Michael Authentic Orioles Womens Jersey Brantley would get hurt and so would Andrew Miller, that they'd have to send Danny Salazar to the bullpen at two different points of the season, and that the Indians would go on their best tear of the season after all of that had happened to catch up to the Astros for the league's best record, you'd be forgiven for a lack of imagination for how all that might be so. Now we're asking whether the Indians will do a better job of sustaining their hot streak into the postseason. -- Christina Kahrl, The Astros might be No. 2 by default, because there's nothing auspicious about their getting rewarded here while getting swept by the A's in a four-game set in which Houston hurlers allowed 41 runs. Getting Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers Jr. right in time for the postseason over the next three weeks is crucial, otherwise their presumed rotation advantage after trading for Justin Verlander may exist on paper. -- Kahrl The next out that Gio Gonzalez gets gives him 180 innings pitched and kicks in a vesting option for $12 million for 2018. It's a good deal for the Nationals, who get some certainty, knowing that Gonzalez has posted a sub 3.80 ERA and made at least 27 starts in eight straight seasons. But right now, they're just hoping the magic touch he has had this season (2.50 ERA despite a 3.88 FIP) carries over into October. -- Mark Simon, ESPN Stats & Information Hitting four homers in one game was just part of the damage J.D. Martinez wrought in his seven-tater week, setting the former Tiger up to reach free agency this winter with a new career high in homers. Martinez hit a career-best 38 in 2015 for the Tigers to demonstrate his 2014 breakthrough after being released by the Astros was no fluke, but his 21 homers in just 45 games for Arizona brought him within one with the promise of a big payday in his future. -- Kahrl Apple watches aside, it was actually a pretty good week for the Red Sox. Despite dropping three of four in New York last weekend, Boston still has a comfortable lead in the AL East, Dustin Pedroia is back in the lineup and seems to be healthy after missing a month with a knee injury, and rookie Rafael Devers has been on fire this month. -- Michael Bonzagni, ESPN Stats & Information
