The Marlins have been competitive despite Giancarlo Stanton being mortal and that's largely been due to the long awaited emergence of Christian Yelich.
With an epically bad farm system preventing the possibility of trading for decent starting pitching and the current state of the staff, there's not much the Angels can do other than take some chances, cross their fingers and hope for the best.
The Mariners are in first place in the AL West despite having the third lowest BABIP in all of baseball. With even a little more luck, they're a good bet to get a little more separation and to end their playoff drought.
Even if there's a little bit of early-season mirage going on somewhere here, we've seen the upside of the Phillies young rotation now and it looks like they could be around for their next competitive team thanks to how young they are.
If the Astros can get some more luck offensively and not have all of their starters underperforming at once, they're going to be winning way more games than they are right now to dig out of the hole of their slow start.
