The Washington Nationals have never been necessarily good but this season they've been even worse despite the signing of powerhouse Adam Dunn. The Nats are 12-30 through May 24, 2009. The Nats will try to regroup in interleague play against the Baltimore Orioles, who are 18-25 through May 24. Hopefully the Nats can.

The Toronto Blue Jays have soared in the AL East after many didn't expect much from the 'Jays. Despite loses this off season they have come back into shape. Hopefully, the Red Sox or Yankees won't over power them. It's a tough division, anything could happen.

The Tampa Bay Rays continue to struggle after last season's surprise finish. I was one of the experts that predicted the Rays to have a fast start and that's not working out well. The only bright spot so far has been first basemen Carlos Pena who continues to be a leader in tough times. Hopefully, strong players Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton can add to the cause.

The St. Louis Cardinals have the best record in the MLB so far, 17-7 through May 3rd. The Cardinals did lose Chris Carpenter(again) to the DL but they still have strong hitting and their pitching includes Adam Wainwright and Kyle Lohse. I don't think they have enough to win the World Series but it is a stellar improvement from last year.
