This was the week where the elite teams put their best foot forward, and the pretenders...well, the pretenders fell further down the abyss.
Pittsburgh punched St Louis right in the mouth this week and showed the Cardinals they're not going anywhere.
I went ahead and trashed Roberto Hernandez last week, and he went ahead and nearly threw a shutout this week. I'm really loving this dogfight with Boston at the top of the AL East standings
After a hotly contested sweep of the Cardinals, the Braves pummeled the Rockies in their four game sweep, outscoring Colorado by 27 runs.

The Red Sox are back in first place in the American League East after a 15-inning marathon win against the Mariners on Wednesday night, and now they have a chance to sweep Seattle right out of town.
But if Boston is going to win three straight against the Mariners, the Sox will have to beat Felix Hernandez, who hasn’t lost a game since May 25.
Hernandez is pitching lights-out baseball...
Okay, admit it. You gave up on the Boston Red Sox at about the 7th inning when they found themselves trailing 7-1 to the Seattle Mariners, especially with King Felix Hernandez on the mound.

This game looked to be over in the fifth inning when the Mariners took a 7-1 lead against Seattle Ace Felix Hernandez, but if you know these Red Sox, you know it's never over until the game ends. King Felix went seven strong, spreading out six hits and only givng up a run. On the other side, Ryan Dempster...
(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)OK, be honest, did you go to sleep when Felix Hernandez had a 7-1 lead on the Red Sox going into the eighth inning? The 2013 Carmine Hose are proving that you can never go to sleep on them, scoring once in the eighth and six times in the ninth to beat Seattle with their 11th walk-off win, 8-7. Daniel Nava capped the rally will a single off the center...
4:54 p.m.: The Jake Peavy era will officially begin Saturday.
Peavy will start Saturday’s game against the Diamondbacks, according to manager John Farrell. That allows the Red Sox to split up their two left-handed starters, Jon Lester and Felix Doubront.
Farrell also announced a roster move involving two pitchers prior to Thursday’s game. Steven Wright has been called up while...
