Holy Spicoli, this team's actually back in first place! Well, tied for first with those insufferable Rangers. A mere week away from the All-Star break this team has an actual chance to take the lead in the division and charge headfirst into the second half with a foot up on the Rangers in the standings. There's a pretty good chance this ends up turning into a two team race seeing as how Oakland is carving a comfortable little niche in the cellar of the division while Seattle is likely to flame out long before the season ends.
