The Texas Rangers just finished off a sweep of the Boston Red Sox behind 14 strikeouts by Yu Darvish and now share the best record in baseball with the Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals.

PODCAST
Jon Daniels joins Fitzsimmons & Durrett to discuss the Rangers' sweep of the Red Sox, if Yu Darvish has been even better than expected and what moves we could see the club make before the trade deadline.

Listen Listen
So, naturally, the Rangers, who were No. 1 last week in ESPN's Power Rankings, will continue to hold down the top spot, right?

Wrong.

After holding down the No. 3 spot in the Power Rankings in each of the past two weeks, the Red Sox moved up to take over the top spot for Week 6, while the Rangers dropped to No. 2.

The Rangers lost their first series of the year, to the Chicago White Sox, but followed that up by taking three straight from the Red Sox. Boston had won seven of its last eight before visiting the Rangers.

But certainly the rankings can be debated. Give us your thoughts and tell us who should be No. 1.
