Baseball's top 5 teams

May 20, 2013

They're grouped with the Reds and Cardinals, their NL Central rivals, atop the National League standings. There's not much question if the Cards are one of baseball's top five teams, as they sit just a half-game behind the Rangers, who have the best record in the majors. But have the Pirates and Reds proven to be top-tier teams as well?
