The Kansas City Royals can't seem to get back into a groove without also stumbling for a few games. Those are the frustrations that accompany growing pains with a young roster that lacks a stable starting rotation, but at the very least, they're only 8.5 back when all is said and done.

The Cleveland Indians currently lead the division at 26-19. Check out the division standings below, where perhaps only the Minnesota Twins will soon be waving the white flag of surrender.
