It writes: “It’s not just that they had the best first week, but that they did it against the Giants and Indians. They averaged 6.86 runs per game while hitting .313/.369/.504. Let’s see if the bats stay hot this week in San Francisco and L.A.”

Joel Reuter writes: “A 6-1 week that included a series win over the San Francisco Giants and a sweep of the Cleveland Indians sends the Diamondbacks vaulting higher up these rankings than any other team. Ranking the Diamondbacks at No. 19 to open the year was admittedly a conservative approach based on last year’s finish, so that explains their huge first-week jump.”

Dieter Kurtenbach writes: “Zack Greinke has started the year strong, posting a 0.94 WHIP in his first two starts. That was good — but not as good as the Diamondbacks’ offense, which hit over .300 and averaged close to seven runs per game against Giants and Indians — two of the best rotations in baseball.”
