Here is a look at how teams around baseball stack up heading towards July.
#1. St. Louis Cardinals (45-26) – The Cardinals are among the best current franchises in sports. Consistently competitive along with multiple championships. They are at it again in 2013 holding the best record in baseball to this point.

What may make it even more sweet with a series victory this time around is that this is easily the best team they have played in the NBA Finals and Lebron James is now, unlike in the 2007 finals, in the peak of his career. He has a lot more help around him this time and while he has always been a great athlete, he very well could be the best athlete in the world at this point.
