Another week of baseball's regular season is in the books.

As we cross the midway point of May, teams can start to properly evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and pundits can begin to properly analyze player statistics as small sample sizes become firmer representations of player performance.

Among the more interesting headlines this week was the call-up of Royals top prospect Eric Hosmer and the announcement that Angels first baseman Kendry Morales is done for the season.

The Detroit Tigers Justin Verlander also made his case to become the first pitcher since Johnny Vander Meer (1938) to pitch two consecutive no-hitters.

With that in mind let's take a look back at the week that was and find out which team stands atop baseball after eight weeks of play.
