What a difference a week makes.

Seven days ago, the Cleveland Indians were leading their division but were also hanging just north of the .500 mark at a far-from-impressive 36-33.

Now, after winning seven in a row, the Tribe have vaulted themselves into the conversation for the best team in the American League behind the Yankees, Red Sox and Astros.

Meanwhile, the other team in that conversation, the Seattle Mariners, have been in somewhat of a tailspin of sorts and have seen themselves drop seven out of their last 10.

Was it enough to cause MLB power rankers from ESPNCBS Sports and USA Today to put the Indians over the Mariners entering play on Monday?

To find out, check their spot in RealClearLife‘s Ultimate Power Rankings, which combine ratings from those three publications to get a single definitive rank for all 30 teams in Major League Baseball and place them into segmented tiers.
