Oakland Athletics players including Jed Lowrie (8), Sonny Gray (54) and Alberto Callaspo (7) celebrate their four game sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays after a game in Oakland on July 6. The small-budget Athletics are baseball's best team at the break in a division featuring some of the highest-paid stars. The Giants are right in the chase for the NL West crown despite some recent stumbles. It's only mid-July and there is already talk of a special October and, perhaps, a Bay Bridge Series with far more significance come fall. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)
