Bill Shaikin ranks the 30 teams. Last week’s ranking in parentheses, statistics are through Friday’s games:

1. OAKLAND: Raiders owner wants to “tear that Oakland Coliseum down the minute the 2015 baseball season’s over.” (2)

2. MILWAUKEE: Back end of great ’pen came from Angels system: setup man Will Smith, closer Francisco Rodriguez. (3)

3. TORONTO: Mark Buehrle’s fastball averages only 83 mph, but his 2.32 ERA puts him in fast company. (4)

4. SAN FRANCISCO: Giants don’t win two World Series without Tim Lincecum, but he’s 25- 34, 4.79 ERA since start of 2012. (1)

5. DETROIT: Justin Verlander’s fastball velocity: 95.6 mph in 2009, 92.6 mph in ’14. Owed $140 million from 2015-2019. (8)

6. DODGERS: Last two no-hitters vs. them were combined. Last complete-game no-hitter vs. L.A.: Kent Mercker, 1994. (11)

8. ANGELS: For the fourth time in three years, Mike Scioscia removes Ernesto Frieri as closer. Maybe he’s not a closer. (6)

9. N.Y. YANKEES: Yeah, they’d welcome back A-Rod, if he could hit. Yankees 3Bs are on pace for 14 homers. (9)

10. BALTIMORE: Top prospect Kevin Gausman posts 0.95 ERA in three starts, is sent to minors because he has options. (13)
