The Houston Astros have been on a tear over this recent stretch of games, but they haven't gained any ground on the Rangers who continue to put up runs at a historic pace.

Houston's pitching is elite again this year, but the offense is just mediocre at this point in the season. The Rangers and Rays are getting things done with elite offense and pitching, which has them leading the best two divisions in baseball.

Editor's note: This video was recorded before Jacob deGrom's surgery was announced.

Plus, which team is the biggest threat to the Astros? The Rays or the Rangers?
