New York Yankees: Perhaps the last hurrah for a core group that's led the Yankees to five championships since 1996.
Texas Rangers: The 2010 pennant winners let Vladimir Guerrero and Cliff Lee go in the offseason, but still became back-to-back winners of the AL West, picking up third baseman Adrian Beltre to go with a solid cast of hitters and a still-underrated pitching rotation. All five starters had 13 wins or more.
Detroit Tigers: No team was hotter for a stretch in the second half than the Tigers, who blew past the Indians and White Sox in the AL Central to win a division title for the first time since 1987, and their first-ever AL Central title. Justin Verlander won the AL pitching triple crown, leading the league in wins (24), ERA (2.40) and strikeouts (250).
Tampa Bay Rays: The Rays came back from nine games behind Boston on Sept. 4 to win the AL wild card and qualify for the postseason for the third time in four seasons.
Philadelphia Phillies: The Phillies surpassed 100 wins in the regular season for the first time since 1977 behind one of the best-assembled pitching staffs in history.
Milwaukee Brewers: The Brewers went for broke in the offseason, building a team around Prince Fielder in the final year of his contract, and it paid off nicely with the Brewers' first division title since winning the American League pennant in 1982. The acquisition of Zack Greinke gave the Brewers a formidable rotation, and getting Francisco Rodriguez from the Mets has made the bullpen a big key to the team's success.
Arizona Diamondbacks: The Diamondbacks were the surprise team in the postseason party. They finished in last place in the NL West in 2010, but pulled away in the second half under second-year manager Kirk Gibson.
St. Louis Cardinals: Albert Pujols and the Cardinals rallied past the Atlanta Braves in the final week, coming back from three games down with five to play to take the wild card.
