Well the calendar turns to July and it's time for another WVBR version of the '''MLB Power Rankings'''. There are plenty of changes from our [[link|url=http://wvbr.com/sportsblog/413]] previous edition[[end-link]], starting right from the top, as the [[link|url=http://soxanddawgs.com/2009/06/18/boston-red-sox-news-notes-618/]] Boston Red Sox [[end-link]] have taken the top spot from the [[link|url=http://www.truebluela.com/]] Los Angeles Dodgers [[end-link]], who fall to number two. Meanwhile, the [[link|url=http://www.raysindex.com/]]Tampa Bay Rays[[end-link]] jumped from tenth to fourth, and the struggling [[link|url=http://allthingsphillysports.blogspot.com/2009/06/why-cant-phillies-win-at-home.html]]Philadelphia Phillies[[end-link]] have dropped from fourth to ninth. 1. Boston Red Sox There is no such thing as too much pitching 2. Los Angeles Dodgers Ho-Hum stretch as we wait for Manny's return 3. New York Yankees All that $$$ really starting to pay off 4. Tampa Bay Rays See, it will be a three-race for the AL East, Rays will only continue to improve 5. Los Angeles Angels AL West should be locked up in the coming weeks 6. Detroit Tigers Magglio Ordonez is the AL's David Wright, but the first-place Tigers offense is still good though 7. Milwaukee Brewers Too bad they can't trade for Sabathia again this year 8. San Francisco Giants Lincecum\Cain = shades of Koufax\Drysdale.. Look out for this team 9. Philadelphia Phillies Philly will regret not putting this division away now come September 10. Colorado Rockies Can the Rox keep up this surprising hot streak? Looking at their upcoming schedule, I say yes 11. Texas Rangers Another early-season tease by Texas 12. Saint Louis Cardinals Albert Pujols has a decent shot at winning the triple crown, and the added protection from DeRosa won't hurt 13. Minnesota Twins Haven't been to break away from that .500 mark 14. Chicago White Sox Just as hot as anyone in baseball right now and poised to make a run at the division title 15. Toronto Blue Jays If only they played in any other division 16. New York Mets Putting a AA lineup out there every night with no imminent relief in sight 17. Chicago Cubs Time to shake this team up? 18. Florida Marlins Just a small hot streak gets them right there in the putrid NL East 19. Cincinnati Reds Will the Reds ever be a legitimate contender? 20. Seattle Mariners The quietest above .500 team in baseball, Ichiro looking for 250 hits again? 21. Houston Astros Another team just hanging around in a very pedestrian NL 22. Atlanta Braves Tommy Hanson looks like the real deal 23. Pittsburgh Pirates Zach Duke is returning to 2005 form 24. Baltimore Orioles Big comeback against the Red Sox will be the highlight of the season 25. Oakland A's Not your older brother's Oakland A's 26. San Diego Padres How many Padres will be moved between now and the trade deadline? 27. Kansas City Royals Only the Indians are keeping KC out of their rightful spot in the basement 28. Arizona Diamondbacks Dan Haren is having a spectacular year out in the desert but nobody will care 29. Cleveland Indians Can Shaq save the Indians too? 30. Washington Nationals Adam Dunn would look great in a New York Mets uniform ''Disagree? Have any opinions? Post your comments below.''
