MLB Power Rankings
In this edition of the WVBR Power Rankings the Dodgers regain the top spot, Pujols and company jump from 12 to 4, and the Mets continue to fall.
1. Los Angeles Dodgers
Not overly impressive lately, but very steady
2. New York Yankees
Can they beat the Sox?
3. Boston Red Sox
They have to feel confident now that Ortiz is starting to find his swing
4. St. Louis Cardinals
I'm starting to think Pujols can beat Bonds' MVP record
5. Tampa Bay Rays
Should make things interesting in the AL East down the stretch
6. San Francisco Giants
The NL better hope the Giants don't make the playoffs with the way Lincecum and Cain are dealing.
7. Los Angeles Angels
Still the team to beat in the AL West even though they don't always play like it
8. Texas Rangers
Have shown some fight after the Angels stole first from them
9. Philadelphia Phillies
Seem to be coasting a little bit this year
10. Colorado Rockies
How is this team good?
11. Detroit Tigers
Can the surprising Tigers rotation keep it up?
12. Milwaukee Brewers
Fielder and Braun have done their jobs
13. Florida Marlins
.348 avg with 14 hrs, and 60 rbis, Hanley Ramirez is now officially top of the class of hitting shortstops
14. Chicago White Sox
If Contreras continues to be successful the White Sox could have enough to overtake the Tigers
15. Minnesota Twins
MVP for Mauer?
16. Seattle Mariners
Griffey's Michael Jackson tribute was cool, but he should have moonwalked to first
17. Toronto Blue Jays
The great start to the season seems so long ago for the Jays
18. Chicago Cubs
All the potential, no results, sound familiar
19. Atlanta Braves
Tommy Hanson 4-0 start to his career, very nice
20. New York Mets
21. Houston Astros
.500 team. That�s just all there is to it.
22. Cincinnati Reds
Cueto showed he was snubbed from the All Star game by giving up 9 ER in 0.2 innings, good work
23. Baltimore Orioles
One homer since May 26 for Adam Jones, what happened?
24. Kansas City Royals
Grienke's fun to watch
25. Pittsburgh Pirates
At least the Laroche brothers get to enjoy being on the same team, that's always nice
26. Oakland Athletics
They have a stranglehold on the cellar of the AL West
27. Arizona Diamondbacks
Justin Upton's been fun to watch
28. San Diego Padres
It was only a matter of time til they got no hit
29. Cleveland Indians
Hey Kerry Wood stayed healthy this year, how about that.
