MLB POWER RANKINGS BY: THROUGH THE FENCE BASEBALL STAFF
WEEK # – PRE 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27
RK TEAM RATING RECORD CHANGE COMMENTS
1 Red Sox 2.08 0-0 If the staff can deliver even occasional quality starts, this run-scoring juggernaut, coupled with a deeeeep bullpen, should pull out some wins.
2 Phillies 2.33 0-0 Loss of Utley knocks them down a peg.
3 Giants 3.25 0-0 The pitching is again stellar, end-to-end.  But San Fran just didn’t manage to add any useful bats. Help us, Brandon Belt, you’re our only hope.
4 Yankees 4.92 0-0 Simply because they have so many weapons.
5 Brewers 7.08 0-0 Crew has the pitching and bats to make noise.
6 Rangers 8.33 0-0 Cliff Lee, we hardly knew ya.
7 Braves 8.92 0-0 Can the “Boys of Spring” turn into the “Boys of October”?
8 Twins 9.08 0-0 Gardenhire regime keeps churning out winners.
9 White Sox 10.42 0-0 Peavy of old needs to show up on the Southside.
10 Rays 11.25 0-0 Newcomer Hellickson should more than make up for the Garza loss, and hopefully Manny and Damon provide the right kind of veteran leadership
11 A’s 11.33 0-0 Psst. Texas, do you hear us knocking?
12 Cardinals 11.67 0-0 Contract year should stoke the Machine.
13 Reds 12.55 0-0 Repeat performance will be difficult unless pitching excels.
14 Rockies 12.83 0-0 Six months of Septembers guarantees Rocktober.
15 Tigers 13.58 0-0 Bound to be a strong offense, led by Miggy Cabrera.  Verlander is solid, but there are questions about the supporting cast.
16 Angels 14.75 0-0 Disappointing off-season carries over.
17 Dodgers 15.33 0-0 Donnie Baseball is no Joe Torre … yet.
18 Blue Jays 18.92 0-0 Can Bautista repeat his HR barrage?
19 Marlins 19.25 0-0 Fish won’t flounder if the kiddie corp produces.
20 Padres 19.25 0-0 So close last season, so far this one.
21 Orioles 19.92 0-0 Showalter has O’s thinking big.
22 Cubs 21.33 0-0 Will Pena hit above the Mendoza line?
23 Mets 23.33 0-0 There are many issues here, and to perform to this position they’ll need at least one of the following to stage a comeback: Beltran, Bay, or Santana.
24 Nationals 23.75 0-0 We’re not Werth-y!
25 Astros 25.25 0-0 This is going to be a long season in Houston.  Pence and an aging Lee stand amid the rubble of a once-proud program.  Lyles may be a bright spot.
26 Mariners 26.17 0-0 On the Cust of greatness? Not.
27 Royals 26.33 0-0 New season. New optimism. Same ol’ results.
28 Indians 26.83 0-0 Grady’s back. And that’s about it.
29 Diamondbacks 27.00 0-0 Kennedy needs to pitch to his ability, and some of the other late twenties players need to hit their primes for the D-Backs to compete.
30 Pirates 28.50 0-0 If Hurdle plays, they inch up to 29.
