It's still a long way off until the 2012 season begins, and with a number of talented players remaining in free agency, including the much-coveted Prince Fielder, assessing the relative strengths and weaknesses of each team is impossible to do with any degree of certainty.
Yet as fans of each ballclub revel in the fact that their team has a perfect record and a shot at postseason glory, it is never too early to start thinking about which teams are best poised to make a run for October glory.
While many teams at the top of the list should come as no surprise to those who watched the postseason in 2011, several teams have improved due to big moves in free agency, developing young prospects or a combination of both.
Others have let some of their best players go, either in an attempt to rebuild or because they couldn't afford the price tag.
Though the remaining free agency period will significantly change the prospects of several teams, it's never too early to power rank the rosters as they currently stand.
