It's been more than a month since I released the first edition of my MLB Power Rankings—and a good deal has transpired since then.
As of this writing, only 10 Type "A" or "B" free agents remained, with the lone "A" player being Roy Oswalt.
With so many key free agents already snatched up and happily placed with new teams (or re-signed by their "old" teams), it leaves slim pickings in terms of impact free agents still on the market.
Granted, the acquisition of an Edwin Jackson or a Roy Oswalt could shake some things up, but their impact would be realized most by the middle-of-the-pack teams—the teams that still wouldn't really be in the potential playoff picture.
Thus, it seems high time to step back, analyze, and readjust my power rankings.
Here's a list of my new rankings, with each team's prior rankings in parentheses, and an explanation as to why they ascended, descended or remained static.
As always, I gladly welcome all comments, screeds and/or diatribes.
