The first full week of the 2012 MLB season is in the books, and while we are still just 10 or so games into the season, the landscape of what we can expect as far as division races is already taking shape.
The Dodgers have to be considered the surprise team so far, as they have baseball's best record at 9-1, while last year's pennant winners, the Cardinals and Rangers, are off to hot starts as well.
Now that the sample size is greater than the three games we had in the books last Monday, these power rankings have a number of teams making big jumps and a few dropping a significant distance.
Keep in mind, these are power rankings, not standings, so while record is certainly taken into account, it is far from the sole deciding factor that went into ranking all 30 teams.
So here is a look at this week's MLB power rankings, and check back here each Monday morning for an updated look at where your favorite team stands.
