MLB Power Rakings:  One Week Left 'til
(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)

1. Tampa Bay

 

Very Deep, and full of underrated players set to perform.  (Iwamura, Bartlett)

 

2. New York (AL)

 

Sabathia and Wang. Deadly.  Combine that with A-rod, Jeter, and Tex.  That’s a good team.  Should add Gruddi.

 

3. Chicago (NL)

 

They still won’t win a World Series, no matter how good they get.

 

4. Boston

 

Very, very, deep. Injuries aren’t a problem on the Sox.

 

5. Philadelphia

 

World Series champions.  Should have another okay season, though they will miss Burrell’s bat.

 

6. New York (NL)

 

The Bullpen is secure; now they just have to work a little on the outfield.

 

7. Detroit

 

If the team can work together, I see them getting into the playoffs.  They actually have a good team.

 

8. Anaheim

 

Some holes, but should have great chemistry.

 

9. Cleveland

 

Players just had an off year.  Expect a return.

 

10. St. Louis

 

.500 winning percentage very plausible for this team.

 

11. Texas

 

Very dangerous line-up, but Padilla and Millwood aren’t good enough.

 

12. Florida

 

Maybe this team can go further than last year.

 

13. Dodgers

 

When Furcal and Manny get injured, there will be problems.  However, Torre will carry them.

 

14. San Francisco

 

Rented a train wreck (Renteria) and signed a few other free agents.  Won’t bring them to October, but a good team.

 

15. Chicago (AL)

 

Wherever Quinten goes, the Sox will go.

 

16. Minnesota

 

Good young team, led by one of the greatest MLB players, Justin Morneau.

 

17. Atlanta

 

Braves must start re-building.

 

18. Milwaukee

 

They lost C.C., most likely Sheets, and don’t have a closer. Full of young talent and holes.

 

19. Baltimore

 

One of the best outfields in the league, they must put together a rotation, and some power.

 

20. Toronto

 

Lost Burnett, looking to rebuild?

 

 

21. Kansas City

 

Alex Gordon = Evan Longoria.  Hopefully Soria and Gordon can push the team.

 

22. Arizona

 

Young players must perform.

 

23. Colorado

 

No longer a Holliday in Colorado.

 

24. Seattle

 

Rebuilding year, however, they have good prospects. This year will be the last re-building year.

 

25. Cincinnati

 

I see another Big Red Machine…a little down the road.

 

26. Oakland

 

Giambi can’t carry the team, and Holliday might not make the switch to AL.

 

27. Houston

 

Bunch of old, overrated guys, except Hunter Pence. 

 

28. Pittsburgh

 

The LaRoach ‘bros will be good

 

29. Washington

 

Another bad season, but Dunn’s the All-Star, not Guzman.

 

30. San Diego

 

     Eventually, they will begin rebuilding.
