MLB Power Rankings: Final Regular Season Breakdown

The 2013 MLB regular season is overat least for 28 of the league's 30 teamsas the Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays will meet up on Monday night for Game 163 in order to determine who the second wild card in the American League will be.

It's been another terrific season of baseball, and the final day of the season provided yet another memorable moment, as Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez threw a no-hitter but had to wait until his Miami Marlins teammates finally scored their first run of the game in the bottom of the ninth on a passed ball to celebrate.

In the National League, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds will battle it out in the Wild Card Round, with the winner taking on another NL Central team (St. Louis) in the NLDS. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves will meet up in the other NLDS.

Over in the American League, the Cleveland Indians await the winner of Monday's game in order to see who they will play in the AL Wild Card Round. Then, the winner of that game will take on the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. The Detroit Tigers and Oakland A's round out the AL playoff pool in the other ALDS matchup.

So with the regular season behind us (almost) and the postseason on the horizon, here is a final look at where all 30 teams stack up in my final regular-season power rankings.

For fun, I've included a look at where I had each team ranked on Opening Day along with what I had to say about them entering the 2013 season.
