MLB Power Rankings: Sunday, June 14

Just feeling a quick blog tonight after coming out of my state of shock that Trevor Hoffman is indeed human.  Here’s my current power rankings for the MLB as of tonight with a sentence on each squad.

 

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (42-22)

Unbelievably, this team has not missed a step after losing slugger Manny Ramirez and is easily the best team in baseball right now.

 

2. Boston Red Sox (38-25)

Their dominance over the Yankees has pushed them into first place in the AL East, and David Ortiz is slowly coming around.


3. New York Yankees (36-27)

Mark Teixeira and C.C. Sabathia are finally making good on the huge contracts they signed last off-season.

 

4. Philadelphia Phillies (36-25)

Raul Ibanez has been fantastic, and their 23-9 record away from home is unbelievable.

 

5. Texas Rangers (35-27)

Nelson Cruz has been fantastic this year and the Rangers are more than staying alive without Josh Hamilton…so far.

 

6. Detroit Tigers (34-29)

Edwin Jackson looks like the real deal, and the Tigers are atop the competitive AL Central.

 

7. St. Louis Cardinals (34-30)

When their rotation is pitching well, they are the best team in the NL Central.

 

8. Milwaukee Brewers (34-29)

Their current rotation is not going to do enough damage to win the division, and the bullpen is starting to come back down to earth.

 

9. San Francisco Giants (34-28)

If it weren’t for the Dodgers, we would be talking about the Giants much more.

 

10. Tampa Bay Rays (34-31)

Evan Longoria is keeping the Rays alive, but they need to start playing better in close games.
