In Other News...PWR Rankings 12/18

Shanan H.Analyst IDecember 18, 2008

1. New York(NL)

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

2. New York (AL)

Expect to be in the top five of the rankings when you have three of the best pitchers in the league; Chin-Ming Wang, C.C, and Burnett.

3. Chicago (NL)

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

4. Boston

Best infield (Other than at Short,) and very good rotation.  Also added Tazer.

5. Philadelphia

World Series champ, signed Rauuuuul, and resigned Moyer.

6. Tampa Bay

Trading Jackson was a bad choice.

7. Detroit

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

8. Anaheim

All they need is a first baseman.  Miguel Cairo?

9. Minnesota

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

10. Texas

Best outfield in baseball.

11. San Francisco

Rented a train wreck (Renteria,) and signed a few other free agents.

12. Dodgers

Nomar, Furcal, and Manny may all be gone.

13. Chicago (AL)

The team is lead by Quintin, no, let me rephrase that; Quintin is the team.

14. Atlanta

They may start the long road back to greatness this season.

15. St. Louis

.500 winning percentage very plausible for this team.

16. Milwaukee;

They lost C.C, most likely Sheets, and don’t have a closer.

17. Baltimore;

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

18. Toronto

Lost Burnett, looking to rebuild.


19. Cleveland

A rebuilding season could turn out better than planned.

20. Kansas City

Great third baseman, and a team full of prospects

21. Arizona

Now, they go back to rebuilding.

22. Colorado

No more Holliday, no more wins!

23. Florida

Similar year to last year.

24. Cincinnati

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

25. Oakland

If the young guys (Hanahan) can do anything, you might see a .500 season.

26. Houston

Bunch of old, overrated guys.

27. Pittsburgh

The LaRoach ‘bros will be good

28. Washington

Unless they get Tex, another bad season.

29. Seattle

Rebuilding; year 6.

30. San Diego

Eventually, they will begin rebuilding.

And Ben, the Mariners will not be good this year.
