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.
