When I do these power rankings, I will not look at the way the team finished in 2011. I won’t look at how the team is suppose to be in 2012. I look at honestly how I feel each team is playing. Simply through pitching, hitting, and other basic things that winning teams should be doing in order to win.

 

1

Washington Nationals (10-3)

Call me what you want, this team right now has it all. They are hitting, pitching, and coming up big in big situations.

2

Texas Rangers (10-2)

Best lineup in baseball. Pitching not as good as Washington’s but it almost doesn’t matter, their starters are 8-0.

3

Los Angeles Dodgers (9-3)

Andre Either and Matt Kemp are becoming the best 1-2 punch in the league. Oh, Clayton Kershaw is good too.

4

Detroit Tigers (9-3)

3 MVP candidates should keep them in the top 5 all year.

5

St. Louis Cardinals (9-3)

Haven’t skipped a step without Albert Pujols.

6

New York Yankees (6-6)

The Captain is carrying this team as of now.

7

Atlanta Braves (7-5)

Hitting and pitching very well. Everyone is doing their part.

8

Arizona Diamondbacks (7-5)

Let’s see how they can deal with Chris Young to DL.

9

Tampa Bay Rays (6-6)

Struggled against Boston but have been a great all around.

10

Philadelphia Phillies (5-7)

Crack the top 10. Pitching is just too too good.

11

New York Mets (7-5)

Pulling in the fence at Citi Park has helped David Wright tremendously.

12

Miami Marlins (6-6)

When Josh Johnson comes into form…watch out NL East.

13

Chicago White Sox (6-5)

Paul Konerko refuses to grow old.

14

Baltimore Orioles (7-5)

Lineup is playing great but weakness in rotation will show soon.

15

Toronto Blue Jays (6-5)

John Farrell starting his manager of the year campaign early.

16

Milwaukee Brewers (6-6)

They miss Prince but Braun and company are figuring it out day by day.

17

Cincinnati Reds (4-8)

This team is too good to stay this low. They will be up soon.

18

Boston Red Sox (4-8)

Speaking of which. They will be fine but need to figure out how to beat the best teams.

19

San Francisco Giants (6-6)

This team needs to help their rotation. And The Freak needs to help the team.

20

Colorado Rockies (6-6)

Tulo will be an MVP candidate forever it seems like.

21

Seattle Mariners (6-6)

Can’t keep it up this long…can they?

22

Los Angeles Angels (4-8)

Worst team in town…what?!

23

Oakland Athletics (5-7)

Cespedes is good. Very good pickup. Can’t wait for Manny.

24

Minnesota Twins (4-8)

Offense is starting to come around. Mourneau is certainly back.

25

Cleveland Indians (5-4)

Enjoy this above .500 record while it lasts.

26

Pittsburgh Pirates (5-7)

At least they are no longer the worst team in this division, or second worse…

27

Houston Astros (4-8)

Their roster could play on some good AAA affiliate teams…

28

Kansas City Royals (3-9)

When are these incredible prospects going to become incredible.

29

San Diego Padres (3-10)

They are 29 only so I could put this team at 30…

30

Chicago Cubs (3-9)

Cubs fans are already again saying maybe next year.
