SoB MLB Power Rankings 9-14-10

The Rays and Yankees are still locked in a heated duel, with the Rays having a 0.5-game lead and a game in had. Ditto for the Padres over the Giants. The Rockies are only 2.5 games out, and the Braves are just a game behind Philadelphia ad leading the Wildcard race by 1.5 over San […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 23

Only three weeks are left in the season, and it looks like ten teams are still legitimately in it (four in the AL and six in the NL). Everyone knows the Yankees ad Rays are still battling it out for top honors (with the Rays 0.5 games behind and a game in had). The Sans […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 22

You see the image; the Reds are now the best team in the National League. That’s despite the Cardinals’ two victories in a row and Atlanta losing to Pittsburgh. The Pirates have got to be the ugliest thing in Pittsburgh since Matt Cooke. If Philadelphia hadn’t lost their last two to stay a scant 1.0 […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-31-10

The Rays and Yankees are still tied with 31 games to go; the Red Sox are 7.0 games back. The Cardinals (and pretty much the Giants) have seemingly died. The Padres have too, but they still had a huge division lead built up to eat the blow. And assuming Manny doesn’t help the White Sox […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 21

With just over a month left to go, things are finally starting to fall into place. Baltimore has officially been eliminated, and Pittsburgh could still win their division, if they win their last 32 and Cincinnati loses their last 32. The Yankees were the first team to 80 wins, but were joined hours later by […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 20

With just six weeks to go until playoff time, the divisions are finally starting to see some separation. The Yankees are a game ahead of the Rays, but the Reds are finally 3.5 games ahead of the Cardinals. The Phillies have opened up a 2.0-game lead over the Cardinals and Giants, and the Orioles are […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-16-10

The races are starting to open up. Minnesota is 3.0 games ahead of their competition, and the Cardinals and Reds are a vast, vast 1.0 games apart. The NL Wildcard is now in a tie, while it’s still easily the Rays and Yankees in the American counterpart. San Diego did well against San Fran to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 19

Well under 50 games remain in the season, and we’re starting to get towards the final stretch. A few of the division leads are widening a little, but the Reds and Cardinals are still as close as ever. Minnesota is back in command, and the Orioles are no longer the worst team in baseball. The […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 18

Just eight weeks are left in the season, and only one division is led by more than 1.5 games: Texas is beating Oakland by 8.0. For all the talk, the BoSox neither gained nor lost ground over the Yanks, and are now in danger of falling behind the White Sox and Twins. The Cardinals/Reds saga […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-03-10

Just when you thought it was over, you get rebuked by teams that want back in. Minnesota is notably back in the race, and the Cardinals and Reds are still too close to call. Tampa and New York are tied, with the Rays getting the tiebreaker by virtue of leading the season series 6-5. Not […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 17

Just two months are left in the regular season, and the trade deadline (without waivers) has passed. Texas has a firm grasp on their division, but it looks like we may have to have a playoff game with the Cardinals and Reds. The Twins have come roaring back, the Phillies are trying to do so, […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 7-20-10

With the next SoB power rankings here, it’s been fairly easy to pick teams. The White Sox have widened their division lead, the Cardinals have taken one again, and the Giants have quietly punched their ticket to the Wild Card race. The Rays are back in form, the Braves, Padres, and Rangers are all still […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 15

Approaching the 100-game mark of the season, it seems that nothing is set in stone. The Rangers continue to be impressive out West, and the Cardinals have usurped the Reds, again. After touching the playoff picture, the Red Sox have rapidly fallen back. The Yankees are still the team to beat, despite Andy Pettitte’s imminent […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 14

The All Star break is here, and a shortened week lies ahead. Texas acquired Cliff Lee to protect their lead, but STILL got SWEPT by the Orioles. At home. Even with Lee, that will kill their credibility. The first, second, and (tied for) fourth best team in the majors are all in the same division […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 7-6-10

Welcome back for another edition of the SoB Power Rankings for Major League Baseball. This edition is jam packed with thirteen teams getting nods for the ten spots, yet only one dropping from the rankings. And eight teams have either kept their previous spot or moved just one. The Twins’ recent slide out of the […]
