Week 2 MLB Power Rankings

I interrupt my drinking binge in Las Vegas to present my favorite thing in the universe, meaningless rankings. That’s commitment. Gotta keep the Gardens Army in Taiwan happy. Team Taiwan. All day. Every day.

Let’s get it:

  1. Chicago Cubs (9-3) [Last Week: 1] – This is undisputed. They are the best team.
  2. Washington Nationals (9-2) [6] – Just as I predicted, the Nats are hot and playing loose for the first time in at least five seasons.
  3. Kansas City Royals (8-4) [2] – The World Champions are the clear favorite to win the American League for the third-straight season.
  4. Baltimore Orioles (8-3) [3] – It’s doubtful the Orioles can keep up their hot start, but two weeks in they are as solid as their orange and black color scheme.
  5. Detroit Tigers (7-4) [7] – Detroit has the most runs in the American League although Miguel Cabrera has struggled.
  6. Los Angeles Dodgers (8-5) [12] – The Dodgers should compete for the NL West throughout the entire season.
  7. Chicago White Sox (8-4) [11] – Ending the week with back-to-back losses keeps the Sox from cracking the top five.
  8. San Francisco Giants (7-6) [4] – The Giants had a weak week due to dismal starting pitching.
  9. St. Louis Cardinals (7-5) [13] – Strong second week for the Cardinals and their hardo fans.
  10. Colorado Rockies (7-5) [19] – Rockies soar into the top ten in what will likely be their only appearance of the season.
  11. Pittsburgh Pirates (7-6) [8]
  12. Texas Rangers (7-6) [20]
  13. Toronto Blue Jays (7-7) [15]
  14. Boston Red Sox (6-6) [9]
  15. Cincinnati Reds (6-6) [5]
  16. Cleveland Indians (5-5) [17]
  17. New York Mets (5-6) [16]
  18. New York Yankees (5-6) [10]
  19. Oakland Athletics (6-7) [14]
  20. Houston Astros (5-8) [21]
  21. Philadelphia Phillies (6-7) [28]
  22. Los Angles Angels (5-7) [23]
  23. Seattle Mariners (5-7) [22]

  30. Atlanta Braves (3-9) [29]
