After 5 weeks of the season here are my power rankings as of today.
The biggest fall of the week comes courtesy of the Detroit Tigers (-13 spots) after going 4-6 in their last 10 games, and losing 6 straight. The Dodgers and Indians both moved up 8 spots after the Dodgers took over 1st place in the NL West and the Indians went from 4th to 2nd in the AL Central. Chicago Cubs remained steady at the top having won 9 of their last 10 and another Chicago team joined them at the top this week, the White Sox who became the 2nd team to win 20 games this season. The bottom of the league remained the same with the Minnesota Twins and the Atlanta Braves staying in the basement, going a combined 4-16 in their last 10 games each.
Let me know if you agree or what you would change in the comments...
