A couple of days late, but here are my power rankings after 8 weeks (and 2 days) of the season...
The San Francisco Giants took 2 out of 3 from the Chicago Cubs. They have won 8 of their last 10 games. With that said I still couldn't drop the Cubs to #2. I think they are still the best team in baseball. The biggest drop this week is that of the Philadelphia Phillies, going 2-8 in their last 10 games and falling 10 spots in the power rankings. They may finally be showing us what we expected from them. On the flip side of that, the Toronto Blue Jays moved up 11 spots, winning 7 out of 10, up to #12. I think we'll probably see them keep moving up as the season goes on, but for now I think 12 is a good spot for them with how they've played so far. In the race for the worst team, the Braves were able to take the bottom spot again in this weeks rankings.
Let me know what you think in the comments...
