Week 6 MLB Power Rankings

1. Arizona Diamondbacks - playing the best baseball in the bigs
2. Boston Red Sox -Kevin Youkilis 2nd in the AL with 8 home runs
3. Chicago Cubs -Leads the major leagues in runs scored, scoring close to 6 runs a game
4. Florida Marlins - tied for the best record in the NL and Uggla-Ramirez have been red hot
5. Tampa Bay Rays -Scott Kazmir-James Shields might be the best 1-2 combo in AL Rotations
6. St. Louis Cardinals - Cardinals continue to surprise and impress while Ryan Franklin goes from sucky starter to dominant closer
7. Los Angeles Angels - Figgins could be out for awhile that will hurt them, however if Vlad and GMJ can heat up watch out!
8. Oakland Athletics - Did you know the A's have the best team ERA in baseball? 3.25.
9. Philadelphia Philles -Look for a jump up once Howard comes out of his slump
10. Houston Astros - Lance Berkman is paving his way for MVP: .386 12HR 35RBI 6SB
11. New York Mets - This team can move up by sweeping the Nationals but have been a big disappoitnment thus far this year
12. Atlanta Braves - Struggling to win on the road...
13. Los Angeles Dodgers -Furcal is a monster, he's batting .366
14. Chicago White Sox - Injuries are bound to plague this veteran-loaded team
15. Minnesota Twins -The Twins are playing well but I still don't think they're that good. Last in HR and near the bottom in RBI. I foresee a meltdown and a fall down the AL Central ranks
16. New York Yankees - Waiting for A-Rod and Posada to recover
17. Baltimore Orioles - George Sherrill is a beast with 13 saves relatively quietly
18. Cleveland Indians -Grady Sizemore watch: .282 6HR 20RBI 7SB while this whole team has been disappointing
19. Texas Rangers - Atleast they have Josh Hamilton
20. Milwaukee Brewers - You're breaking my Hart! Ok, that was bad. But seriously...
21. Pittsburgh Pirates - 5 game winning streak, digs this team out of the cellar
22. Toronto Blue Jays - Shaun Marcum is domination
23. Detroit Tigers -2nd in runs scored, but 30th in ERA
24. Kansas City Royals - Rookie of the Year Prediciton: Alex Gordon
25. Colorado Rockies - Aaron Cook is silently turning into an ace, coors field isn't a factor
26. Cincinnatti Reds - Where will they ship Griffey? hmmmm......
27. San Francisco Giants - I encourage you to vote for Omar Vizquel for the NL All-Stars
28. Seattle Mariners - Just not good
29. Washington Nationals - Better than the M's? I don't think so but atleast Lastings Milledge is ballin'
30. San Diego Padres - Even with Peavey being a dominant starter they are real bad. They can't score runs at all.

Living in San Diego, it's been painful to watch the demise of the Padres. They are staring up at the Giants, and that's just sad.

As long as the Red Sox don't finish the year at No. 1. A repeat would be sickening. D-Backs may be No. 1 now but I have my doubts.
