So, I was figuring I'd try to do a list myself, and I figured, heck, why not be bold, include all 30 clubs.
In no way am I saying this is the correct list, it's just my list.
So, here it is, the first ever JBLBB Power Rankings, teams 1-30.
25... New York Mets
24... Los Angeles Dodgers
22...Toronto Blue Jays
21...San Diego Padres
20...Kansas City Royals
18...Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
17...Chicago White Sox
The above teams are all the teams with losing records though yesterday's games.(Memorial Day).
The Marlins are setting the bar very low in their play, and really need Giancarlo Stanton and Logan Morrison to get back from injuries to get the team going.
Morrison has joined the Marlins Double A squad in Jacksonville to continue his rehab.
Before all you ChiSox and Angels fans get mad, understand that I had to pool all the teams with losing records together.
I suspect in a week, or two, both teams will be on a winning streak, and look, the ChiSox are only 5 games back in the A.L. Central.
As for the Dodgers, well, a 13-15 record at home just isn't good.
Now for the teams with winning records.
This is tough, but here they are...
14...Tampa Bay Rays
12... Baltimore Orioles
9...New York Yankees
7...San Francisco Giants
4...Boston Red Sox
1...St. Louis Cardinals
Year after year the St. Louis Cardinals find a way to win, and they have the best record in baseball, at 33-17.
The Reds are playing well and keeping the Redbirds in their sights.
I have the Yankees at #9.
No Derek Jeter, no Alex Rodriguez, and after a brief comeback, no Curtis Granderson.
The Yankees do have Mariano Rivera, who's perfect, as usual, saving games for the Pinstripers, and Joe Girardi is the A.L. Manager of the Year as of today.
I have the defending World Series Champion SF Giants at #7, which is right where they like to be, I think, while other teams make headlines early before they start to make their move.
Well, agree, or disagree, there's my poll, from the bottom dwelling Miami Marlins to the Cardinals in St. Louis.
Comments are welcome anytime, after all, I'm no expert, just a baseball fan giving my humble opinion.
Good Luck to your team...and Go Tigers!
