    Today at 07:29:43 PM
  • 9inches: barber?
    Today at 07:29:46 PM

  • 9inches: Would you bat a Catcher with great contact ability 2nd in the order?
    Today at 08:12:58 PM
  • h4cheng: No I would always bat my best player 2nd
    Today at 08:13:28 PM
  • Mr.TradeKing: I disagree, Miggy is batting 3rd for me. If my best player happens to fit in the 2 hole then great.
    Today at 08:17:38 PM
  • Mr.TradeKing: A C like Russell Martin was in LA, could bat 2nd
    Today at 08:18:23 PM
  • h4cheng: 2nd is optimal, 3rd is not as good but better than say 4th
    Today at 08:19:04 PM
  • h4cheng: They did a study where they looked at the batting order as a Markov chain and they found the optimal lineup would have the best hitter hitting 2nd and no lower than 3rd I think
    Today at 08:20:24 PM
  • h4cheng: I think there was a study done last year that compared lineups today and lineup 30 years ago and found teams are starting to embrace this approach too

    Today at 09:18:30 PM
  • h4cheng: Not many Latin pitchers are starters

Power Rankings are opinion based only and have absolutely 0 affect on payouts or standings. These opinions are mine alone. You are more than welcome to post your thoughts to my opinions, you may also post your own rankings. This is just a fun little thing we do in a lot of leagues. I post rankings every other week or so, and I will post my opinions on teams Sunday evening or Monday morning.  :koolaid:

1. :NYY: 21-0 - Yanks look awfully tough to beat. Wieters, Arod, Tex, Cano, Granderson, Jeter, Upton. Grienke, Marcum, Garza, Sabathia and Burnett.. :o
2. :CIN: 17-0-4 - The Reds are the only other team without a lose. Ryan Braun comes calling to team up with Votto. NL Central might be the Reds for away after getting Braun.
3. :TEX: 17-4 - Ive never seen a dynasty league where the Rangers arent a lock to win. SD is no different. Not only do they come loaded, this ownership added Johan and his great start and Josh Willingham.. .289 11HR 41RBI.. Rangers say thank you for playing in the NL West... I win.
4. :BOS: 18-3 - Like usual the AL East is a Red Sox vs Yankees slug fest. Boston has a sick pitching staff with the additions of Gallardo Volquez and Billingsley. Right now they just wish they had a healthy OF
5. :STL: 14-7 - The cardinals are a force. As long as guys like Craig and Carpenter hold done the fort for Berko to return. Beltran Freese Furcal and Yady arent to shabby either.
6. :CHW: 14-7 - All you need to know is 3 names. Dunn, Konerko and Giancarlo. Since we started scoring the 3 of them have combined for 41HRS 94RBI's. oops, did I forget to mention Viciedo's 10HR's as well...
7. :NYM: 14-7 - My pick for the most improved roster is also on pace to win the NL East. They have offense, Young, Wright, Cespedes and Santana. Dickey, JJ and Wandy are very solid arms.. even before Dickey goes crazy on us.
8. :LAA: 10-4-7 - 7 ties really? GM JMAC, must be going nuts with all these kissing sister ties. Even with that, no worries in LA, playoffs are expected and should be well within there grasp. Have never seen a better GM than what currently resides in LA
9. :SF: 14-7 - The Giants currently sitting atop the AL West. Colorado and Los Angeles, have to be frustrated early on with this.
10. :LAD: 13-8 - If you asked GM Papps before the year if he would take 13-8 with no Matt Kemp, I bet he would say oh heck yes. All signs look good for the Dodgers.
11. :DET: 12-6-3 - The Tigers are a mystery team, just like Real Life. They should be so much better than this. But then you realize Avila hurt and 5 guys hitting below .260 and noone in double figures in HR. Nowhere to go but up in my book
12. :COL: 11-10 - If they could ever get a pitcher who might get someone out, that would go a long way. Getting Tulo back as well would be huge. Only time will tell.
13. :KC: 10-8-3 - White Sox and Tigers currently ahead of the Royals. Its time for them to kick it in gear before the Tigers get hot.
14. :HOU: 12-9 - Surprising Astros at 12-9 and in WC contention. Not to many leagues do you find the Astros in contention. Must be the Altuve kid.
15. :MIL: Massive trade, trading there 2 best players within the division. Only time will tell if it works out.
16. :WAS: 7-7 - Schedule issue with Fantrax leaves them in record limbo, but Harp, Stras, Gio, Zimmer a hot LaRoche... can they keep it up.
17. :SEA: 8-10-3 - The Mariners are one of the teams that we will learn a lot about in the next 3 or 4 weeks. Are they going to be buyers or sellers?  We'll find out
18. :TB: 4-17 - Injuries to Longo and Jennings are killing the Rays. This team is much better than there record. They got to turn it around fast...
19. :PIT: 10-11 - The Pirates need a big week or 2 to plant themselves in the NL Central picture
20. :BAL: 10-11 - Looking for a manager, but what a surprise these guys are. The next few weeks will tell a lot for the Orioles
21. :SD: 7-9-4 - Very good surprise are the Padres. There winning games this year while acquiring young players for the future. No bad moves from this GM
22. :MIA-MLB: 7-10-4 - Jose is gona break out soon, and the Marlins will be flying high. Only a matter of time.
23. :PHI: 7-10-4 - Much like the real life Phillies, they are a major victim of the injury bug
24. :MIN: 6-15 - Solid specs and cleared all there big contract A+ on the GM scale.
25. :ARZ: 7-10-4 - There better than the teams ranked ahead of them, but they shouldnt be 7-10-4... What is wrong in the desert.
26. :OAK: 4-13-4 - Oakland saying "Thank Gosh, no division play for awhile." The A's were 0-10-4 against the AL West to start the season.
27. :TOR: 3-18 - Not as bad the record as much like the Indians and Cubs this team is built for the years ahead.
28. :ATL: 3-18 - What is happening in Atlanta, so much talent so little production..
29. :CLE: 0-21 - Current convo between ownership and coach. Owner "It cant get any worse, win or your out"  Coach- "At least were not the Cubs" Owner " Your right, your job is safe"
30. :CHC: 0-21 - So this is what the cellar looks like.
