Something is not right, anyone know how they determine "power"?

The list ranks the best ten teams and the worst 5 teams. It changes like the weather, and should be taken with a grain of salt. The only ranking I care about is the AL central, and we're FIRST in that one.

Something is not right, anyone know how they determine "power"?I think they just have 9 of their writers and editors rank the teams top to bottom. One of the goofs even gave the Mets a 1st place vote this week.

How in the world are the ScRubs even in the top ten??? Other than the Expos, show me a team in baseball that has a worse lineup. If the White Sox were 7 games out we'd be lucky to crack the top 20.

No problem. Timing is everything. I find it interesting to compare Week 13's rankings with Week 14's. With a little luck, the Sox can go on a nice 6 game losing streak after the break and climb up to No. 2 or No. 3 in the rankings. Hell, maybe that guy that gave the Mets a No. 1 vote will give it to us next time.

Week 14 was posted on july 7th, the cubs hadn't caved in yet. Power rankings are determined by a combination of overall standings and the play of the team the week before. That's why there are such large swings week to week.

As much as I hate the Cubs, they're far from down and out. Wood dazzled last night, and I wouldn't bet against them making a second half surge. And anyway, IMO there is no team in the league I'd rather meet in the WS than the Cubs. Its a pipe dream, but I'm only 21, so I have plenty of time to see it happen.

But they're still the Cubs. They have plenty of time to finish last. It's kind of a glass half empty half full scenario. For you they have plenty of time to get back into first, for me they have plenty of time to be passed up by the Brew Crew and the Reds.

Don't knock the Mets at #1:wink:

Seriously though, how do the Cubs advance when they get swept by the Brewers and lose two of three to the Cards?

I take ZERO interest in these power rankings submitted by the East coast/Red Sox biased espn...they mean nothing. If this was accurate...the Red Sox should be no higher than 6th or 7th. Gammons and espn can go play with themselves.

20 game winner Kerry Wood came back, so they get an automatic jump up in the standings. And Sammy is hitting better. After that whiff at his first pitch in the HR Derby, I expect their ranking to go up even more.

Per RMUSACCH, these are compiled every Wed. so these rankings were based on their sweep of our Sox.
