Dodgers Dominate Latest MLB Power Rankings With 13 Wins

Did we really expect anything else?



The Dodgers have not been removed from the top of MLB’s power rankings since the preseason of 2020. Those rankings were released after the tea, had acquired Mookie Betts, and they’ve stayed at the top ever since. 

This week is no different. The Dodgers took 2 out of 3 from the Padres and swept through the Rockies over the last week. That led to them coming into week 3 ranked at the top of MLB’s power rankings once again. 

The Padres came in just behind them at number 2 despite losing a pair to the Dodgers. They also lost 2 games to the Pirates this week as well, so a little bit of a surprise to not see them slip in the rankings. The Boston Red Sox somehow shot all the way up to number 3 after a miracle start to the season.

The Dodgers and Padres series ended up being everything that it was built up to be by the media. The two NL West favorites went head-to-head all weekend, and every pitch seemed to matter down the stretch. 

But just looking at what the Dodgers lineup is doing, it’s no wonder they come in ranked number 1. With guys like Zach McKinstry stepping up to lead the team in offensive production, you can expect a very good season in Los Angeles. 

Will anyone knock the Dodgers off from the top spot in 2021? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. While they’ll come up against truly serious competition, the only real obstacle I see is: do they perform up to their potential. They certainly did last year and perhaps it’s unreasonable to expect human beings to be that consistant…BUT….hey, they’re the pros and the rest of us are just civilians.
    GO DODGERS!

    • I believe they feel they are even better than last year’s team with the addition of Bauer and a few other arms in the pen, not to mention Zach. and then there’s the proving the 60 game season/WS title was valid. and then there is the celebration they want to have with their fans when they repeat as World Series Champions. So I think that all adds up to sufficient motivation to continue where they left off.
