Perhaps you have heard – the MLB season is at it’s one quarter point. Indeed, things within the standings are starting to take shape. A quick start has less to do with simple ‘luck’ and more to do with a team playing good baseball once you have reached this point.
Furthermore – with the Los Angeles Dodgers currently at 27-16 on the season – you can take solace in the fact that they are officially pretty good. While not perfect, they have as many wins as any team in baseball at the time of this post.
It’s fun to put stock in different ‘Power Rankings’, so let’s look at a couple here. First up, MLB Network released their top-10 on their official twitter account. The Dodgers are sitting pretty.

Right now, this list looks pretty sound to me. Definitely, it’s interesting to see the division-rival Arizona Diamondbacks sneaking into the fray at number 10. Without question, one can see who the possible challengers would be should the Dodgers reach a third straight World Series.
One can make the assessment that the American League is much more wide open than the National League, where the Dodgers seem to have a consensus stronghold on the top spot. Another Power Rankings system at ESPN has them also ranked number one.
Obviously, at the quarter point; there are prevailing reasons that the Dodgers have had success. However the more interesting question really becomes: how do the Dodgers stay at this point for the next several months?
In the comments section – do you agree with the Dodgers being the top-ranked team in the sport to this point? And what potential icebergs do you see coming the team’s way that need shored up for them to win a World Series? Let us know below!
