Major League Baseball releases it’s power rankings for the week, and the Dodgers once again find themselves at the top. There wasn’t a whole lot of movement in the top 5, but the Dodgers are now the only National League team there. The Cubs were dropped to number 6 while the Rays slid up to the 5th spot.

The Dodgers tore through the Mets and Phillies this week, taking 6 of 7 games. The club is on pace to win 111 games, and show no signs of slowing down any time soon. Big contributions from around the lineup make their offense one of the most potent in all of baseball, with the bullpen being their only real weak spot.

Los Angeles is a ridiculous 9 games up on the Colorado Rockies, who are having a great month of their own. The Dodgers have won 5 straight, and have not lost a series since May 1st when the Giants took 2 of 3.

  1. I do not give a darn who leads in the power ratings. The only thing that does matter is where we finish when the last game of the season is played. To not win a championship would be devastating considering how we well we are playing. This is why the FO needs to add someone of quality to the BP. Go Blue!!!!
