Preseason/Week 1 MLB Power Rankings

MLB Baseball Power Rankings 2010

As mentioned in a previous post, Fantasy Baseball Dugout is participating in Yardbarker’s Blogger Poll for MLB Power Rankings in 2010. In addition to ranking each MLB team 1-30, we are also tasked with providing analysis all year on the closely competitive AL West.

See below for our full preseason team rankings. All links below point to our archive pages devoted to each particular team linked. Go there to find blog posts relating to each club.

Our analysis of each AL West team is also spread throughout this blog post.

Nothing too fancy to start the season. Yanks and Phils finished 2010 at the top of the heap, and we predict they both will once again return to the World Series… so they start the year at no. 1 and no. 2, respectively.

After reading these rankings, we know you will want to pick us apart for some of them. Feel free to voice your concern over these rankings in the comments below.

  1. New York Yankees
  2. Philadelphia Phillies
  3. Boston Red Sox
  4. St. Louis Cardinals
  5. Tampa Bay Rays
  6. Los Angeles Dodgers
  7. Colorado Rockies
  8. Seattle Mariners: The bullpen roster doesn’t provide much faith. On paper, the M’s start as best in the AL West.
  9. Detroit Tigers
  10. Minnesota Twins
  11. New York Mets
  12. Los Angeles Angels: Lost a lot of ground to the rest of the AL West. Will be a good race between them and the Mariners.
  13. San Francisco Giants
  14. Atlanta Braves
  15. Florida Marlins
  16. Texas Rangers: Improved team in 2010, but health is going to be critical to success. If healthy – it’s a three team race. Injuries clearly keep this team as 3rd best, however.
  17. Cincinnati Reds
  18. Chicago Cubs
  19. Milwaukee Brewers
  20. Chicago White Sox
  21. Arizona Diamondbacks
  22. Washington Nationals
  23. Oakland Athletics: They have good pitching, and they’re gonna need it with that lineup.
  24. Pittsburgh Pirates
  25. Baltimore Orioles
  26. Kansas City Royals
  27. Toronto Blue Jays
  28. Houston Astros
  29. Cleveland Indians
  30. San Diego Padres
