Week 1 MLB Power Rankings

Battle of the Bay Power Rankings 2010

Fantasy Baseball Dugout is proud to have one of the six voting spots in Yardbarker’s Blogger Poll for MLB Power Rankings 2010. In addition to providing our insight on ranking each MLB team 1-30, we also monitor the AL West each week and drop a little insight on each team.

See below for our week 1 rankings. All the links below point to our team archive pages. Our analysis of each AL West team is also spread throughout the post. A couple things have changed since last week, but the Yanks and Phils remain 1-2. I try not to let the top teams move too much when there’s such a small sampling of games.

Now some sprinkle:

  • Bay Area baseball is bubbling to start the season – the Giants are up 8 spots from the preseason rankings, the Oakland A’s are up 10.
  • The Blue Jays are up 12 spots, but there’s no doubt in my mind they will fall once they start playing in their division.
  • The Mets dropped 11 – did I overrate them to start the year?

Now the rankings:

  1. New York Yankees
  2. Philadelphia Phillies
  3. St. Louis Cardinals
  4. Tampa Bay Rays
  5. San Francisco Giants
  6. Boston Red Sox
  7. Los Angeles Dodgers
  8. Colorado Rockies
  9. Minnesota Twins
  10. Detroit Tigers
  11. Los Angeles Angels
  12. Seattle Mariners
  13. Oakland Athletics
  14. Arizona Diamondbacks
  15. Toronto Blue Jays
  16. Pittsburgh Pirates
  17. Atlanta Braves
  18. Cincinnati Reds
  19. Texas Rangers
  20. Florida Marlins
  21. Milwaukee Brewers
  22. New York Mets
  23. Chicago Cubs
  24. Chicago White Sox
  25. Kansas City Royals
  26. Cleveland Indians
  27. Washington Nationals
