Season 4 Power Rankings - Regular Season #4

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

It's time for another edition of the Power Rankings! And once again the trend continues that the #1 team suffers a fall from grace, as Burlington is out of the top spot with a mediocre stretch. Another trend is emerging and that is Florida being #1 every other edition of the rankings. Florida reclaimed the top spot with an 11-5 run since the last rankings. A trio of teams had huge weeks to vault into the top 5, reaching their highest point in the rankings this season. Those teams were #2 Memphis (12-4), #3 New York (AL) (13-3), and #4 Rochester (12-4). The biggest jump in the poll, however, was made by #20 Sioux Falls who jumped 7 spots in the rankings with an impressive 11-5 record since the last rankings. Let's see who else is on the rise, and who else is on the decline.

Teams on the rise: Florida, Memphis, New York (AL), Rochester, Fargo, Honolulu, Sioux Falls, Detroit, Durham

Teams on the decline: Chicago, Dover, St. Louis, Huntington, Charleston, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles, Kansas City

Here is the fourth edition of the Regular Season Power Rankings!!
