Season 5 Power Rankings - Regular Season #2

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

It's 30 games into Season 5, and one team has established themselves as the clear #1 team in the league. Jumping up one spot to #1 is the Jackson Rockets, who after starting 1-3, rattled off 23 wins in 24 games before having an 18 game winning streak snapped against NL West rival Sacramento, who drops from the top spot to #2. 3-5 remain the same, with Rochester, Vancouver and Florida holding those spots.

Other teams performing well this rankings period were #7 Austin, who went 10-5 and claimed the NL South Division lead. NL East rivals New York and Dover bounced back from slow starts to go 10-5 as well.

And oddly enough, after plummeting to the bottom of the rankings, the Cleveland Kings had a nice little 10-5 run this period as well. graendogg will be pleasantly surprised when he logs in to his team 6 days from now that his team has been doing fairly well; however, we don't expect it to last long.

Here's the teams that made the teams on the rise and teams on the decline list for the 2nd rankings.

Teams on the rise: Jackson, Atlanta, Austin, New York (NL), Dover, Detroit, San Juan, Buffalo, Los Angeles, Durham, Charleston, Cleveland

Teams on the decline: New York (AL), St. Louis, Burlington, Memphis, Syracuse, Oakland, Honolulu, Syracuse, Little Rock, Wichita
