Season 5 Power Rankings - Regular Season #3

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

It's time for another edition of the Power Rankings! No change at the top of the rankings this week, as Jackson stays at #1 after going 10-6 this period. Sacramento and Rochester stay at #2 and #3 respectively, with solid 9-7 performances in this period. Atlanta jumps up 2 spots to #4 with a 10-6 record in the rankings period, and Tampa Bay rounds out the top 5 at #5 with a great 12-4 run.

But the hottest team in the league comes from outside the top 5, it's everybody's favorite, the Hammer'd Leprechauns! #9 San Francisco went 13-3 during this past period and are currently on an 11 game winning streak. They took over the AL West lead as well, passing a slumping #10 Vancouver. Other hot teams include #7 Dover, who went 11-4, and #13 Memphis, rebounding from an awful start with a 12-4 effort. #17 Boston went 12-3, and are currently on an 8 game winning streak.

All in all, there were 11 teams that won 10 or more games since the last rankings, which gets us to our teams on the rise and teams on the decline section.

Teams on the rise: San Francisco, Tampa Bay, Memphis, Boston, Dover, Atlanta, New York (NL), New York (AL), Burlington, Charleston

Teams on the decline: Vancouver, Florida, Detroit, St. Louis, Cheyenne, Buffalo, Durham, Oakland, Ottawa

And now the Unveiling of the third edition of the Regular Season Power Rankings!!
