Season 5 Power Rankings - Regular Season #6

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

It's time for another edition of the Power Rankings! 10-5, 9-6, 11-4, and 11-4. Those were the records of 4 teams ranked consecutively in the last edition of the power rankings during this rankings period. What were the rankings of those four teams? 1-4? 3-6? OK, let's stretch a bit, 10-13? Wrong! Believe it or not, those are the records of the teams ranked 29-32 in the last power rankings for this period. Congrats to #29 Syracuse (10-5), #30 Kansas City (9-6), #31 Wichita (11-4) and #32 Ottawa (11-4) on fantastic records for this rankings period. Needless to say, they all moved up in the rankings.

So, what's going on at the top? There's a new #1! Even though they only were able to match the records of the #31 and #32 teams this period, an 11-4 record was enough to propel Rochester to #1. Tampa Bay fell one spot to #2, Jackson is #3, Sacramento #4, and Vancouver #5.

Other teams who did well this rankings period include a trio of teams from the AL East - #6 Atlanta (10-5), #8 Boston (11-4) and #11 Burlington (11-4). #7 Dover also went 11-4.

It was a rough period for #10 Austin (5-10), and #14 Memphis (4-11), but not as rough as it was for Los Angeles, who went 1-14, and that 1 win was the first game, so they are currently on a 14 game losing streak.

Here's this edition's teams on the rise and teams on the decline section.

Teams on the rise: Syracuse, Wichita, Kansas City, Ottawa, Rochester, Dover and the entire AL East

Teams on the decline: Los Angeles, Austin, Memphis, New York (NL)

And now the unveiling of the latest edition of the Regular Season Power Rankings!!
