Season 5 Power Rankings - Regular Season #9

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

Due to a writer's strike, the Game 135 Power Rankings were not published. Good news, we're back! And we've got 30 games of ground to cover, so let's get to it!

So what's gone on in Cobbfather the past 30 games? At the top, it's all about Tampa Bay, who takes over the top spot in the rankings, sporting the league's only 100+ win total. They dethrone Rochester, who has played sub .500 ball over the last 30 games, but that might be due to the fact that they have a 34 game lead in their division, and don't have much to play for. Still, Rochester comes in at #2, followed by Jackson holding steady at #3. Sacramento jumps 2 spots up to #4, and Vancouver rounds out the top 5.

Other big climbers in the rankings include Memphis, who has the best record in the league over the past 30 games, the New York Primetimers, and Detroit and Oakland both had nice jumps after posting above .500 records over the last 30.

The last 30 games haven't been as kind for Dover, Austin, and as previously mentioned, Rochester.

Here are your five best and five worst over the last 30 games!

Five Best: #8 Memphis (24-6), #1 Tampa Bay (21-9), #9 New York (NL) (21-9), #4 Sacramento (20-10), #7 Burlington (18-12)

Five Worst: #32 Los Angeles (9-21), #31 Kansas City (10-20), #28 Durham (10-20), #30 Ottawa (11-19), #29 Syracuse (11-19)
