Season 6 Power Rankings - Regular Season #2

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

It's Chuckles back with another edition of the Power Rankings! And at the top spot, it's Rochester, who continues to dominate, putting up a league best 12-2 mark since the last rankings. Vancouver leaped over Atlanta for #2 with a solid 11-3 mark, while Atlanta takes the #3 spot. Boston holds steady at #4, and it's a long awaited return to the top 5 for Florida, who jumps 2 spots to #5, who are trying to rekindle their championship run of 2 seasons ago.

Outside the top 5, the usually dominant #11 Sacramento is off to a slow start at 14-15, and one of the powers of last season, #10 Tampa Bay, is struggling as well at 13-16. #27 Boise has had it rough lately going a league worst 3-11 since the last rankings, and if things don't turn around quickly, could be looking at the bottom spot in the rankings.

On the upside, #16 Cincinnati (+7 spots) has been playing well lately, #19 Wichita (+5 spots) has started off the season well and #23 Little Rock (+5 spots) and #24 Oakland (+5 spots) are off to a good start in proving that the preseason prediction that they'd be amongst the league's worst teams was wrong.

And now the five best and five worst since the last rankings:

Five Best:
#1 Rochester (12-2)
#2 Vancouver (11-3)
#5 Florida (11-4)
#3 Atlanta, #6 Memphis, #16 Cincinnati (10-5)

Five Worst:
#27 Boise (3-11)
#20 Detroit, #21 Dover, #26 Chicago, #28 Charleston, #29 Kansas City (5-10)

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