Season 6 Power Rankings - Regular Season #4

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

Welcome to this week's edition of the power rankings. Another week, same old story at the top of the rankings, as Rochester cruised this week to a league best 14-5 record, retaining the top spot in the rankings. There's not another team in the league close to consideration for the top spot, at this point. Memphis stayed at #2, Vancouver held their #3 ranking, and Boston and Florida round out the top 5, each moving up a spot in the rankings.

Outside of the top 5, some teams highly thought of in the preseason started to put it together. #7 Tampa Bay had a great week, posting the league's second best mark in the last week, and #17 Sacramento and #18 New York (NL) each gained 7 spots in the rankings after plummeting the week prior.

#19 Cheyenne had a nice week as well (12-7), and #28 Boise bounced back with a 10-9 mark under new ownership.

On the downside, #15 Cincinnati struggled, but still held on to a share of the NL East lead, despite an under .500 record (32-33). #32 Wichita fell to the bottom spot in the rankings with the worst record in the league over the past week.

Here's the five best and five worst over the last week in Cobbfather:

Five Best:
#1 Rochester (14-5)
#7 Tampa Bay (14-6)
#6 Burlington (13-6)
#4 Boston (12-6)
#2 Memphis (13-7)

Five Worst:
#32 Wichita (5-15)
#15 Cincinnati (5-14)
#31 Kansas City (5-13)
#21 Syracuse (6-13)
#24 Little Rock, #26 Charleston (7-12)
