Season 19 Midseason Power Rankings

Leon Jackson - Senior Writer - Cobbfather Post Gazette

We're at the halfway point of Season 19, and it's time for another update to the power rankings.  There seems to be a lot of parity this season, no one team has stood out thus far.  The top 4 in this edition of the power rankings were neck and neck, and then there was a bit of a drop off.  Little Rock was the top team in the previous power rankings.  While their offense remains extremely dominant, they only went 22-19 since the quarter season rankings, which isn't enough to hold on to the top spot.  For the top spot, pitching has overtaken offense, and Pittsburgh and their dominant pitching staff is your new top team!  Here are the full rankings at the halfway point of Season 19.
