Season 20 Final Regular Season Power Rankings

The Season 20 regular season is in the books and the playoffs are right around the corner, but first, let's take a look at the final power rankings.  Dover took the over top spot for the third time in a row, but the best records down the stretch were pitching heavy Los Angeles and Pittsburgh, so the playoffs will be interesting for sure.  These two teams came in at #8 and #6 respectively due to low offensive totals, but have to be considered strong contenders for the World Series title.  And you can't forget Vancouver, who is going for a three-peat, who played well down the stretch as well.  Good luck to the playoff teams, it will be fun to see who grabs the title with so many strong contenders!  Here are the complete final rankings.
