Season 22 Power Rankings # 2

We're exactly half way through season 22, so it's time to check in with another edition of the Power Rankings.  The top team hasn't changed, with Dover earning the top spot for the 11th straight edition of the Power Rankings.  Tampa Bay has been pushing hard to take over that top spot though, tying Dover for the best record since the last rankings and putting up very similar numbers.  Boston, Pittsburgh and Houston round out the top 5.   Here are the rest of the rankings, it should be a very interesting second half of the season!
