Season 22 Final Power Rankings

Season 22 is in the books, so it's time for the final power rankings of the season.  The top 4 remained the same, as all were equally solid down the stretch, and won 105 or more games.  But that doesn't mean there aren't some strong contenders to challenge them.  Atlanta looked great down the stretch, and comes in at number 5 and hopes to carry that momentum to help fulfill a promised World Series title.  Los Angeles is looking good right now too, coming in at #6.  Should be an interesting postseason, here are the final rankings.  Good luck to the playoff teams!
