Season 24 Power Rankings #2

We're half way through the regular season in Cobbfather's Season 24, so it's time to check in with another edition of the power rankings.  At the top, Atlanta remains dominant and a clear number one, and they also managed to upgrade their pitching staff even further with a deal with Dover.  At number 2, the hottest team in the league, Salt Lake City checks in.  Ranked #15 preseason, they are showing they are better than we thought.  Houston remains #3, and Boston and a resurgent Pawtucket round out the top 5.  A lot of good teams this season, so it will be interesting to see how it all plays out the rest of the way.  Here are the complete rankings!
