Season 26 Power Rankings #2

We're half way through Season 26 already, so it's time for another edition of the power rankings!  Atlanta holds on to the top spot with the best record and the most dominant pitching staff in Cobbfather.  #2 Texas, the most dominant offensive team in Cobbfather has been gaining ground, and saw a noticeable improvement in pitching since the last rankings.  It will be interesting to see if they can end Atlanta's streak of 12 straight #1's.  The best record in the world since the last rankings belongs to #3 Philadelphia, going 30-11 over the period.  Arizona and Florida round out the top 5.  Here are the complete rankings, good luck in the 2nd half!
