Season 32 Preseason Power Rankings

The offseason is complete, spring training is in full swing, so it's time to check in with the Preseason Power Rankings!  At #1, it's rankings favorite Texas once again, who by far and away has the best pitching staff on paper.  At #2, it's Atlanta, who had an off year in Season 31, but their offense ranks #1 in our formula, and they have some fantastic starting pitching too.  Defending champ Montgomery checks in at #3, looking to lead the way again in the NL this season.  AL powerhouses Salem and Cheyenne round out the top 5.

It looks to be another competitive season here in Cobbfather, last season 3 different teams held the #1 ranking for the first time since Season 20.  So it looks like other teams are catching up to the usual suspects, who look strong nonetheless.  Good luck to everyone this season, here are the complete rankings!
