Top 10 best MLB teams at this moment…


Power rankings are a coveted ranking system by ESPN and MLB, they both create rankings that fluctuate every week with teams that have earned a spot in the top ten and have found a way to drop out of the top 10. Here is my version of a power ranking, the top ten teams in the MLB right now.

10. Seattle Mariners

The Mariners took care of business during the weekend in Houston, however, they just lost the rubber game to the Twins last night 6-3, so they dropped a few spots. If the Mariners continue to play the way they have played the first few weeks of May and the end of April, then they will very well be a playoff team in September. 

9. Minnesota Twins

Just as mentioned the Twins are on the biggest hot streak in the league right now, and they’ve won 14 of their last 16 and just continue to roll, they have moved up 7 spots in the ESPN ranking as of the moment. The pitching continues to roll and Ryan Jeffers counties to be the best-hitting catcher in the MLB at this point. The issue for the Twins will be the matchups in the AL Central as they have to play the Tigers, Royals, and Guardians, all of which will be tough matchups. 

8. Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers faced the Cubs this weekend. They threw the first punch in their series, but the Cubs had the last laugh. The Brewers have one of the best pitching staffs in the MLB with Freddy Peralta and Brandon Woudruff. If they can continue their success in the NL Central right now, they will be a playoff team in the fall.

7. Cleveland Guardians

It was only a 3-3 week for the Guardians, but they did well to take the series from the Angels over the weekend after an ugly loss Friday night. Losing Steven Kwan to the 10-day IL hurts, and it’s clearly up to José Ramirez and Josh Naylor to carry the offense in his absence. They continue to stay at the top of the AL Central.

6. Chicago Cubs

The Cubs achieved their highest spot of the season in the MLB power rankings by outdueling their bitter division foes from Milwaukee. Christopher Morel and Dansby Swanson stayed hot at the plate, while Shōta Imanaga has cemented his spot as THE ace for the Cubs. If they continue to stay hot the Cubs are looking very scary.

5. New York Yankees

While the fifth spot is the lowest ranking for the Yankees on this list since the preseason, they did well to stop any negative momentum by sweeping the Tigers in the Bronx this weekend. Aaron Judge followed up his first career ejection with a monster opposite-field home run in the first inning Sunday, while Nestor Cortes turned in one of his best outings of the season. The Yankees are cemented in second place in the AL East, behind the O’s.

4. Atlanta Braves

Atlanta dropped to second place for the first time all season with their third straight loss in L.A. on Sunday in the battle of the two NLCS favorites, the Braves didn’t have the firepower to keep up. They’ll regroup and get ready to take on the Red Sox and Mets this week. The Braves haven’t lost the talent that they have they just need to regroup and win a few of their upcoming series against weak opponents. 

3. Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies came away with the sweep this weekend at citizen bank, they continue to roll. Bryce Harper is crushing clutch home runs, and the pitching staff keeps quietly dominating. The Phils have won 16 of their last 19 and it’s going to be a challenge for anyone to stop that momentum.

2. Baltimore Orioles

The Orioles went 6-1 against the Yankees and Reds, taking over sole possession of the American League’s best record. Grayson Rodriguez’s injury is a brutal loss for the starting rotation, but it makes the pain much easier that Kyle Bradish and John Means both came back in the same week. Corbin Burns continues to dominate on the mound taking sole possession of the best pitcher in the MLB. With seven more home runs than any other team in the league, the O’s are proving they’re the best in the AL.

1. Los Angeles Dodgers

It had to feel good for the Dodgers to lay a beatdown on the Braves after Atlanta came into LA last September and took three out of four. Shohei Ohtani continues to prove he’s a baseball cyborg, hitting a trio of home runs in the series to tie for the MLB lead with 10. Meanwhile, Mookie Betts still leads in just about every other offensive category–and I mean every–while Tyler Glasnow continues to role on the hill. The Dodgers are scary right now expectations are high and they’re meeting every one of them.
