Your inaugural Power Rankings

Apr 4, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

Joe Girardi AP

The only thing sillier than predictions about who wins each division several months before the season ends is judging which team is the best before any games are played.  But hey, that’s never stopped me before, so let’s have a Power Ranking, shall we?

And yeah, there is that big of a gap between the AL and the NL. It’s just astounding how much better the top teams in the junior circuit are.

1. Yankees: A 97-win team with rotation problems adds a couple of really good starters. Yeah, I think that plays.

2. Rangers: The two-time defending AL champs lose their top starting pitcher but add another one who, in my view anyway, will be better.  That plays too.

3. Angels: Huge additions in Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson, obviously, but they also had ten games to make up from the Rangers.

4. Tigers: Fielder and Cabrera are gonna be awesome to see. But there are holes in the lineup and, while still awesome, Justin Verlander can’t match 2011’s numbers again because, really, no one can do that. Right?

5. Rays: The deepest rotation in baseball means that if they have any problems — say Luke Scott is a bust and the bullpen falters — they have the chips to make some deals.

6. Red Sox: Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin’ to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their lips, just a bunch of gibberish, and motherf***ers act like they forgot about how good this team was until September last year.

7. Phillies: Infielders on this team have a worse life expectancy than the drummer for Spinal Tap. But having Halladay, Hamels and Lee hanging around makes up for a lot of stuff. The 1990s-early 2000s Braves won division after division with dudes like Mark Lemke and Keith Lockhart in the infield. I think  the Phillies will be fine.

8. Diamondbacks: Will Ian Kennedy have a repeat year? Exceedingly doubtful. But Trevor Cahill has joined up, I’m curious about an entire year of Paul Goldschmidt, Justin Upton is still awesome and I don’t think the Giants will be substantially better than they were last year. Ergo, the Dbacks.

9. Braves: If Freddie Freeman‘s spring training is any indication of how he’ll do this year the perpetual offensive problems this team has will be somewhat mitigated.

10. Giants: Whether you think this team will return to 2010 form has a lot to do with whether you think Melky Cabrera‘s 2011 season was indicative of some new normal for him and that he’ll repeat it in AT&T Park. I kinda think it was a fluke.

11. Cardinals: I’m feeling kinda shaky about this given the Carpenter and Furcal injuries, but man, I JUST picked them to win the Central an hour ago, so I have to stick with this a bit longer, no? UPDATE: I have no idea why I thought Rafael Furcal was hurt. I haven’t slept a lot lately.

12. Brewers: Prince Fielder gone, but Aramis Ramirez in (and Casey McGehee out) is pretty decent compensation.

13. Blue Jays: The rotation is kind of a mess and the lineup is depending on a handful of bounceback years. But I could see this team competing and even winning the NL West or Central. Unfortunately, they play in the AL East.

14. Marlins: A bigger deal than all of their offseason additions is the return of a healthy Josh Johnson.  But more than this team’s prospects, I’m curious to see if Carlos Zambrano and Ozzie Guillen can avoid their particular brand of performance art this season.

15. Reds:  I’d feel better if not for the bullpen injuries, but the Reds are going to be pesky and, if things break right — or wrong for St. Louis and Milwaukee — they could take the division.

16. Nationals: Still a year away, methinks, but they’re not that far behind Atlanta and Florida. Injuries to those two teams could push Washington toward second place.

17. Indians: They’re gonna do what they always do: surprise for a nice long stretch, disappoint for a nice long stretch and finish fairly far back of the Tigers. Then next winter we’ll all talk about how they’re underrated again.

18. Rockies: Jamie Moyer is a great story, but it is telling that a 49 year-old soft-tosser made this rotation.

19. Royals: So many people’s sexy, breakout pick. Still a year — and a couple of starters – away in my view. Especially in light of the Soria and Perez injuries.

20. Pirates:  A.J. Burnett, Erik Bedard and James McDonald could — if they all hit the top end of their potential — make this team a potentially dangerous one. Still, the most realistic goal here is breaking the streak of sub-.500 finishes, not going to the playoffs.

21. Dodgers: Kershaw and Kemp, then a whole lot of nothing, all mitigated by optimism about the new owners.

22. Twins: If Mauer and Morneau are both really back this will look like a really low ranking in hindsight. But they gotta show me first.

23. Athletics: It’s probably going to be more fun to watch the farm system this year — which is stocked — than the big club.

24. Padres: Same here, really. They got a lot of talent back in the Mat Latos deal.

25. Cubs: The future is pretty darn far from now. How long will Theo and Jed’s honeymoon last?

26. White Sox: On the early stages of a rebuild. There will not be any sneaky contention here.

27. Mets: The legal cloud over the team has lifted. Johan Santana appears to be healthy again. Beyond that, I’m kind of at a loss as to where to find optimism here.

28. Mariners: They’ll score more runs this year. But that’s not saying much. They should still have one of the worst offenses in baseball, even with some dramatic offensive improvement.

29. Orioles: Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: how they do will depend on young pitching taking a step forward.

30.  Astros: I think they’re gonna settle in this position for the long haul.

  1. uyf1950 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:03 AM

    Just a guess but I’d move the Angels to the #2 slot, Tigers #3 and the Rangers #4. The other change is I’d move the Nationals up to #12 and slide the rest of them down 1 spot.

    But what do I know. I’ts all a guess anyway at this stage.

    • lewp - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:08 AM

      That’s crazy Uyf. Why would you move the defending AL Champions to #4? Makes no sense. I think the #2 ranking is about right this time of year.

      • uyf1950 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:14 AM

        I moved them because I do not think they are as strong last year and both the Angels and Tigers got stronger.

        I do not think the Darvish signing makes up for losing Wilson.

      • bdickey33 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:25 AM

        Yep, I agree Feliz moved to the rotation and Darvish more than make up for CJ.

      • uyf1950 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:30 AM

        bdickey33 – You may be right at some point. But let me know when one of those 2 you mentioned actually starts a big league game. Until then I’m saying the juries out on how they will do or at the very least how they will perform on a consistent basis.

      • ditto65 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:55 AM

        I’d say wait until Darvish has faced the same lineup a few times before we anoint him the savior.

      • unp1nick - Apr 4, 2012 at 8:23 PM

        uyf1950, how are they not as strong? they signed darvish, who is looking pretty alright coming out of spring training (I understand that doesnt mean much). the only two questionables are neftali in the starting rotation and nathan as a closer (if he can get back to his original place). answer, Ogando. Aside from pujols, what has your line up done? can morales come back from his injury? if not, good luck with your new guys trying to step up.

    • polegojim - Apr 9, 2012 at 6:25 PM

      Isn’t it AWESOME to see the Rockies starting off RIGHT where they left off???

      NOWHERE! I struggle watching the saps who show up and plunk down good money for an organization committed to mediocrity.

      At least ODowd was honest when he said “Rockies baseball is more about entertainment than it is about winning.”

      Mr. O’Dowd, never has a truer word been spoken.

  2. drmonkeyarmy - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:05 AM

    As was previously discussed in a previous post, it is increasingly likely that Selig is going to call off the playoffs and declare the Phillies the greatest All-Time team in the history of the universe. Given that information, how is it that you have six teams ahead of them in the power rankings? Does that not defy logic?

    • CJ - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:15 AM

      I sense an Anti-East Coast bias this year. The universe would explode if the Yankees were anyother other than #1 at this time of year, but other than that, the next three straight and 1/2 of the top 10 are not on the East Coast.

  3. cur68 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:06 AM

    When you throw down with the Marshall Mathers, you must know you’re going to carry the argument. Sox will be pretty good this season, I agree. However, you are underestimating that Blue Jays rotation. Which is fine. I hope everyone keeps doing that.

    • odj810 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:21 AM

      I agree blue jays have some serious potential. I think they could beat out the rays.

      • cur68 - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:08 AM

        I’ll be grateful if they’re even in the conversation by August, but yeah, they could take out the Rays and, with a few lucky breaks, the Yankees, too. Sox might be harder to knock off: they’re younger, in better shape (IMO) AND they’re looking to bounce back from that September, injury riddled, collapse. Gonna be a dog fight in the AL Beast.

      • churchoftheperpetuallyoutraged - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:59 AM

        the Yankees, too. Sox might be harder to knock off

        Am I nuts, or can someone explain this to me like I’m a 5 year old. Sox had the best offense in baseball last year, Yanks tied for 2nd (with Rangers). Yanks had a far better rotation and bullpen than the Sox. The Yanks rotation got better, the Sox worse.

        So why are people picking the Sox based on “strengths” of the team?

      • odj810 - Apr 4, 2012 at 4:09 PM

        I don’t really hear anyone picking the red sox and i’m a red sox fan. I think theres holes on every team in the league this year except maybe the angels. The AL east has 4 good teams. The yanks no doubt are the preseason favorite but I wouldn’t be shocked to see the red sox or rays win the division with the blue jays 2nd or 3rd and get in with a wild card

      • rangersteve - Apr 4, 2012 at 1:19 PM

        Sox will be pretty good this season.

        You mean these Sox?

        Josh Becket going to see a hand specialists for his thumb on his throwing hand.
        Andrew Bailey going to see a hand specialists for his thumb on his throwing hand.
        John Lackey recovering from Tommy John surgery
        Daisuke Matsuzaka recovering from Tommy John surgery
        Carl Crawford recovering from wrist surgery
        Chris Carpenter (not that one, the sucky one) will need elbow surgery due to bone spurs
        Bobby Jenks recovering from back surgery (that almost killed him)
        Clay Bucholz coming off back surgery.
        Kevin Youkills not looking so healthy
        Bobby Valentine coaching.

      • odj810 - Apr 4, 2012 at 4:19 PM

        All these reason of why the red sox are suspect but they had things go horribly wrong last year and still won 91 games. no lackey, yes please If crawford can come back and stay even a litlte bit healthy thats only a bonus.
        A healthier bucholz (IMO the red sox best starter, you’ll see)
        Dice K to give them depth in the middle of the year
        bobby V to distract the media from the players
        and Youk potentially staying healthy and producing 300 30 100 once again.

        The red sox have flaws and the yankees are defanetly the favorites but there a pretty good team with a stacked lineup and a potentially good pitching staff. who knows bard can be the next CJ wilson. PS Lester is overrated. He’s not an Ace.

  4. sdelmonte - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:12 AM

    Spots for Mets optimism: Duda, Davis, Tejeda, Dickey, Gee, Niese, fences Wright can homer over, Murphy’s bat, prospects who might have a chance to play late in the season.

    I don’t see them contending, but I think they are in the middle of the pack with other mediocre clubs, same as last season (on days when Reyes was hurt).

    • CJ - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:53 AM

      be that as it may, they still play in a division with the Phils, Nats, Marlins, and Braves. In the new format, 2 of those teams would’ve made the playoffs last year, and the other 2 are two of the most improved teams in the NL. It’ll be a while before the Mets climb out of the basement of that division, might as well accept it now and save the heartache.

      • sdelmonte - Apr 4, 2012 at 12:06 PM

        A team can be in last and still be respectable. Which isn’t to say it’s a sure thing. But I am content to judge the Mets by the Mets for now.

        Besides, two writers for the Post, that bastion of intelligent reporting, pick the Braves to finish last. So maybe there is room to hope? (In my most deluded moments, I can see the Nats faltering and finishing behind the Mets. Or can see Johnson and Reyes being hurt and Hanley being a disappointment and Ozzie being Ozzie in the worst way possible, and can maybe pretend the Marlins could be a bad team. But the Braves? I’m not THAT crazy to see them falter that much. Though fourth place is as likely as first with them.)

  5. bucky370 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:13 AM

    I’d move the yankees down about 10 slots, their getting pretty old!!!

    • imbetterthanyou - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:33 AM

      So old…

      Jeter – 37
      ARod -36

      Then the rest of the starting lineup is 31 and under…that’s real old.
      Mariano is 42, but pitches like he is 30. Do not pass go…

    • yankeesfanlen - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:34 AM

      You’re no spring chicken yourself.

      • proudlycanadian - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:33 AM

        Hi Len. I was shocked last night when in my AL only fantasy league, Jeter was still available in the 14th round. I had intended to pick Escobar, but for some reason went with the old fart. He was the only player that I selected who was over 30. I am sure that you remember in the 1960’s a common mantra was “Don’t trust anyone over 30.”

      • yankeesfanlen - Apr 4, 2012 at 3:51 PM

        AL Fantasy League sounds like my type of game. I’m too hard on Beep-beep only because he hits into more double plays than he initiates at SS. Regardless, he’s on my non-fantasy team and somehow I get sentimental when his 3000th hit is a home run, just seems so Yankee-like that I get…a…little…..talk amongst yourselves.

    • ditto65 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:58 AM

      I’d move them up to “1 to the 10th power”. Or as I like to call it, “Super One”.

  6. yankeesfanlen - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:14 AM

    It’s baseball time, let’s begin it
    Hundred sixty two games and we’re in it
    If there is any doubt
    About who will win out
    The Universe definitely will win it.

    Limericks are popping up like hyacinths around here, much to everyone’s chagrin.

      Can’t beat a good limerick!

      I’ve got one;

      There once was a woman from Nantucket, ..eh, maybe not.

      On second thought this might not be the best forum.

      • yankeesfanlen - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:59 AM

        Can’t help it, BigHarold, so many things rhyme with ARod and Beep-beep.

  7. blabidibla - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:25 AM

    I don’t think the Giants returning to ’10 form depends on Melky as much as Posey and Belt.

  8. watchfullhose - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:25 AM

    Reds are too low here

  9. dowhatifeellike - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:27 AM

    The Orioles could surprise some people… and by that I mean they could end up ranked as high as 25th.

  10. illcomm - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:34 AM

    The power rankings here pretty much say the entire AL, first six teams are better than any NL team. Guess this means they r winning the series too.

  11. ezthinking - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:42 AM

    The White Sox are being short-changed every where. Second in the Central, no playoffs but will be in the hunt in September. They will certainly surprise. The rotation and a few regressions to the mean (almost every player was below career averages) will result in 85-87 wins.

  12. danielcp0303 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:48 AM

    Looks like my Astros will be getting the 1st pick for a couple of years to come. I miss Berkman, Pence and Bourn

    • natstowngreg - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:10 AM

      An opportunity to add top-end young talent quickly, if the new regime is up to the challenge.

      Though it’s not just about management, it’s also about the quality of talent available at the top of each draft. The Nats picked an excellent time to be awful, getting two of the top-rated prospects of their generation in Strasburg and Harper. Will the Astros be so lucky? Stay tuned.

    • stex52 - Apr 4, 2012 at 12:45 PM

      Right now I know they are talking about Appel at Stanford, but the Astros are still playing it close to the vest. Three comments:

      1. Rather than just #1, I hope they get at least two pieces out of the fact that they are picking at #1, #41 and #61. This isn’t supposed to be a super-deep draft, but 3 in the top 61 gives you some good shots.

      2. I would be happy if they go for a fairly conventional, safe choice. Wade’s idea seemed to be to draft the “diamond in the rough” super-athletes, and right now none of those have paid off. They have high hopes for Springer, but we will see.

      3. I hope for no more than two years.

  13. Spiro Agnew - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:55 AM

    Plenty of room for optimism with the Mets. I think they’ll outperform most expectations.

    • jimbo1949 - Apr 4, 2012 at 4:35 PM

      too many nattering nabobs of negativity.

      • yankeesfanlen - Apr 4, 2012 at 5:41 PM

        A spirit of national masochism prevails, encouraged by an effite corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals.

  14. simon94022 - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:55 AM

    The Angels and Yankees are the best two teams in baseball, but the Rangers, Tigers, Rays and Red Sox are all overrated. I think all 4 will have surprisingly disappointing seasons (though Detroit may still win their division by default).

    For the third year in a row, the World Championship will be won by an NL team that is very good but not in anyone’s preseason top 5 “power rankings”.

  15. govtminion - Apr 4, 2012 at 10:56 AM

    Interesting… not that I’m a diehard fan of them or anything, but I think that low rating for the Nationals is going to look archaic in a few months. That team looks pretty scary this year.

    • natstowngreg - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:33 AM

      Agreed, though IMHO, #16 is about right for now. Also agree w/Craig that 2013 is the more likely breakout year. Still, one can hope the timetable for contending is shorter…

  16. dwnbc - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:06 AM

    Let’s go Yankees!

  17. mianfr - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:18 AM

    I don’t get the whole “if things break right for the Reds” attitude. Everything broke wrong for them last year. They should have been an 87 win team and they just added a top flight pitcher in Mat Latos.

    The 90 win Brewers, who should have been an 84 win team (all of this is via Pythagorean Expectation, using bref’s stats because I don’t have time to open up Excel to get the same answer anyway at the moment), are probably looking at a net -1.5 to -2.0 WAR drop from the Fielder to Ramirez swap across the diamond (plus an added new first baseman).

    The Reds mostly need to fight the good fight and they’ll end up well off. Ideally Bronson Arroyo gets hurt and they slot Aroldis Chapman into the rotation, finding bullpen help elsewhere, and they can very easily be a 90-win team.

    Which, in the NL Central, probably normalizes to 96 for all of baseball (which gives me a quick research idea).

      • mianfr - Apr 5, 2012 at 2:26 PM

        First of all, I’m a Yankee fan. I really don’t care about the Reds any more or less than another non-rival NL team.

        Secondly, Arroyo compiled -1.3 WAR last year. If he wasn’t an innings eater but, say, Erik Bedard, the team would have won an extra game last season.

        There’s value in innings, but not if they’re terrible.

  20. mets79 - Apr 4, 2012 at 11:49 AM

    The most optimistic thing you can say about the Mets is that they probably will exceed expectations only because expectations are at an all time low. With that said I could see them winning about 70 games if the division is as improved as most are predicting. I don’t think the Braves are as good as they are ranked here though which helps the Mets. If the Nationals take the leap that will really hurt the Mets record assuming the Marlins are as good as everyone thinks they will be. They have to play 19 games vs. all of these teams (plus 6 vs. the Yankees) so that is literally half their season. If they get smoked by the Phils, Marlins, and/or Nat/Braves, it will be a very ugly year. I”m happy if Johan gets through the season and will return to 90% of his old self by next year and is it too much to ask that Duda, Wright, and Ike Davis combine for 80 HR’s so they are at least watchable?

    Pshaw! Yankees #1 with that starting staff, crumbling left side of the infield, and no threat at DH. How are they improved over 2011? An aging team a year older, not even top 5.

    Phillies at #7, they wish. Braves at #9, for what reason?

    Come June 1st look for the power rankings to read: 1) Rays 2) Cardinals 3) Rangers 4) Angels 5) Brewers 6) Tigers 7) Marlins 8) Yankees 9) Nationals 10) Jays 11) Red Sox 12) Phillies 13) Giants 14) D-Backs 15) Rockies 16) Padres 17) Pirates 18)Braves 19) Royals 20) Indians 21) Reds 22) Mariners 23) Cubs 24) Twins 25) Orioles 26) White Sox 27) A’s 28) Dodgers 29) Mets 30) Astros.

        I love my team, but until I’ve seen them play a few games I’d put them around 5-6.
        Also, I’d pick Yankees to win it all, because Kentucky won the tournament this year. If you wonder why I said that, head on over to the Bleachreport…kind of eerie.

      craig shouldnt be a writer ur right, but hes right about the holes in the tigers lineup n that verlander wont have his magical numbers season this year… he took a mediocre team on his back last year …i applaud him if he can do it again but adding prince awas really good for the tigers all im sayin is they got a alot of mediocre talent in the lineup n rotation

    i know the phillies got big questions about howard’s health n utley’s but we got the big 3 who make up for so much offensive problems. doc is hungrier than ever , lee is lookin to bounce back from Game 4 against the cards and shut his critics up and hamels is pitching ofr more money. then the lineup isnt horrible as everyone says…. people dont realize we had the #1 offense the 2nd half of the season last year in the national league…. subtract utley n howard but we got pene for a full year , pierre is gona produce..polanco looks healthy…j-roll , victorino chooch…. id take that lineup over anyone’s in the national league .

    Every baseball writer has “Furcal injuries” as a macro, so don’t beat yourself up over it.
