MLB Power Rankings – May 2015

a   bryce harper 2

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer): 

Follow The MLB Reports On Twitter 

The number one team in the game right now is the Washington Nationals. They have won 18 of 22 games, and have the best hitter and pitcher in the National League right now, with Bryce Harper (11 HRs n May so far, that includes being kicked out of 2 games early, and a couple of off days.)

Really, the Nats haven’t had much from Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister, and throw in an injured Jayson Werth, and it should mean the team is struggling.

The underrated Denard Span, and Yunel Escobar of all guys, are really playing superb at the top of the lineup.  Ryan Zimmerman always has a ton of runners on, and is on pace for 120 RBI with just a mid .200 Average.

Washington also should beat up on the National League East for the remainder of the year.  With the exception of the Mets, the Phillies, Marlins and Braves should all provide the proverbial speedbag position, for this club to beat up on.

Milwaukee Brewers: Rebuild Or Reload?

Milwaukee Brewers: Rebuild or Reload?

Jordan (Part-Owner/Organizational Expert): 

Follow The MLB Reports On Twitter 

The Brewers are off to an awful start this year due to a number of factors but primarily horrendous starting pitching. Their farm system is somewhere from below average to bad and their payroll is over $100Mthis season for a small market team.

So the questions I will ask and answer are why are they so bad? Why have they failed to develop starting pitching? How can they try to fix it.? and How long is it going to take?

First lets look at their roster which when it first meets the eye doesn’t look like a team 10 games under .500 but more like an average team. Yes I under stand that Jonathan Lucroy is injured which is a big factor as he’s a middle of the order bat, handles the pitching staff and is a team leader. Read the rest of this entry
