The time has come for the 1sy May Power Rankings. There will be one each for May, June, July, August, September – and then a special playoff edition Power Rankings will be done in October.

These Reports are done with a heavy thought to how the teams project by the end of the season – along with how the clubs have fared so far.

Stephen Drew hit a game tying homer and a walk off double, going 4-5, as the Red Sox beat the Twins in extra innings, 6-5.

Andrelton Simmons homered twice and went 3-4 with 4 RBI in the Braves 7-4 defeat of the Cincinnati Reds.
Scott Feldman threw 7 shutout innings against the Texas as the Cubs beat the favored Rangers. The final score was 9-2.
