The Giants have gone 9 – 23 in their last 32 Games – and are in danger of having a brutal campaign just one year after capturing the World Series. Key injuries and overlogged pitchers have been the main point of contention. They lost 8 Ranking Spots this past time.  Should they also become sellers at the Trade Deadline,  Tim Lincecum and Hunter Pence could fetch a few players in return.  The Giants are currently 40 – 50 and 6.5 Games behind the NL West Leading DBACKS – but are in last in the NL West.

 

By Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Analyst/Website Owner):

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

I will not do a weekly Power Rankings during these weeks, because in essence, these are the weekly rankings done on a much larger scale.

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.

I will point out who has had great months for the all 30 MLB Teams.  I reward the good performances in these rankings – and leave the poor ones for the Podcasts or future articles. CLICK THE READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY ICON or scroll past the video and picture.

The Rays have gone 21 - 14 in their last 35 games and are making their move up the AL charts at 52 - 40.  They are the 2nd Wild Card Team - and are only 3.5 Games behind the Boston Red Sox.  With David Price and Matt Moore, who is going to stop them?  They are also deeper with Wil Myers and Chris Archer in the fold the rest of the year.  In my view, the only chance New York and Baltimore will have - is to make a big trade at the Deadline.  The Yankees need a hitter and the Orioles need a bonafide Starting Pitcher.

They are the 2nd Wild Card Team – and are only 3.5 Games behind the Boston Red Sox for the AL East. With Aces David Price and Matt Moore, who is going to stop them? They are also deeper with Wil Myers and Chris Archer in the fold the rest of the year. In my view, the only chance New York and Baltimore will have – is to make a big trade at the Deadline. The Yankees need a hitter and the Orioles need a bonafide Starting Pitcher!

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
