Like us on Facebook here

Sunday Aug.11/2013

Texas has fought off a July slump - and are 9 - 1 in their last 10 games.  They have added reinforcements in the way of Alex Rios and Matt Garza.  If they can just hold the course - and win the AL West, they have the horses and experience to challenge every other team.  The club was the biggest mover upwards in our rankings this week - going from #10 - #4

Texas has fought off a July slump – and are 9 – 1 in their last 10 games. They have added reinforcements in the way of Alex Rios and Matt Garza. If they can just hold the course – and win the AL West, they have the horses and experience to challenge every other team in October. The club was the biggest mover upwards in our rankings this week – going from #10 – #4.  It was not too long ago that the Rangers were sitting at just a half – dozen games above .500 – and behind the playoff bar.

Audio Monthly Rankings – Aug

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

It is time for the MLB Power Rankings.  These are based on my thoughts on whether who has the best chance to win the World Series.

A lot of these positions are based on who has the toughest Strength of Schedule left, who their competition is for the Division, and possibly even the League they are in,

The races for the Divisions in the NL are becoming less competitive every week.  The NL East and NL West look to be done.  The Pirates are within weeks of ending a 20 year playoff drought.

The Braves rattled off a 14 game winning streak – and should cruise to the NL East crown.

The Athletics are in big trouble with some of their talented offensive players not putting up numbers like they did in 2012.  They now find themselves in 2nd place in the AL West.

Anibal Sanchez pitched 7 solid innings, letting up only 2 runs and striking out 8 while walking one, getting the win for the Tigers over the Yankees, 9-3.

Jacoby Ellsbury doubled home a run in the 4th and in the 6th, going 4-5 and leading the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory in Kansas City.

Wilmer Flores went 2-4 with RBI singles in the 4th and the 8th, providing almost all the Mets offense over the Diamondbacks, 4-1.

Nathan Eovaldi helped the Marlins stop the Braves winning streak at 14 games. He may not have got the decision, but his 7 shutout innings, letting up one hit and striking out 8, setting up Miami’s 1-0 win. 

They all owned baseball on August 10, 2013.
