Three new teams entered into the top ten this week the Grumbling Groundhogs, Beefpound and Highlanders while the Cornerstone, Pirates and the Fisher Cats fell out of the top ten. The National League South is still the hardest division to play in so far going 183-141 against teams outside there division with the Gullah’s having the only losing record against teams outside there division (28-53). The National League West is still the weakest division to play in going 133-191 against teams outside there division with the Pioneers the only team with a winning record outside there division (43-38). The Bucks had the best week of any team so far going 16-1 while the HeadHunters of any team so far going had the worst week going 1-16.

1. Monterrey Stars (64-28) (Previous Week – 1)
The Stars went 12-5 during the week and remained in the top spot for the fifth straight week. The Stars have opened a seven game lead in the division and look to be on there way to another playoff appearance.

2. Milwaukee Bucks (61-31) (Previous Week – 8)
The Bucks went 16-1 during the week and moved up six spots this week. The Bucks have been on a great role the last week and have opened of a six game lead in there division and look they will make the playoffs as well.

3. Houston Hitmen (60-30) (Previous Week – 2)
The Hitmen went 10-7 during the week and fell one spot this week. The Hitmen have the biggest lead of any team in the league with an eight game lead over the next team in there division and will probably see the playoffs again.

4. Jackson BlaZers (57-35) (Previous Week – 5)
The BlaZers went 10-7 during the week and moved up one spot this week. The Blazers have the third best record in the National League even though there in second place in there division

6. Anaheim Beefpound (50-42) (Previous Week – 14)
The Beefpound went 11-6 during the week and moved up eight spots this week. The Beefpound find them in a situation that they have never been in, teams are extremely close to taking the division lead from them this season.

7. Chicago Blackhawks (55-37) (Previous Week – 7)
The Blackhawks went 10-7 during the week and remained in the seventh spot this week. The Blackhawks have been battling for the division lead all season and could really make the National League very interesting this season.

8. Cincinnati Highlanders (52-40) (Previous Week – 15)
The Highlanders went 12-5 during the week and moved up seven spots this week. The Highlanders find themselves in first place this late in the season for the first time since season 1. It’s going to be a tough battle down the stretch.

9. Atlanta Brave Vawts (51-41) (Previous Week – 6)
The Brave Vawts went 8-9 during the week and fell three spots this week. A sub .500 week really hurt the Vawts with losing the division lead and falling in the rankings. I guess Nunez is going to be called on even to bring the Vawts back to the top.

10. Kansas City Bobcats (54-38) (Previous Week – 3)
The Bobcats went 7-10 during the week and fell seven spots this week. The Bobcats really looked tired heading into the All-Star break so let’s hope a little rest will turn the team around for a good stretch run.
