>CAPB FINAL SEASON 11 POWER RANKINGS

>THE ELITE TEAMS
1)New York Highlanders (110-52) (LW – 1) No movement from last week. Team went 13-8 during the week. [If you didn’t think the Highlanders were the best team in the league, you must have been living under a rock the whole time. I have seen some dominating teams but I have never seen a team dominate in every aspect of the game like the Highlanders did this season. The team went 49-24 during the second half of the season. The Highlanders are the favorite to win the World Series and also my pick to win it all.]
3rd Hitting/ 1st Pitching/ 5th Fielding – Played in the 5th toughest division

2)Minnesota Monkey Wranglers (101-61) (LW – 2) No Movement from last week. Team went 13-8 during the week. [You can’t ask for a more balance team then the Monkey Wranglers. The team scored 175 more runs then they allowed, which is outstanding and a big reason for a 100 win season. The team went 40-33 during the second half of the season. The American League Crown may not have to go through Minnesota this season but it doesn’t mean the Monkey Wranglers can’t win it.]
6th Hitting/ 5th Pitching/ 1st Fielding – Played in the toughest division

3)Buffalo Soldiers (98-64) (LW – 3) No movement from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [With the division crown lockup, the Soldiers took it easy during the last week and still got the number 1 seed for the National League. Team went 44-29 during the second half of the season. The Soldiers have to be the favorite to win the National League Crown but the team doesn’t need to take any team lightly at same time.]
17th Hitting/ 2nd Pitching/ 3rd Fielding – Played in the 2nd toughest division

4)Montgomery Burns (94-68) (LW – 4) No movement from last week. Team went 13-8 during the week. [The offense powered the Burns all season but the pitching staff step up when they had to as well. The team went 40-33 during the second half of the season. The bats cooled off a little toward the end of the season for the Burns. So the big question coming out of Montgomery is can the bats get on fire during the playoffs?]
4th Hitting/ 19th Pitching/ 32nd Fielding – Played in the weakest division

THE GREAT TEAMS
5)Toledo Holy Fargin’ Schnicks (92-70) (LW – 6) Up 1 spot from last week. Team went 15-6 during the week. [The Holy Fargin’ Schnicks just got better and better as the season went along. The team went 45-28 during the second half of the season. The National League in wide open so why not the Holy Fargin’ Schnicks?]
12th Hitting/ 3rd Pitching/ 29th Fielding – Played in the 3rd toughest division

6)Milwaukee Porn Silos (92-70) (LW – 9) Up 3 spots from last week. Team went 14-7 during the week. [Had a great week to sling shot into the 5th seed and a little easier schedule in the playoffs. Balance has been the key to the Porn Silos all season and I wouldn’t expect anything to change from the team in the playoffs. Team went 42-31 during the second half of the season. Could the Porn Silos be World Series Champions? You never know.]
14th Hitting/ 10th Pitching/ 22nd Fielding – Played in the toughest division

ABOVE AVERAGE TEAMS
7)Fargo Fart Knockers (91-71) (LW – 5) Down 2 spots from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [The Fart Knockers can’t be happy being the 6th seed in the playoffs but there probably the scariest 6th seed anyone has ever seen. The team went 41-32 during the second half of the season. Can never bet against the best offense in league from getting far in the playoffs.]
1st Hitting/ 15th Pitching/ 2nd Fielding – Played in the toughest division

8)Honolulu Witch Doctors (88-74) (LW – 8) No movement from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [The Witch Doctors used there voodoo powers to win there division by 10 games. I don’t think anyone will be taking the Witch Doctors lightly during the playoffs this year. The team went 38-35 during the second half of the season. It will be hard to bet against the Witch Doctors not to win the National League Crown once again.]
9th Hitting/ 12th Pitching/ 14th Fielding – Played in the 6th toughest division

9)Nashville Raccoons (87-75) (LW – 11) Up 2 spots from last week. Team went 15-6 during the week. [The Raccoons stepped up there game during the last week of the season and easily won there division once again. The bats came alive during that last week, now let’s hope they can stay hot in the playoffs. Team went 42-31 during the second half of the season. This will be a very scary team to face in the playoffs.]
2nd Hitting/ 25th Pitching/ 30th Fielding – Played in the 4th toughest division

10)Pittsburgh Pisces (87-75) (LW – 7) Down 3 spots from last week. Team went 11-10 during the week. [The Pisces are the best team to miss the playoffs this season. If they didn’t play in the toughest division, the Pisces would be a playoff team. Team went 38-35 during the second half of the season. Don’t worry Pittsburgh, the Pisces will be back next season.]
10th Hitting/ 4th Pitching/ 19th Fielding – Played in the toughest division

11)Vancouver Whitecaps (84-78) (LW – 14) Up 3 spots from last week. Team went 12-9 during the week. [The Whitecaps are proof that if you beat up on your division, you can still win the division no matter how bad you play against everyone else. Nothing like the feeling of beating up on your division to get into the playoffs during the final week of the season. Team went 38-35 during the second half of the season. Anything can happen in the playoffs but for the Whitecaps to make some noise it would be a small miracle.]
7th Hitting/ 16th Pitching/ 17th Fielding

12)Atlanta Hooch (86-76) (LW – 10) Down 2 spots from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [The Hooch seemed to be limping into the playoffs this season. After a great first half, the team really struggled at times during the second half, even losing the division in the process. Team went 34-39 during the second half of the season. All it takes it to catch lightning in a bottle and a World Series victory could be yours.]
20th Hitting/ 8th Pitching/ 16th Fielding – Played in the 3rd toughest division

THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD TEAMS
13)New Britain Fighting Beer Drinkers (83-79) (LW – 12) Down 1 spot from last week. Team went 12-9 during the week. [The playoffs where right there for the Fighting Beer Drinkers but the on unthinkable happened during the final series of the season, getting killed every game, with everything on the line. Team went 38-35 during the second half of the season. That series lose to Trenton could hang with this team all off-season.]
18th Hitting/ 11th Pitching/ 11th Fielding – Played in the 2nd toughest division

14)Jackson Pollocks (83-79) (LW – 13) Down 1 spot from last week. Team went 13-8 during the week. [What a great second half of the season for the Pollocks and grabbing the last playoff spot. It came down to the wire but the team found a way into the playoffs. Team went 41-32 during the second half of the season. Hope that big run during the last couple weeks can hold up in the playoffs.]
26th Hitting/ 9th Pitching/ 23rd Fielding – Played in the 4th toughest division

15)Charlotte Knights (81-81) (LW – 15) No movement from last week. Team went 11-10 during the week. [The Knights where so close to the playoffs but one bad week down the stretch killed any chance of that goal happening this season. The team really needed some close games to go there way the last couple weeks in the season but they just couldn’t get that luck on there side. Team went 37-36 during the second half of the season. Don’t worry Knights I believe you could be a team to watch out for next season.]
11th Hitting/ 17th Pitching/ 7th Fielding – Played in the 4th toughest division

THE BELOW AVERAGE TEAMS
16)Tampa Bay Maelstrom (81-81) (LW – 16) No movement from last week. Team went 11-10 during the week. [The Maelstrom had a nice second half to get to the .500 mark. The team seemed to run out of gas down the stretch with some average play during the last two weeks of the season. Team went 39-34 during the second half of the season. Another team looking for pitching and defense next season.]
8th Hitting/ 28th Pitching/ 25th Fielding – Played in the weakest division

17)Las Vegas Aces (81-81) (LW – 18) Up 1 spot from last week. Team went 11-10 during the week. [The Aces where right there all season for a chance at a playoff berth but they fell just short. Going 14-16 within the division will be looked at as the reason the team missed there chance. Team went 37-36 during the second half of the season. I wonder which way the Aces will go next season, will they improve or fall?]
19th Hitting/ 13th Pitching/ 13th Fielding – Played in the 7th toughest division

18)Chicago Gangsters (76-86) (LW – 17) Down 1 spot from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [The Gangsters couldn’t do anything right down the stretch and losing out on any chance at the playoffs in the process. If you can’t field and pitch, it really doesn’t matter how much offense you have. Team went 30-43 during the second half of the season. Repeat after me, PITCHING and FIELDING.]
5th Hitting/ 27th Pitching/ 28th Fielding – Played in the 3rd toughest division

19)Sacramento Terrible Two’s (78-84) (LW – 20) Up 1 spot from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [Terrible Two’s lived up to there name, having two completely different seasons. Before the All-star break they struggled in all phases of the game but really turned things around during the second half. Team went 40-33 during the second half. Don’t be surprised if the Terrible Two’s make the playoffs next year.]
15th Hitting/ 22nd Pitching/ 4th Fielding – Played in the 6th toughest division

20)Salt Lake City Ampersands (78-84) (LW – 22) Up 2 spots from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [The Ampersands would like to know what went wrong during the second half. Team went from 12th in the power rankings at the all-star break but fell 8 spots during the second half. Team went 31-42 during the second half of the season. I hope that the second half of this season doesn’t carry over to next season.]
16th Hitting/ 21st Pitching/ 15th Fielding – Played in the 2nd toughest division

IF I ONLY HAD A OFFENSE

21)Norfolk NAVY SEALs (77-85) (LW – 23) Up 2 spots from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [Navy Seals are just another team with a great pitching staff but a offense that struggled, bringing the team down. The pitchers where forced to pitch as close to perfect all season with the offense only scoring 3.85 runs. Team went 36-37 during the second half of the season. Offense, go after offense during the off-season Norfolk.]
29th Hitting/ 6th Pitching/ 6th Fielding – Played in the 5th toughest division

22)St. Louis River Dogs (78-84) (LW – 21) Down 1 spot from last week. Team went 8-13 during the week. [With an outside chance of making the playoffs the River Dogs really folded the last week of the season. It’s just really hard to win a ton of games when you’re giving up 85 more runs then your team has scored on the season. The team went 34-39 during the second half. Hopefully taking a step back during the second half will be the motivation to improve next season.]
28th Hitting/ 14th Pitching/ 8th Fielding – Played in the 3rd toughest division

23)Anaheim Angels (75-87) (LW – 19) Down 4 spots from last week. Team went 6-15 during the week. [The Angels had the pitching to compete this season but the offense couldn’t hold up there part. The team played in 48 1-run games this season going 20-28 and if they had another good bat who knows what would have happened. The team went 31-42 during the second half. Please find a bat next season.]
30th Hitting/ 7th Pitching/ 27th Fielding – Played in the 7th toughest division

THE LOVEABLE LOSERS
24)Salem Squirrel Monkeys (70-92) (LW – 24) No movement from last week. Team went 9-12 during the week. [The Squirrel Monkeys had to be the most constant team all season. They never had a big week or a bad week, just playing .400 ball all season. The team went 32-41 during the second half. I really don’t know if the Squirrel Monkeys will improve next season or not.]
21st Hitting/ 20th Pitching/ 24th Fielding – Played in the 6th toughest division

25)Trenton Thunder (74-88) (LW – 27) Up 2 spots from last week. Team went 12-9 during the week. [A nice last two weeks of the season for the Thunder. The fans in Trenton could be very exciting about next season. Team went 38-35 during the second half. Look for Trenton to be a team that will compete next season after a great second half of the season.]
25th Hitting/ 18th Pitching/ 20th Fielding – Played in the 2nd toughest division

26)Scottsdale Sidewinders (75-87) (LW – 26) No movement from last week. Team went 11-10 during the week. [The Sidewinders had a nice offense scoring 4.85 a game but giving up 5.51 runs per game is hurt them. Prove that you need some pitching and defense to win and not just offense. Team went 31-42 during the second half. Please get some pitching next season.]
13th Hitting/ 29th Pitching/ 26th Fielding – Played in the 6th toughest division

ENJOYING THE LINKS
27)Jacksonville Junk Yard Dogs (69-93) (LW – 25) Down 2 spots from last week. Team went 5-16 during the week. [All bark and no bite this season from the Junk Yard Dogs. Going 27-54 at home is probably the biggest reason for the disappointing season. The team went 29-44 during the second half. I don’t know if the team needs to move but they need to find a way to win at home next season.]
22nd Hitting/ 26th Pitching/ 10th Fielding – Played in the 4th toughest division

28)Colorado Springs Sky Sox (68-94) (LW – 28) No movement from last week. Team went 8-13 during the week. [The offense is the biggest reason for the Sky Sox failure this season. Scoring only 606 runs will bring down any franchise, no matter how good the pitching staff is. The team went 30-43 during the second half. I really hope the Sky Sox can find some offense next season or they could be in trouble again.]
32nd Hitting/ 23rd Pitching/ 12th Fielding – Played in the 7th toughest division

29)Richmond Spiders (61-101) (LW – 29) No movement from last week. Team went 10-11 during the week. [Where the Spiders the worst team in the league? If you believe there record you would say yes, but you would say no when you look at the players and stats. The team went 27-46 during the second half. I hope the team enjoys there first overall pick in the draft.]
23rd Hitting/ 24th Pitching/ 9th Fielding – Played in the 5th toughest division

30)Pawtucket Paw Soxs (68-94) (LW – 30) No Movement from last week. Team went 13-9 during the week. [The Paw Soxs had a very nice final week of the season but that’s about all that went right this season. The team went 31-42 during the second half. I think we all know what the Paw Soxs will be looking for during the off-season.]
24th Hitting/ 32nd Pitching/ 31st Fielding – Played in the 5th toughest division

31)Charleston Battery (64-98) (LW – 32) Up 1 spot from last week. Team went 11-10 during the week. [The Battery looked as they might pull a last place finish in the rankings from the first week to the last week but the last two weeks of the season proved that the Battery could play. The team went 35-38 during the second half. I expect to see the Battery make some noise next season.]
27th Hitting/ 30th Pitching/ 21st Fielding – Played in the weakest division

HOPELESS
32)Little Rock Team Discovery Channel (62-100) (LW – 31) Down 1 spot from last week. Team went 5-16 during the week. [The Team Discovery Channel has become the first team to go from number one spot to the last spot in power rankings history. Team just got worst during the second half going 25-48. Get ready for some heads to roll in Little Rock during the off-season.]
