>THE ELITE TEAMS
1.
Chicago Black Sox (115-47) (Previous Week – 1) No movement from last week. The team played in the 2nd toughest division. (If you didn’t think the Black Sox was the best team in the league, then you must have been living under a rock. Chicago as all kinds of talent but I don’t think they can win the World Series. Should be fun to see.)
1st Hitting / 4th Pitching / 1st Fielding

2. Pawtucket Marathon Men (111-51) (Previous Week – 2) No movement from last week. The team played in the 2nd toughest division. (Wow. The Marathon Men has to be the best team I’ve ever seen to only make it as a wildcard team. Wonder if not winning the division will affect the team during the playoffs?)
4th Hitting / 5th Pitching / 3rd Fielding

THE MAGNIFICENT TEAMS
3.
Omaha Indians (106-56) (Previous Week – 3) No movement from last week. The team played in the 3rd toughest division. (Great job by the Indians in winning the American League West and getting a first round bye. The team better hope they still have luck on there side during the playoffs, as winning 38 1-run games could come back and haunt them during the playoffs.)
10th Hitting / 8th Pitching / 7th Fielding

4. New York Mud Sharks (102-60) (Previous Week – 5) Up 1 spot from last week. The team played in the 5th toughest division. (The Mud Sharks are my pick to make it to the World Series for the American League. The Sharks are just hot right now.)
9th Hitting / 9th Pitching / 6th Fielding

5. Chicago Choking Goats (100-62) (Previous Week – 6) Up 1 spot from last week. The team played in the toughest division. (I’m probably going to get killed for this but I see the Chocking Goats making the World Series for the National League. Hope your knocking on wood there Chicago?)
12th Hitting / 1st Pitching / 9th Fielding

6. Toronto Tiger Tanks (99-63) (Previous Week – 4) Down 2 spots from last week. The team played in the toughest division. (The Tiger Tanks chocked down the stretch and lost the National League North division. Can the team rebound from this disaster and make a nice run in the playoffs?)
3rd Hitting / 13th Pitching / 10th Fielding

7. Fresno Grizzlies (101-61) (Previous Week – 7) No movement from last week. The team played in the 4th toughest division. (If they had a better defense I would have them as the favorite in the National League but 119 errors and 64 negative plays could make an appearance during the playoffs)
11th Hitting / 7th Pitching / 31st Fielding

8. Richmond Red Birds (96-66) (Previous Week – 8) Up No movement last week. The team played in the 5th toughest division. (One bad week cost the Red Birds the American League East crown but they can quickly get there revenge on the Mud Sharks during the first round of the playoffs.)
5th Hitting / 11th Pitching / 8th Fielding

9. Nashville Redneks (98-64) (Previous Week – 11) Up 2 spots from last week. The team played in the 6th toughest division. (Since your not going to make past the first round in the playoffs, I’m going to be nice and put you in the Top 10.)
15th Hitting / 12th Pitching / 16th Fielding

10. Norfolk N’Way (90-72) (Previous Week – 10) No movement from last week. The team played in the weakest division. (A great team always seems to get left out of the playoffs and it was the N’Way this season. Don’t worry Norfolk with the pitching staff you have, I see playoffs in your future.)
17th Hitting / 2nd Pitching / 2nd Fielding

11. Minnesota L’étoile du Nord (93-69) (Previous Week – 12) Up 1 spot from last week. The team played in the toughest division. (No one in the league likes there pitching staff but when you have a 3.27 team ERA does it really matter what the league thinks.)
25th Hitting / 3rd Pitching / 4th Fielding

12. Scranton StormTroopers (91-71) (Previous Week – 9) Down 3 spots from last week. The team played in the weakest division. (The StormTroopers won the National League East division crown but it was a battle till the last day. Either the StormTroopers will be a big run in the playoffs or find themselves being kicked out real fast.)
16th Hitting / 6th Pitching / 14th Fielding


THE ABOVE AVERAGE TEAMS
13. Montgomery Biscuits (91-71) (Previous Week – 13) No movement from last week. The team played in the 7th toughest division. (Watch out for the Biscuits in the playoffs. If the offense gets hot they will be things very interesting.)
7th Hitting / 16th Pitching / 12th Fielding

14. Boise Bombers (88-74) (Previous Week – 14) No movement from last week. The team played in the 4th toughest division. (The Bombers played well all season, so it’s a shame that the reason there not in the playoffs is because of the bullpen. 26 blown saves is not a playoff worthy bullpen.)
22nd Hitting / 10th Pitching / 20th Fielding

15. Jackson Rebels (85-77) (Previous Week – 15) No movement from last week. The team played in the 6th toughest division. (This team did just about every right this season, not a great but good. The Rebels was missing that one thing to push them into a playoff team though.)
13th Hitting / 15th Pitching / 5th Fielding


THE RUN OF THE MILL TEAMS
16. Helena Montana Moose (81-81) (Previous Week – 17) Up 1 spot from last week. The team played in the 3rd toughest division. (The Moose was the definition of average this season. 41-40 at home against 40-41 on the road, only 18 more runs scored then given up, 15-15 against there division and I can give more examples but I’ll be here all day.)
6th Hitting / 21st Pitching / 28th Fielding

THE BELOW AVERAGE TEAMS
17. Monterrey Thunderbirds (79-83) (Previous Week – 19) Up 2 spots from last week. The team played in the 7th toughest division. (What a great second half for the Thunderbirds but everyone in Monterrey has to be scratching there heads on why the offense didn’t come alive sooner in the season.)
2nd Hitting / 27th Pitching / 25th Fielding

18. Arizona Wildcats (80-82) (Previous Week – 16) Down 2 spots from last week. The team played in the 3rd toughest division. (The offense was hot and cold all season but the pitching staff was awful all season. It’s good to score 5.36 runs per game but when you’re giving up 5.54 runs per game, it’s hard to have a winning season.)
8th Hitting / 26th Pitching / 11th Fielding

19. Detroit Legends (76-86) (Previous Week – 18) Down 1 spot from last week. The team played in the 2nd toughest division. (The team got better during the second half but expect some major changes during the off-season.)
21st Hitting / 14th Pitching / 23rd Fielding

THE LIFE SUPPORT TEAMS
20. Vancouver Giants (70-92) (Previous Week – 22) Up 2 spots from last week. The team played in the 3rd toughest division. (The offense had its bright spots but struggled to get runners home but the biggest problem was the pitching staff. A 5.01 team ERA will kill any season for any team.)
19th Hitting / 23rd Pitching / 15th Fielding

THE DOA TEAMS
21.
Ottawa Fat Cats (71-91) (Previous Week – 20) Down 1 spot from last week. The team played in the toughest division. (The Fat Cats had 222 homeruns on the season but struggle in runners in scoring position. Also everyone in the bullpen needs to be released because 22 blown saves is awful.)
26th Hitting / 20th Pitching / 22nd Fielding

THE SLIGHTLY BETTER THEN TRIPLE-A TEAMS
22. Charlotte Golden Knights (70-92) (Previous Week – 25) Up 3 spots from last week. The team played in the 7th toughest division. (The offense was good enough to compete but the pitchers where horrible. You have to find some pitching during the off-season if you want to compete next season.)
14th Hitting / 31st Pitching / 21st Fielding

23. Salem Salamanders (64-98) (Previous Week – 23) No movement from last week. The team played in the 4th toughest division. (The Salamanders would have had a better record if they didn’t play in the National League West. The team went 58-74 against everyone outside there division.)
23rd Hitting / 22nd Pitching/ 27th Fielding

24. Jacksonville Gators (65-97) (Previous Week – 21) Down 3 spots from last week. The team played in the 7th toughest division. (The Gators defense has to be something they need to look at during the off-season. 115 errors and only 16 plus plays are near the bottom of the league for both.)
24th Hitting / 19th Pitching / 32nd Fielding

25. Mexico City Las Lluvias (64-98) (Previous Week – 24) Down 1 spot from last week. The team played in the 6th toughest division. (The Las Lluvias really needed to do something about the bullpen as the 20 blown saves really hurt them.)
20th Hitting / 28th Pitching / 28th Fielding

26. Dover Death Dealers (62-100) (Previous Week – 26) No movement from last week. The team played in the weakest division. (Playing in the National League and the weakest division in the league has to be the reason the Death Dealers won 62 games this season. I don’t see any other way they could have won that many games.)
27th Hitting / 29th Pitching / 19th Fielding

27. Atlanta Jets (61-101) (Previous Week – 27) No movement from last week. The team played in the 6th toughest division. (You don’t have to hit for power to be a good team but you can’t strikeout 1219 times during the season. Every ball in play is important when you only have a .346 slugging percentage.)
32nd Hitting / 17th Pitching / 13th Fielding

28. Las Vegas Whales (64-98) (Previous Week – 28) No movement from last week. The team played in the 4th toughest division. (This is what happens to teams that can’t score. Scoring only 3.73 per game wasn’t the worst in the league but it was close and the biggest reason for the Whales almost losing 100 games.)
31st Hitting / 18th Pitching / 18th Fielding

29. Philadelphia Stallones (62-100) (Previous Week – 31) Up 2 spots from last week. The team played in the 5th toughest division. (I don’t know what was worse, watching the Stallones play this season or watching Rocky V?)
28th Hitting / 25th Pitching / 17th Fielding

THE NEVER HAD A CHANCE TEAMS
30. Augusta Nationals (57-105) (Previous Week – 30) No movement from last week. The team played in the weakest division. (Even though the Nationals played defense like a bunch of Little Leaguers with 137 errors on the season, they can at least tell themselves they weren’t the worst team in the league.)
30th Hitting / 24th Pitching / 30th Fielding

31. Rochester »»»Rubber Duckies««« (51-111) (Previous Week – 29) Down 2 spots from last week. The team played in 5th toughest division. (Take away the fact that the Duckies where 14-36 in one-run games, a league low 23 saves, a league low .246 average, .311 OBP and a 5.32 team ERA, the team wasn’t really all that bad.)
29th Hitting / 30th Pitching / 26th Fielding

32. Hartford Whalers (49-113) (Previous Week – 32) No movement from last week. The team played in the 2nd toughest division. (Let’s list some of the things that have put the Whalers in this position. Only team to allow over a 1000 runs, a 6.32 team ERA, teams hit a .300 average against them, the only team with less then 1000 strikeouts. I hope you get a pitcher with that first overall pick next season)
18th Hitting / 32nd Pitching / 24th Fielding
