Role reversal. That is what this week’s edition of my power rankings are all about.
Of the 16 teams in the league who currently have winning record, eight of them won two games or less last week. Of the 14 teams who have records below .500, nine won at least four games.
The Milwaukee Brewers were a perfect 7-0. The Chicago White Sox swept a series against the St. Louis Cardinals and only lost once for the week.
The San Francisco Giants were the only team in baseball who didn’t win a game this week. The Tampa Bay Rays won just once and were swept by the Cleveland Indians at one point.
This is why we love baseball right? Any team can be beat by anyone on any given day, even when everything we have seen from their body of work says otherwise.
Here are the power rankings for the week.
