Opening Day Power Rankings

Teams Runs Differential
Jacksonville 302 #1 Offense, #1 pitching, 4 of the best 18 hitters,4 of the best 16 pitchers.
Kansas City 214 "KC probably missed out on their best chance at winning it all last year. The changes will be slight, but the cap caused some downgrading, which will just get worse in coming seasons. Still, a loaded team....just not as loaded as last year."
Las Vegas 187 Vegas has an amazing offense and will be in the running for the $25 GC.
Scranton 171 Last years champ will be in an excellent position to repeat should something happen to JAX (again)
Augusta 141 The team with the biggest jump. I like their chances to go from a .500 team to a playoff team.
Vancouver 91 Down a little from last season, the offense will still be top notch.
Dover 64 A nice all around team, they should finally make the playoffs in the weaker NL.
Cheyenne 55 Their offense should be enough to keeep in the race for the WC.
Jackson 39 "Perennially on the verge, Mudslide will again be looking up at KC, LV and Van"
Scottsdale 16 The future has arrived and Herzog could win the MVP.
Los Angeles 8 Their roster is a little in complete so this is a bit of a guess.
Washington DC 4 In the wrong division. JAX is the best team, Bal has the best pitchign and Dover is a playoff team
Texas 2 Probably made a mistake not finding a way to keep Troncosco
Little Rock -17 Was about .500 two seasons ago, about .500 last season, about .500 this season. My only complaint is that they seem to waiting for an engraved invition to bring up Juan Martinez who is a top 50 pitcher right now.
Buffalo -20 "My SS still doesn't like this team, but they have consistently outperformed those projections; can they do it a third season in a row?"
Baltimore -25 Best pitching last season, 3rd most highly rated now. My SS says they will struggle to score, but my hear says they'll find a way.
Chicago -28 Their Harry Johnson Will Gray. Its not only a funny sentence, it’s a pair of top 10 players.
Helena -28 After seasons of 60ish wins, the future looks bright
Boise -33 Florida used to be the team I had a hard time coming up with something for, now its Boise.
Salt Lake City -38 Their system is stacked, but it hasn't turned in to wins. . . Yet.
Burlington -39 Another team that appears to be on the cusp of something nice.
Philadelphia -49 Since no AL team thinks Geronimo Marquez can play I'm going after him.
Trenton -51 Very good offense. Just needs a little more pitching
Santa Fe -57 Very good offense. Just needs a little more pitching
Nashville -82 Season 2 of the rebuild begins
San Diego -93 Was season 28 a series of happya ccidents or for real? We'll see this season.
Syracuse -94 A couple of amazing trades will show their impact soon.
Sacramento -106 Surprised Knine doesn't have them higher yet.
Florida -108 "Tigers will move back up to .500 and higher after this season."
Pittsburgh -122 Still unpacking Jbugg's mess
San Juan -133 Already 2-0. This may be the last time they have the best record in the league.
New Orleans -169 They always exeed my expectations. Imagine if they had talent on the roster.

Power Rankings

Rank Team record last quarter score Comment
1 Jacksonville Abominations (NL) 64-23 36-11 1.2 Weakest Jacksonville team in 3 seasons, but the rest of the elite has come back the pack too.
2 Kansas City Jayhawks (AL) 62-25 32-15 1.8 Incredible offence reminds me of season 25 Las Vegas
3 Las Vegas Desperados (AL) 53-34 28-19 4 Big gap between KC and Vegas. Still good, no longer great.
4 Vancouver Voodoo (AL) 55-32 32-15 4.2 After a slowest start Vancouver played as well as JAX and KC in the second quarter.
5 Scranton Express (NL) 52-35 29-18 4.8 Ned Shields already has 10 wins.
6 Dover Rabid Dogs (NL) 51-36 32-15 7.2 Making a real push to join the top 5. KD has taken them from terrible to a likely playing team
7 Durham Bulls (NL) 49-38 27-20 8.1 In the fight of their lives for a WC spot. Should be fun.
8 Baltimore Buushwackerz (NL) 49-38 25-22 9.3 Pitching staff has been every bit as good as Jax. Darkhorse WS contender.
9 Burlington Dark Monsters (AL) 49-38 28-19 10.7 Well represented with 4 all-stars.
10 Scottsdale Cardinals (NL) 47-40 21-26 11.4 After a lightning fast start has slowed down. The talent is there. Will the Stokes deal put them over the top?
11 Syracuse SlumpBusters (AL) 49-38 28-19 12.1 Amazing turn around is only getting better and better
12 Jackson Mudslide (AL) 43-44 21-26 13.1 In first despite losing record
13 Boise Spuds (AL) 44-43 24-23 14.1 Only allowed 36 errors
14 Cheyenne Feather Heads (AL) 42-45 20-27 14.8 Nicky Cooke is a real MVP threat
15 Little Rock And Rollers (NL) 44-43 23-24 15.7 #1 in walks drawn with 361
16 Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalobuffalo (NL) 42-45 22-25 17 The champs really struggled in the 2nd quarter. Highly unlikely to win 92 again.
17 Augusta Fire Blitz (AL) 40-47 22-25 17 Pitching has been pretty good.
18 Houston Hitmen (NL) 41-46 21-26 17.3 Roster says they are good, record says they aren't. I'd like a nice panic trade to be sure.
19 San Diego Surf Sharks (AL) 44-43 22-25 18.8 Tied for the 2nd most AL all-stars with 3.
20 Philadelphia Erffdoggs (AL) 42-45 25-22 19.8 55 million in their prospect budget in the last two seasons should spell good things soon.
21 Pittsburgh Ellis D's (NL) 39-48 17-30 21.5 Fell off the cliff after a fast start.
22 Trenton Fishermen (AL) 41-46 20-27 21.7 Best record since season 22
23 Los Angeles Lothbroks (NL) 37-50 25-22 22.2 Most plus plays and plus play lately.
24 Chicago Orphans (NL) 37-50 21-26 22.6 Seem to be back in rebuild mode.
25 Sacramento Maters (NL) 38-49 17-30 23.7 Tied for the worst record in the 2nd half.
26 New Orleans Big Test Icicles (AL) 38-49 23-24 25.1 Played up to the .500 team I thought they'd be in the 2nd quarter.
27 San Juan Padres (NL) 37-50 18-29 25.4 Continues to get top flight catching
28 Nashville BootLeggers (AL) 34-53 17-30 26.7 Omar Gutierrez has a real shot at 60 HR's
29 Helena Wild Turkeys (AL) 32-55 18-29 26.7 Tough initial season for run-n-run
30 San Francisco Gothams (NL) 34-53 20-27 27.9 The record is no good, but they have 8 guys in the Futures game.
31 Santa Fe Fire (NL) 32-55 19-28 30.9 Another rebuilding year for Santa Fe, but no losing records in the minor leagues
32 Florida TIGERS (AL) 31-56 19-28 31.2 Just not enough talent.

Power Rankings

Team record raw score
1. Kansas City Jayhawks (AL) 30-10 1 Number one in every way. Is this the season Dakar gets over the top?
2. Jacksonville Abominations (NL) 28-12 2 Pitching has declined significantly from the last two seasons.
3. Las Vegas Desperados (AL) 25-15 3.75 Was 11-12 at one point I think and then went Desperados
4. Scranton Express (NL) 23-17 6.5 Only 14th in runs scored. If that improves expect them back in the elite.
5. Scottsdale Cardinals (NL) 26-14 7 The talent was always there, now they are executing! Better record than goose.
6. Vancouver Voodoo (AL) 23-17 7.5 Above average at everything as usual.
7. Baltimore Buushwackerz (NL) 24-16 7.75 Don't think I haven't noticed they are top four in expected winning percentage.
8. Cheyenne Feather Heads (AL) 22-18 9 Nicky Cooke has 53 RBI's already. 200 in sight?
9. Durham Bulls (NL) 22-18 9 2nd in runs scored
10. Jackson Mudslide (AL) 22-18 9.25 Alejandro Valenzuela is CRUSHING and for only 3.8 mil is close to the best deal in the league.
11. Pittsburgh Ellis D's (NL) 22-18 15 The surprise team (to me) of the seasons so far. Jbugg was holding them back.
12. Houston Hitmen (NL) 20-20 15.25 Better talent and expected than Little Rock, but worse results.
13. Little Rock And Rollers (NL) 21-19 15.5 With a 1 game lead over Houston one wonders how long he can keep mega prospect Juan Martinez in the minors.
14. Burlington Dark Monsters (AL) 21-19 16.5 Thomas Roosevelt has 31 steals in only 40 games. WOW!
15. San Diego Surf Sharks (AL) 22-18 16.75 Great pitching, just needs to score more runs
16. Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalobuffalo (NL) 20-20 17.25 Like Syracuse a few seasons ago, the champs may not make the playoffs.
17. Augusta Fire Blitz (AL) 18-22 17.5 My SS likes 'em, but the record doesn't back it up.
18. Syracuse SlumpBusters (AL) 21-19 17.5 What a recovery! Syracuse is back!
19. Boise Spuds (AL) 20-20 19.25 Mark Martian is the best closer in Hobbs so far (11/12 1.33 ERA 0.79 WHIP)
20. Trenton Fishermen (AL) 21-19 19.25 Its exciting to see Trenton making a run!
21. Dover Rabid Dogs (NL) 19-21 19.75 Plagued by injuries to the pitching staff and underperforming hitters yet only 2 under .500
22. Sacramento Maters (NL) 21-19 20.75 I have no idea how knine has this team over .500. One of the best game managers in HBD.
23. Nashville BootLeggers (AL) 17-23 21.25 Not getting what they hoped for with their 105 million dollar payroll.
24. Chicago Orphans (NL) 16-24 22 Has talent, but is massively underperforming. Very curious to see what he gets for Mule Meek.
25. San Juan Padres (NL) 19-21 23 Rookie Javier Lopez is the best defensive catcher in Hobbs to this point.
26. Helena Wild Turkeys (AL) 14-26 24.5 5.50 team ERA is holding them back
27. Los Angeles Lothbroks (NL) 12-28 25 2-10 in one run games does not help.
28. Philadelphia Erffdoggs (AL) 17-23 25 More blown saves than saves is contributing to the disappointing season.
29. San Francisco Gothams (NL) 14-26 27.25 6.10 team ERA. Pack it in or hit the trade market?
30. New Orleans Big Test Icicles (AL) 15-25 27.5 Underperforming to this point, good D, not much else.
31. Santa Fe Fire (NL) 13-27 28.5 The defense is really not doing the pitching staff any favors.
32. Florida TIGERS (AL) 12-28 31 The worst in many categories. I don't see this improving this season.

Season 27: Preseason Report



Teams RD W L Comments




Jacksonville 259 110 52 .4 runs separate the top 2. Just rounded differently. Both reams are loaded.

Kansas City 258 110 52 The most complete team in Hobbs

Scranton 200 103 59 After a slight dip last season and a new name, the Scranton franchise is back.

Las Vegas 192 102 60 Top offense in Hobbs, but pitching is a couple of notches below the top 3.

Vancouver 128 95 67 Good enough to win the WS. Anyone below Vancouver would be a longshot.

Jackson 66 88 74 A team on the rise for a while, 90 wins seems likely.

Chicago 60 88 74 Last season's 80 wins was a disappointment, but this season looks better.

Dover 44 86 76 Kcfan has finished the rebuild quite nicely. If he can get a little more pitching he will be very dangerous.

Cheyenne 40 85 77 Averaged 93 wins over the last 5 seasons. Probably about the same this season.

Durham 30 84 78 I don't know how many wind they will have, but history says it will end in a 4 or 5.

Nashville 22 83 79 Big salaries equal big expectations for this 80 win team.

Augusta 20 83 79 Will a new location equal big results? I'm guessing 85 wins.

Houston 1 81 81 My eyes like team better than my SS. I'm going to assume my eyes are right.

Santa Cruz -5 80 82 Colton worked hard to rebuild this team and finnski sees primed to take them to glory.

Los Angeles -7 80 82 Stnick has his team ready for the playoffs potentially. He has resources in the minors to help or trade for help.

Helena -11 80 82 A complete teardown seems likely. Not likely to finish this high.

Buffalo -14 79 83 My SS never liked the champs and the off season does not seem to have improved things.

Baltimore -17 79 83 Declined a little bit from previous season. Still talented.

Little Rock -22 79 83 Late season collapse cost them a playoff spot. They have already added an IFA. The franchise seems to be getting healthier by the season.

Boise -27 78 84 Decent at everything and they often over perform expectations.

Burlington -36 77 85 Doume has the team ready to start challenging for a playoff spot.

Pittsburgh -45 76 86 Interesting off season. Need to rebuild seemed clear, but rigbystar took it a different way.

San Francisco -56 75 87 Slow decline likely to continue, but the budget is in great sharp.

San Juan -68 73 89 One strong pitcher from being able to contend.

Syracuse -73 73 89 Expensive and not that good, but at least they have the first pick.

Trenton -80 72 90 Highest initial rank in a few seasons. Things are looking up.

Florida -94 71 91 Not bad at anything, just not really good at anything either.

Philadelphia -100 70 92 May be emerging from the rebuild. Has more talent than last season and his budget is in great shape.

Santa Fe -129 67 95 Not really this bad. Their roster is incomplete and I can only use what's there.

Sacramento -148 65 97 Power ranking wise Sacramento is going the wrong way.

San Diego -151 64 98 Despite a wonderful season last year, I just don't see the stars to justify a higher ranking. Only Maxwell would get playing time on the Jayhawks for example.

New Orleans -237 55 107 One of the most successful owners in Hobbs, but I don't see it on this roster.
