Another week, another new team atop the Power Rankings. There are times when teams are absolutely on fire and stay on top for weeks at a time. There are also others where their reign lasts exactly one week. Over the past week, it was the latter. Enough about the past, let's look at the new Power Rankings.

1. Los Angeles Dodgers

2. Houston Astros

3. Arizona Diamondbacks

4. Washington Nationals

5. Colorado Rockies

6. Milwaukee Brewers

7. Boston Red Sox

8. New York Yankees

9. Cleveland Indians

10. Texas Rangers

11. Los Angeles Angels

12. Tampa Bay Rays

13. Seattle Mariners

14. Minnesota Twins

15. Baltimore Orioles

16. Chicago Cubs

17. Kansas City Royals

18. Atlanta Braves

19. Pittsburgh Pirates

20. Toronto Blue Jays

21. St. Louis Cardinals

22. Miami Marlins

23. New York Mets

24. Oakland Athletics

25. Detroit Tigers

26. Chicago White Sox

27. Cincinnati Reds

28. San Diego Padres

29. San Francisco Giants

30. Philadelphia Phillies

Notes about the Power Rankings:

The Dodgers have won 10 in a row and absolutely deserve to be on top. The Astros had been excellent all season, but it is impossible to put them above the red hot Dodgers.

The Indians and Twins are keep trading series sweeps on the road. Cleveland swept Minnesota in four games over three days last week and Minnesota swept Cleveland in three this past weekend. The Indians are clearly the better team, however Minnesota looks primed to be a thorn in the side of the Tribe all season long.

What happened to the legend to be Kyle Schwarber? Oh that's right, he was never that good. Schwarber seems to be Russell Branyan 2.0, strikeout, walk or home run. Schwarber is now at AAA Iowa and the Cubs are still barely above water.

Have the Tigers fired Brad Ausmus yet? Have they begun trading any movable assets? The answer to those questions is no. But they should start doing both. They are a complete disaster. Time to fire the manager and blow it up.

The less said about the Giants and the Phillies, the better. Let's leave it at that.
