  1. Wichita (1) – leads the league with 9 complete games, better than 4 teams who have yet to get to 1 complete game
  2. Madison (2) – Madison was forced to pick up a 3rd catcher as the result of C Carter Lowe suffering through an injury prone season and Backup Chris Bush's exhaustion thinking about squatting to take a crap let alone catch a full game
  3. New York (NL) (3) – There is but one weakness in the NY pitching staff, his name is Lonny Mendoza. You might recognize his by his 13.03 ERA and 2.9 WHIP. Don't count on those numbers to last long, or if they do for him to last much longer.
  4. Toledo (5) – a strong week by Stubby Cyr's and he could get his 1500th RBI this week.
  5. Colorado Springs (4) Pedro Cela is only 25 and looking to join the 200 Career stolen base club this season.
  6. Memphis (8) – Aubrey Kell on his 4th team in 5 seasons (including 2 separate stints with CSP) has proven valuable this season dropping in 18 hr and 71 rbi to earn his 3 year commitment in Memphis.
  7. Philadelphia (9) – Dennis Lockwood has been a real blessing batting 20 points over his career average while providing more offensive production
  8. Oklahoma City (10) – Pitching staff has limited hitters to 78 Hr to lead the league
  9. Columbus (6) - 13-4 versus the division, but as a team they have started to slide. Playing Yankee ball in Columbus is starting to backfire.
  10. Burlington (11) – close to wrapping up their 1st division title under

  11. Iowa City (13) – Damion Eldred Stole his 200th bag this week
  12. San Diego (14) – Thomas Campbell is 10 hits shy of 2100 for his career. 5th all time
  13. New York (AL) (7) - Bombers need to decide if they are playing for this season for next. They teeter on the cusp either way right now. They still have the potential to win it all if they slip into the playoffs.

  14. Las Vegas (17) –. 24/40 in save situations, the bullpen just isn't doing the job. They need to work better for them to get the last playoff spot locked up.
  15. Washington D.C. (12) - Last few weeks have shown Washington that they are improved, but might not be on par with the other AL Teams; they need to pick up a few more stabilizing forces to retake the division.
  16. Santa Fe (15) - Donnie Dubose's injury might have derailed his shot at 1500 hits this season. He stands at 1462
  17. Baltimore (20) - LF Charles Coles could be the most underrated guy in the NL, never on a great team yet is in the top100 in all-time hits, RBI, and Runs. Not too shabby for a guy whose made 1 all-star team in Season 6?
  18. Kansas City (16) – Scandal casts a dark cloud over David Seanez's return this week as KC management has been linked to the sex trade industry.
  19. Fargo (18) - has had 2 players with over 20 game hitting streaks. Nicky Stewart
    (25), Paul Murata
  20. Cincinnati (21) - grounds into 3 times the double plays as the best team. Root of the offensive whoa?
  21. Pittsburgh (19) – Julian Bonilla has cost the steelmakers 17 minus plays. Time for him at the hot corner is gone
  22. Louisville (24) – SP Jim Small's injury might be a blessing in disguise as he could spend the rest of his rule 5 season stashed away on the DL and have a chance to develop for next season.
  23. Florida (22) - RP Santiago Frias is the most pressured reliever this season inheriting 47 runners already this year.
  24. Colorado (26) - leading the league in IBB, not sure what is so fearsome about this lineup of speed, but OKAY.
  25. Monterrey(23)- Sam miller stand 20 SB from the magical 500 SB plateau
  26. Durham (27) - Richie Cormier stands 25 RBI Short of 1000, hope for a hot streak or maybe next season.
  27. Milwaukee (29) - Matt Mathews playing like a SS at 3rd base with 22 errors, probably not his best position, you think?
  28. Atlanta Braves (30) - scoring ½ the runs of the #2 team in the league. Jonny Power has yet to commit an error in RF
  29. Cheyenne (25) - Expected Winning % is almost 50 points higher than they are doing, shows they should turn things around some, but not enough to better
  30. Vancouver (28) – 110 errors to lead the league, bad fielding kills you every time
  31. St. Louis (31) - Albert Sanchez 300 stolen bases, seems to be all the fans were looking for attendance has fallen this week.
  32. Hartford (32) – Winning record in the past 15 games. Team is going to start to climb the standings pretty soon
