  1. Wichita (1) – How good is
    Vicente Arias, only a 30/30 potential with an almost 500 OBP. Scary good
  2. Madison (2) - P David Hernandez is a preliminary all-star. Who says you need to get it over the plate to have success.
  3. New York (NL) (3) – SS Luis Matos is having a down year so far, if he recovers and starts hitting this team could be the team to beat on the rankings
  4. Colorado Springs (4) LF Jesse Walton's career year has kept CSP in the position to look down on the competition.
  5. Toledo (9) – LF Aaron Holt is lost for the season, so goes their leadoff hitter, yet they still climb the ladder
  6. Columbus (6)- CL Ellis Watson is almost unhittable in the late innings 19/21 in saves with a .86 ERA
  7. New York(AL) (10)- Max Mills is hitting well below his skills, he should wake up soon and start dominating soon enough
  8. Memphis (7) – tied as the best fielding team in the league with Wichita, could be one reason they are doing so well
  9. Philadelphia (12) - #2 in the league in strike outs not to shabby.
  10. Oklahoma City (13) – Swept through New York and Toledo and took their series against Madison. This team is showing its grit. Also leads the league in least amount of HR allowed.
  11. Burlington (14) – SP Ivan Hoiles's brief Ml Stay came to an end this week after an 0-3 record in 5 games with a 7.50 ERA
  12. Washington D.C. (15) - 25-11 at home 16-20 on the road welcome Jekyll and Hyde.
  13. Iowa City (5) – The adjustment period has began after a tough series with Washington they are dropping back down to Earth
  14. San Diego (8) - struggling against right handed pitching where they are batting just under .250 against lefties they seem to have less issues batting near .280.
  15. Santa Fe (11) - Matt Shave eats babies, the ownership has checkup as of 11/10 imagine how good they would be if someone was at the wheel.
  16. Kansas City (17) – the dark cloud of having no David Seanez is starting to lift and the team apparently will survive might even retake 2nd in the division this week
  17. Las Vegas (16) – 29 1 run games and 10 extra inning games, they love to keep it close.
  18. Fargo (21) - expected Win % is almost .550 that tells you how good they could be at times. A strong week and they could jump at least 3 spots
  19. Pittsburgh (20) – Don Perry has stepped in front of 13 pitches so far this season, a painful way for the old man to get on base.
  20. Baltimore (25) - pitching is struggling against right handers to the tune of a .290 OBA. Almost 25 point hirer than against lefties
  21. Cincinnati (24)-Return of Kmeuller has given the Cinci squad a 9-6 record. A vast improvement
  22. Florida (19) - currently leads the league in triples at 22
  23. Monterrey(26)- 3B Mo Torrealba's 79 strike outs tie a career high
  24. Louisville (18) - CL Walter Gentry is about the only working in the pitching staff.
  25. Cheyenne (22) - throwing out almost 32% of runner to lead the league in caught stealing
  26. Colorado(23)- twice the league average in Wild Pitches thrown (15/8)
  27. Durham (30) - The Bulls lost confidence in RP Geronimo Rosado and demoted him in the past week. He wasn't entirely poor so we should see him again at call ups
  28. Vancouver (27) - LF Rafael Molina is playing like the minor leaguer he is. All speed and no bat.
  29. Milwaukee (28) - 8-2 in their past 10 and yet they get no respect in the ranking and fall 1 slot. Something about a team that struggles to hit that gets no respect in my formula
  30. Atlanta Braves- .020 percentage points below the next closest team in team batting average, The side of the barn seems to be a challenge in Atlanta
  31. St. Louis (31) - almost as bad as Hartford and they actually have an owner who checks in
  32. Hartford (32) - New owner same results, until pitching returns this will be a hard few weeks in Hartford.
