TRS MLB Power Rankings
Welcome to The Runner Sports MLB Power Rankings.
Here at TRS, we like to do things a little bit differently; so instead of reading power rankings from 300 different writers, or worse, just one single ranking, we do all the hard work and bring you the best power ranking possible. We average out the rankings of all of the MLB writers on staff here, to find out who truly stands above the others, and consolidate them into one ranking for your ease.
Be sure to check out a little bit of reasoning from the writers below the rankings, and see where they ranked teams, and why.
Also, be sure to check back, as this power ranking will be updated every Monday throughout the season.

Brad Kyle – Baltimore Orioles (7th)
Baltimore held their ground the final week of regular season, and proceeded to clinch the final AL Wild Card spot, Sunday, in their 162nd game. Beating the Yankees, 5-2, in New York for the clincher. Finishing with a 7-3 record for their final 10, the Orioles now head across the border for a one game Wild Card playoff with Toronto, Tuesday. Baltimore was 9-10 against the Blue Jays, overall, this season, but won just 4 of 10 in Toronto. A bird will emerge victorious; the fun will be in watching the feathers fly.
Nello Rubio- Chicago White Sox (19th)
The Chicago White Sox had one of the biggest MLB Power Ranking falls from the beginning of the year to today’s final rankings. Starting as high as #2 before dropping all the way to 19 to end the year. The Sox started the season red-hot at 23-10, six games ahead of the eventual American League Central champion Cleveland Indians, and with one of the best records in all of baseball. Largely due to a combination of injuries, not finishing close games they should’ve won, poor mismanagement from Robin Ventura, as well as one of the worst division records in all of the Majors resulted in the Sox ending up finishing fourth in the division and eight games under .500. Ventura’s long overdo resignation is just the first part of what should be a pretty interesting offseason; one that could see many changes for the South Siders.
