Midtown Sports Power Rankings
Up / Down Team Summary
Kirk Gibsons The Gibsons are sitting at #1 for theĀ first time ever in the Midtown Power Rankings. The Gibsons are 8-2 and have the best record in Midtown. They have won four of their last 5 with wins over the Molitors, Guerrerors, Smiths and Bondses. They are leading the league in team average with Warren Davson hitting .778 and Brandon "Uzzi" Martinuzzi hitting .731 while putting up a Cy Young type season on the mound. Are the Gibsons the NL favourites? I think so.
Vladimir Guerreros The party boy Guerreros, the poor party boy Guerreros. In full transparency, these Power Rankings were supposed to be released last week, at that time they were sitting at 1 by a mile, ready to shot gun some Hendersons in celebration. I got busy, and they lost two in a row to the Roses and Gibsons. Sorry boys, but no 1 for you! They are 8-3 with the second best record in the league and leading the league in team home runs. Jesse Warfield continues to have a big year batting .718 with 7 home runs, Clarke "Sick Pup" Markle is coming on strong with 8 home runs and his fielding prowess.
Jorge Bells The Bells are 6-4 and first place in the very tight AL. They have won three of their last four with wins over the Roses, Eckersleys, and Fiellders. The Bells dig the long ball and are second in the league in home runs. Rory Tufford is having a massive year with 16 home runs and a .744 batting average. They look to keep the winning going against the Ecks.
Barry Bondses The Bondses have come back down to earth after a 3-0 start. They are 2-3 in their last 5 but still sitting at number 4 in the July Power Rankings. Vidik, Laing and ABP lead the way at the plate all batting over .700. Their next four games are big ones against the Kruks, Roses, Smiths and Gibsons. Time for the Bondses to show they are a top 4 team.
Ozzie Smiths Alright the Smiths are back, baby. After starting 1-3, they are currently 7-4, winning 7 of their last 8. Their bats are stating to heat up, currently 6th in the league in average, Dugan leads the way with 20 HR and a .694 average. Pacini is once again first in the league in WHIP they have a huge match up next against the Kruks.
Ken Griffey Jrs What a jump in up in the Power Rankings by the Griffeys. After starting the season 0-3, they have won five of their last six, including a 21-0 win over the Younts last week! Dave Thompson took the mound and pitched a gem for the third ever Midtown shut out. Thompson and the Cassaday bros are leading the Griffeys at the dish as well and look to keep racking up hits against the Hunters this week.
Dennis Eckersleys The Eckersleys currently sit second in the AL, and likely got a little snub here in the July Power Rankings. They continue to play good ball, they are 3-2 in their last five. They are currently 5th in team average with Shedletzky having a monster year batting .838. The play the Bells this week in a 1 vs 2 AL matchup, in what is the Midtown Game of the Week.
John Kruks Midtown, watch out, the Kruks are HOT. After starting the season 1-3, they have since gone 5-1, sitting at 6-4. Morgan Lovsin and Andy Felice lead the way at the plate while the team as always plays stellar defense behind Cy Young candidate Britt Lovsin. They look to keep the momentum going aginst the Bondses this week.
Cecil Fielders The Fielders are currently, 4-4 but have the best run differential in the AL. After a slow start for Eric Wolfe he has found his groove with six home runs in the last two games and Scott Gray is batting .759, the best he has ever hit. As a team they are 12th in the league in average which is low for the Fielders. They play the Jeters this week to look to kick off a win streak.
Robin Younts Well, after a 3-0 record to start the season and a #1 rank in the Power Rankings the Younts have cooled down. They have lost four of their last five including getting shut out last week vs the Griffeys. Prior and MacFarlane continue to hit the ball well but as a team they struggle with the long ball. They look to get back to winning vs the struggling Molitors this week.
Paul Molitors The Molitors have had a disappointing season so far. Attendance continues to hurt them where they have had more than 8 guys only 1 time this year. Sitting at 4-5 with a big win over the Bells last week, they have 3 players in the top 10 in league average including league leader Justin Gianfranceso hitting .889. They look to get their second win in a row against the Younts this week and start the climb up the AL standings.
Pete Roses It has been an up and down season for the Roses. Currently at 4-6 and 6th in then NL, they have had big wins against the Smiths and again last week against the then first place Guerreros but have lost a lot of close ones. Currently 13th in team batting average, the bottom of the line up need to get the bats going around the Heron and Evans brothers. They look to build on the Guerreros win against the Walkers this week.
Torii Hunters The Hunters currently sit at 4-5 but have lost 4 of their last 5. They are a team with a lot of promise who are ready to beat anyone in the AL on any given day. Gonzalez and Tohana continue to bat above .700 and as a team they are 4th in the league in average. They have a huge game against the red hot Griffeys this week.
Larry Walkers The Walkers have started the season 1-3 with their lone win coming against the Johnsons. With a 1-3 record they only have a -7 run differential. Currently 15th in the league in team average, they will shake off the winter cobwebs shortly and start climbing the standings. They face off with the Gibsons next in a huge game in the NL standings.
Derek Jeters The Jeters are once again the only winless team in Midtown. Currently 10th in the league in team batting average they need to get in either the weight room of the buffet line to get the power going with 1 home run as a team. This is their year to climb up the AL standings, they will be out of the 16th spot next power rankings, mark my words.
Randy Johnsons The Johnsons are still getting their Midtown feet wet. They have been competing every week, with Forbes and Catena leading the way at the plate. They play the Guerreros and Walkers in their next two games, look for them to get their second win of the season in the upcoming weeks.
