MLB Divisional Power Rankings for May

MLB Divisional Powr Rankings

So far in the 2014 MLB season has seen an exceptional amount of mediocrity from the majority of its teams, and only a handful have clearly established that they are better (or worse) than the middling pack. This is especially true in the American League, were there are only five teams that posses a positive run differential; and five teams are within two games of the second wild card spot — the NL has only one team within two games, the rest are three or more games back.

It’s kind of interesting to see how people are complaining about how mediocre the AL has been over the first 50, or so, games in 2014. But in reality, the AL isn’t nearly as mediocre as people want to think…and this shows in our divisional power rankings, as the junior circuit has 11 more points in our divisional power rankings than the senior circuit.
