The RCS MLB Power Ranking Averages combine seven* other sites' power rankings to make the most balanced and unbiased grade possible, and to offer the most accurate look at the state of the MLB on a weekly basis.
The Dodgers continue to dominate the RCS MLB Power Ranking Averages, ranked #1 for the 6th consecutive week. Jumping into the top 10 for the first time this season are Dodgers rival, the Giants, who rose from 13th into a tie for 8th. The Brewers fall out of the top ten, dropping from 6th to 12th.
The Giants are the hottest team in the power rankings along with the Cardinals, who also moved up 5 spots, from 10th to 5th. The Brewers and the Phillies (dropping from 4th to 10th) are the coldest teams in this week's rankings, each dropping 6 spots.
The AL East is far and away the highest ranked division in baseball, with teams ranked 2nd, 4th, 7th, 11th, and 22nd respectively.
*FanHouse did not have MLB Power Rankings this week so only 6 sites were used to determine the RCS Averages.
