After a brief two-week hiatus, the RCS MLB Rankings are back, and some changes are finally taking place.
This week's rankings have the largest discrepancy between the sites used to determine our aggregate rankings. This is most likely due to those resources putting their rankings out on different days this week, but still, there is a noticeable shakeup from the past month. The Angels, thanks in large part to their sweep of the Red Sox, have taken first place for the first time this year. Los Angeles (of Anaheim) has been in the top-five all year, but never above 3rd prior to this week. The two New York teams are both in the top ten for the first time since April. Even though it’s been two weeks, don't worry – the NL West is still as terrible as ever, with its five clubs ranking 17, 19, 26, 27, and 30 (that's three of the bottom five teams: NL West Baseball – catch the fever!)
On the other end of the spectrum, the AL East has the 2nd, 4th, and 8th ranked teams and the NL Central the 3rd, 6th, and 9th ranked teams.
