No Surprises in RCS MLB Power Ranking Averages

7-16.pngThe 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.

No surprises, as after the All-Star break the Dodgers remain the #1 team in the RCS MLB Power Ranking Averages. Not a lot of movement in the rankings overall this week, as no team moved up or down more than three spots in the RCS rankings.

With little movement in the rankings over the past week and it being the mid-point of the season, this seems as good a time as any to compare the divisions top to bottom. Here is how they shake out, with their average RCS score in parenthesis: AL East (10.43), AL West (11.71), NL West (14.63), AL Central (17.80), NL Central (18.20), and NL East (18.93).

*No rankings from Yahoo! this week, so only six ranking sites were used for this week’s RCS averages.
