Season 25 Preview

Season 25 Projected Power Rankings

Rank- Team (Projected Wins Losses)

1- Las Vegas (109-53) The clear favorite. The best offense, with a run of being tied for th best pitching in the AL, one of the best set of hitters I have ever seen, they have it all. An amazing squad.

2- Jacksonville (108-54) The clear favorites in the NL, but mostly because AL is better. Deep and talented, their pitching is the best in Hobbs.

3- Kansas City (105-57) Deep and talented, they are good at everything and will give Las Vegas chase for the best record in Hobbs.

4- Pawtucket (100-62) The final team that does everything well. The gap between them and #5 is much bigger than Pawtucket and Vegas.

5- Indianapolis (91-71) Though they have started dumping their older stars they have traded well and still are a favorite to make the playoffs.

6- Nashville (89-73) Seems pretty likely to win a 5th division title in a row.

7- Cheyenne (89-73) In the wrong division. Still two of the three of Cheyenne, Boise, and Vancouver will get the WC

8- Boise (88-74) In the wrong division. Still two of the three of Cheyenne, Boise, and Vancouver will get the WC

9- Vancouver (87-75) In the wrong division. Still two of the three of Cheyenne, Boise, and Vancouver will get the WC

10- Cincinnati (85-77) In the NL so they are a favorite for the WC

11- Charlotte (84-78) The best of a questionable division. They won it last season to.

12- San Francisco (83-79) The best of an even more questionable division

13- Durham (83-79) My SS underestimated them last season. It still does. Projected to be the best NL team outside of the playoffs

14- Honolulu (83-79) Going the wrong way a little and they miss the playoffs this season after two season of making it.

15- Jackson (82-80) Kind of ok at everything lands you in the 15th spot

16- Baltimore (82-80) pitching is near elite, but may struggle to score runs.

17- Trenton (81-81) Will score runs and give up runs at an above average clip. There is talent there, but may need a big move to get them in the playoffs.

18- San Juan (78-84) Will need a big year from Alfredo Payton to get over the hump

19- Santa Fe (77-85) Raybie has already made some interesting moves and seems poised to see improvement soon

20- Sacramento (75-87) As predicted by me, knine has already brought respectability to this beleaguered franchise

21- Richmond (75-87) Just not enough talent. A solid manager keeps them decent, but they just need more players

22- New Britain (75-87) Should be a much better year for dbird. The rebuild is well under way.

23- Los Angeles (73-89) Compete guess. They only have 18 players

24- Syracuse (72-90) The WS champ still has elite pitching, but just can figure out how they are going to hit.

25- Chicago (72-90) Seem a little stuck. They have a super clever owner, but not enough elite players

26- Buffalo (71-91) Rebuild is going well.

27- Florida (69-93) At least on paper they need more elite hitting and starting pitching

28- Little Rock (68-94) Will give up way too many runs.

29- New Orleans (68-94) The elite talent just isn't ready yet.

30- Philadelphia (67-95) Will bottom out this season show improvement next season.

31- San Diego (63-99) Like Little Rock will give up too many runs.

32- Santa Cruz (61-101) 32nd offense in the league. . .out of 32
