Opening Day Power Rankings

Teams Runs Differential
Jacksonville 302 #1 Offense, #1 pitching, 4 of the best 18 hitters,4 of the best 16 pitchers.
Kansas City 214 "KC probably missed out on their best chance at winning it all last year. The changes will be slight, but the cap caused some downgrading, which will just get worse in coming seasons. Still, a loaded team....just not as loaded as last year."
Las Vegas 187 Vegas has an amazing offense and will be in the running for the $25 GC.
Scranton 171 Last years champ will be in an excellent position to repeat should something happen to JAX (again)
Augusta 141 The team with the biggest jump. I like their chances to go from a .500 team to a playoff team.
Vancouver 91 Down a little from last season, the offense will still be top notch.
Dover 64 A nice all around team, they should finally make the playoffs in the weaker NL.
Cheyenne 55 Their offense should be enough to keeep in the race for the WC.
Jackson 39 "Perennially on the verge, Mudslide will again be looking up at KC, LV and Van"
Scottsdale 16 The future has arrived and Herzog could win the MVP.
Los Angeles 8 Their roster is a little in complete so this is a bit of a guess.
Washington DC 4 In the wrong division. JAX is the best team, Bal has the best pitchign and Dover is a playoff team
Texas 2 Probably made a mistake not finding a way to keep Troncosco
Little Rock -17 Was about .500 two seasons ago, about .500 last season, about .500 this season. My only complaint is that they seem to waiting for an engraved invition to bring up Juan Martinez who is a top 50 pitcher right now.
Buffalo -20 "My SS still doesn't like this team, but they have consistently outperformed those projections; can they do it a third season in a row?"
Baltimore -25 Best pitching last season, 3rd most highly rated now. My SS says they will struggle to score, but my hear says they'll find a way.
Chicago -28 Their Harry Johnson Will Gray. Its not only a funny sentence, it’s a pair of top 10 players.
Helena -28 After seasons of 60ish wins, the future looks bright
Boise -33 Florida used to be the team I had a hard time coming up with something for, now its Boise.
Salt Lake City -38 Their system is stacked, but it hasn't turned in to wins. . . Yet.
Burlington -39 Another team that appears to be on the cusp of something nice.
Philadelphia -49 Since no AL team thinks Geronimo Marquez can play I'm going after him.
Trenton -51 Very good offense. Just needs a little more pitching
Santa Fe -57 Very good offense. Just needs a little more pitching
Nashville -82 Season 2 of the rebuild begins
San Diego -93 Was season 28 a series of happya ccidents or for real? We'll see this season.
Syracuse -94 A couple of amazing trades will show their impact soon.
Sacramento -106 Surprised Knine doesn't have them higher yet.
Florida -108 "Tigers will move back up to .500 and higher after this season."
Pittsburgh -122 Still unpacking Jbugg's mess
San Juan -133 Already 2-0. This may be the last time they have the best record in the league.
New Orleans -169 They always exeed my expectations. Imagine if they had talent on the roster.
