Gone Missing - Power Rankings 4-18-11

I apologize to anyone who was waiting with anxious anticipation for the updated Power Rankings.  Work and being slammed by allergies got in the way this week.  If I had to throw a Top 10 together this week, I think it would have looked like this.

1. Philadelphia
2. New York Yankees
3. Colorado
4. Los Angeles Angels
5. Texas
6. Cleveland
7. Cincinatti
8. San Francisco
9. Kansas City (no, seriously)
10. St. Louis? (They're 8-8, but they have a +23 run differential)

Like I said, this is just off the top of my head and I didn't do any research into these rankings.  Right now there is a large middle class of teams that aren't great, but aren't awful.  I also would have placed Boston last.  I've given up on the whole idea of "lets give them a chance."  When the Best Team Ever starts out 2-10, it's time for them to start proving themselves.  And maybe they have.  After yesterday's Patriots Day victory they now own a 3-game winning streak. 

One last note.  Has anyone been paying attention to Jayson Werth?  In addition to having just 2 homers and 2 RBI on the season, he took the second game of a double header off because of "general aches and pains."  In April?  He'll probably be fine, but don't you think there are quite a few people in the Washington front office imagining a very long next 7 years?
