2009 CHONE Power Rankings

What lies below is a clean power ranking based on the relative strength of each team assuming that they played a balance schedule.  While these rankings have no bearing on overall success, what they do provide is a way to see how your team really stacks up.  This year’s CHONE Power Rankings show what we tried to tell the people of Baltimore all of last season with our Top 30; you’re team isn’t nearly as bad as you and everyone else thinks it is.

Note the American League dominance as they represent the first 6 and 11 of the first 15 teams.  The bottom six, conversely, are owned by National League teams.

Rank Team
1 New York Yankees
2 Boston Red Sox
3 Tampa Bay Devil Rays
4 Cleveland Indians
5 Detroit Tigers
6 Los Angeles Angels
7 Philadelphia Phillies
8 New York Mets
9 Atlanta Braves
10 Chicago Cubs
11 Oakland Athletics
12 Toronto Blue Jays
13 Minnesota Twins
14 Seattle Mariners
15 Baltimore Orioles
16 St. Louis Cardinals
17 Cincinnati Reds

    random.com again. Remaining willing until Chone gets it right, just once. Which it never will because it just does not get it. (no team game is just about stats, stoopids, although basketball is getting pretty damn close)

    3 Tampa Bay Devil Rays
    19 Milwaukee Brewers
    10 Chicago Cubs
    21 San Diego Padres
    11 Oakland Athletics

    (interesting how Houston winds up last in both! Ha!)

  2. Phillies that low!!!!!!
    /dick explodes

    Also, I think the Nationals should be ranked #31.

  3. hulkhowers an idiot says:

    cubs low as 10?????and athletics somehow at 11??????Yea right

  4. veggies says:

    i’m more confused by the fact that the Padres are higher than the Rockies, Royals, & Giants. The Giants have great pitching and managed to win more games than anyone thought they could last year.

    I’m not like the first dork who rejects stats as a way to rank team potential, but Cleveland and Detroit above the Phillies & Mets? — I’d have to ask to see the work on those equations!

  5. RaysFan says:

    The Tampa Bay team is no longer the ‘Devil Rays’ – just the Rays. Been that way since before the start of LAST season……

  6. CubsHater says:

    Really, Dirty Water, the Brew Crew? They would have finished last in the Central without CC last year, and I’m pretty sure he moved on. Braun is a stud, but they’ll be battling with Houston for last all year.

  7. Scott in SA says:

    World Champion Phillies ranked 7th. The are basically returning with the same roster as last year minus Burrell plus Blanton for full season. Maybe if they win again this year they’ll get some respect.
