MLB Power Rankings: The Padres and Dodgers stay put, but a brand new team makes their top-5 debut

Every week,​ we​ ask all​ of our baseball​ writers​ — both the​ local​ scribes​ and the national team,​ more​ than​​ 30 writers in all — to rank the teams from first to worst. Here are the collective results, the TA30.

You clicked on power rankings looking for something, whether it’s validation or a reason to be mad. You’re a sick monkey. And I can respect the heck out of that.

This is the part of the season where the standings start to make sense. It’s not just that the good baseball teams ascend and claim their rightful place atop their divisions, but it’s also where the surprise teams either fade away or chug along just as hard. Any team can fake their way into a good month with sleight of hand, but two months? Might be legit.

This goes for the bad teams, too.
