Opinions Are Like, Uh, Power Rankings: Everybody's Got Them

From's latest Power Rankings:

5. Dodgers
Strong pitching plus good defense makes it tough to score on the Dodgers. They have allowed the third-fewest runs (28) in the NL.

10. Padres
Lights out. The bullpen (28.1 scoreless innings) hasn't given up a run since last October.

11. Diamondbacks
After crossing the plate in nine of Arizona's first 10 games, Orlando Hudson shares the ML-lead in runs (11) with Jose Reyes.

21. Rockies
Only the Braves and Cardinals have posted as many quality starts (seven) as the Rockies. Staying consistent will be the key.

26. Giants
This power shortage has nothing to do with PG&E. The Giants (-21) have the second-worst run differential in baseball.
