Power Rankings! Good God, Y'all! What Are They Good For?

From's latest Power Rankings:

7. Dodgers
Mark Hendrickson has allowed just two earned runs in three starts (16.2 IP) since Jason Schmidt went on the DL.

9. Padres
It's taking longer for Kevin Kouzmanoff (.118 BA) to get comfortable than the Padres would have liked.

12. Giants
Don't be surprised if Tim Lincecum (0.29 ERA, 46 K's in 31 innings at Triple-A) is as good as advertised.

14. Diamondbacks
Split personality. In one-run games, the Diamondbacks are 7-1 at home and 1-5 on the road.

26. Rockies
Matt Holliday leads the majors in hits (45) and ranks second in batting average (.385). Too bad he can't pitch.
