Dodgers Drop To Eighth In Power Rankings

Pretty respectable placement in the May 12 2014 ESPN.com Power Rankings, even though we've dropped three spots from prior week. Let's put it this way, we're the best-ranked team with a record that's close to .500. Whoo hoo!

Anyway, here's what the sidebar says:

Los Angeles hasn't won two games in a row since sweeping a doubleheader May 1. Now is the time to make hay: hosting the Marlins for three (Miami 3-13 on road), then a winnable road trip against the Diamondbacks, Mets and Phillies. Kenley Jansen and J.P Howell both on pace for 85-plus appearances. -- Diane Firstman (@dianagram), Value Over Replacement Grit

Yep, sounds good enough for a eighth-place slot (or in other words, we're not sinking to the bottom of the list just yet!).

Wait, didn't we win three in a row in Minnesota?

The doubleheader on May 1 was the Minnesota series.

It's technically correct. We won that doubleheader plus the game vs the Twins the day before. So May 1 was the last time we won 2 in a row. May 1 is also the last time we won 3 in a row

Exactly FB.
