MLB Power Ratings

 


Last updated: Friday, October 13, 2017 - thru games of October 12


Welcome to my MLB power ratings!  I will be updating this page on Mondays 
and Fridays.  These ratings are based on a mathematical formula which
involves several factors, including won-lost record, schedule strength, and
margin of victory in games.  Results of recent games are weighed with
slightly more emphasis than games played earlier in the season.  Enjoy!

LR = Ranking on last update
