MLB Power Ratings

Last updated: Friday, November 5, 2010 - final ratings

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