MLB Power Ratings

Last updated: Friday, October 31, 2014 - 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 slightly more emphasis than games played earlier in the
season.  Enjoy!
