Ok, everyone, these are my patented fantasy POWER RANKINGS (that are completely ripped off of CBS's ranking system)

The idea is that each team will receive points relative to how well they rank compared to other teams in the categories of Record, Total Points, and League Record, and much like a BCS system will receive 24 points for being first in the league, 23 for second, etc. down to 1 for last place.

The League Record thing is based off of the idea of playing every other team in the league every week, and what your record would be from those matchups (it's different from total points in that its relative to the week. Camp Campana's 677 this week look great, but what if next week 6 teams score 650? Then 677 doesnt look as good)

POWER RANKINGS

1. Slumpbusters
2. The Snicklefritz
3. 104 and Counting
4. Camp Campana
5. Six States
6. Hansman Cubs
7. Toxic Cubbies
8. Waveland Ave Ball Hawks
9. (but first in our hearts) Michigan BanHammers
10. Han's First Shot
11. Tainted Glove
12. The Stalingrad Hammer
13. The Cubs Way!!
14. Stinky Pete
15. The Waving Wendells
16. Bunt Competition Champs 2012
17. Lovable Winners
18. 19ohWait
19. The Exploding Meth Labs
20. 23ryan
21. Cubbie Blues
22. Baseblog Bloggers
23. PatandRons
24. Nobody Effs With DeJesus (really tough weeks mwerner)

Nice. I think we should add categories for "shit talking" and "coolest team name." Which I'm pretty sure would just extend the Slumpbusters' lead...

Wow, looks like I'm playing for the upset this week.

Kind of like Purdue does every time they take the court.

I'd agree with you if we were talking about football, but they're decent at bball!

Here I thought I was awesome, but the other fellas in my division just aren't playing full throttle yet. It will be interesting to see how the non-divisional matchups play out.

That's good. You'll get to see him pitch brilliantly again later this week.

Come on Arizona... promote Bauer ASAP...
