Is it 2008? The Tampa Bay Rays sure think so. They’ll lead off this week’s power rankings, which have seen some major moves since we last checked in.

1. (3) Tampa Bay Rays (17-5): Everything is clicking, just like it did two years ago, and there’s no end in sight for the hot streak. Looks like 2009 was the anomaly, not 2008.

2. (1) New York Yankees (14-7): Imagine where they’d be if Javier Vazquez wasn’t losing games for them? Seems like Brian Cashman was the only guy who didn’t see his flop coming.

3. (6) St. Louis Cardinals (15-7): Nothing’s really changed from last year’s division champion roster aside from swapping Brad penny into the Joel Pineiro role. So we can’t be too surprised.

4. (24) New York Mets (13-9): The Miracle Mets are back! Hard to say if it can last. A lot depends on whether or not pleasant surprises like Mike Pelfrey can keep up the good work. I’m still skeptical.

5. (2) Minnesota Twins (14-8): Did nothing to warrant a slide in the rankings but the teams above them are just piping hot. How about Francisco Liriano’s resurgence?

6. (13) San Diego Padres (14-8): Still early enough in the season that we should give credit where credit is due. As long as they keep winning, it looks like Adrian Gonzalez is staying put.

7. (14) Detroit Tigers (13-10): All of a sudden they can hit again. I really don’t know what to make of the Tigers this year.

8. (5) Philadelphia Phillies (12-9): Their powerhouse season isn’t going to work if Cole Hamels doesn’t at least come close to Roy Halladay’s production level.

9. (15) Boston Red Sox (11-11): It was only a matter of time before their funk ended. But Beantown still has to be worried about Tampa stealing its playoff spot.

10. (8) San Francisco Giants (12-9): Should hover around this spot al year. We know what we get with this all-pitching, no-hitting group.

11. (20) Cincinnati Reds (11-11): Don’t be so sure their recent surge is a fluke. Plenty of power on the roster, rookie Mike Leake is ahead of schedule and Aroldis Chapman is ripping it up in the minors.

12. (4) Los Angeles Angels (12-11): Staying put in the standings but something is missing from this team. The starting pitching is supposed to be better.

13. (22) Arizona Diamondbacks (11-11): Holy cow, Kelly Johnson! He and Adam LaRoche look like baseball’s biggest offseason acquisitions not named Roy Halladay.

14. (12) Colorado Rockies (11-11): Holding strong around .500 but do the math: Ubaldo Jimenez is 5-0, so the Rockies’ record without him is…

15. (16) Seattle Mariners (11-11): They may not have to be perfect to win the suddenly mediocre AL West but Cliff Lee’s return will still be extremely welcome.

16. (9) Oakland Athletics (12-11): Losing Kurt Suzuki and Brett Anderson should squash their mini-streak quickly.

17. (19) Washington Nationals (12-10): How cool would it be if the Nats were over .500 when Stephen Strasburg arrived?

18. (10) Florida Marlins (11-11): Josh Johnson is back on track and the Mike Stanton countdown has begun.

19. (11) Toronto Blue Jays (11-12): It wouldn’t surprise me at all if they never ranked even this high in the rankings again this season.

20. (18) Los Angeles Dodgers (8-14): I’m patting myself on the back for this prediction. No starting pitching depth, no division title this year. Someone tell Ned Colletti that Matt Kemp ain’t the problem.

21. (17) Pittsburgh Pirates (10-12): Would’ve been lower but a little winning streak kept them afloat. Evan Meek could be the real deal in the ninth inning.

22. (21) Texas Rangers (10-12)
23. (26) Chicago Cubs (10-13)
24. (27) Chicago White Sox (9-13)
25. (25) Milwaukee Brewers (9-13)
26. (18) Cleveland Indians (9-12)
27. (20) Atlanta Braves (8-14)
28. (28) Houston Astros (8-13)
29. (29) Kansas City Royals (8-14)
30. (30) Baltimore Orioles (4-18)
