Betting On MLB? Cappers Picks Baseball Power Rankings

Baseball Handicapping Tips

The MLB season is back from break, and the front offices for each team has big decisions looming. There’s still a long way to go in a season that’s a marathon, not a sprint. With that said, it’s these opinions we formulate that help us to build the foundation of a profitable second half.

Here are the power rankings entering the 19th week of the MLB schedule.

1. Oakland Athletics (67-43)

Just when we thought the Athletics had already loaded up in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline, general manager goes out and gets Jon Lester to further cement the team’s position as favorites to win the World Series. Lower profile trade deadline acquisition Sam Fuld has also made an immediate impact, but that gets lost in the wash.

2. Los Angeles Angels (66-44)

The Angels have such a comfortable lead in the A.L. Wild Card spot that even an extended rough patch wouldn’t be enough to take that away from them. The team just continues to tear the cover off the ball, though the situation with the team’s starting rotation is starting to get concerning.

3. Los Angeles Dodgers (63-49)

The Dodgers were quiet at the trade deadline, but they had plenty of talent to begin with, and we’re really starting to see them separate themselves from the pack now. Matt Kemp is hitting the ball again, knocking out a pair of home runs in a game this past week for the first time since the first week of the season.

4. Detroit Tigers (61-47)

The Tigers were going to be a tough out come the postseason, and then they added David Price to put themselves right back into the conversation as World Series favorites. It also has to be scary for potential postseason opponents that Victor Martinez is hitting the ball again – he homered on Saturday and Sunday.

5. Milwaukee Brewers (61-51)

A regression from the Brewers’ bullpen was expected by now, but that unit continues to hold strong. The team’s starting rotation has been even better, and a handful of guys in that rotation have enjoyed very successful months of August in the past, so the team could use the month to run away with the N.L. Central.

6. Baltimore Orioles (62-48)

The Orioles had a heck of a month of July, and now look to carry that momentum into August. Chris Davis has shown signs of life, as has Chris Tillman, which may be even more important. Adam Jones likely won’t get any, but he probably deserves some serious MVP consideration at the end of the season.

7. Washington Nationals (60-49)

The Nationals have flown under the radar somewhat, but they’re as healthy as they’ve been all season, even with Ryan Zimmerman on the disabled list. The team’s starting rotation has been deeper than many expected it would be, and Jayson Werth deserves some MVP consideration. The back-end of the bullpen faltered over the weekend, but it remains one of the stronger units in baseball.


8. San Francisco Giants (60-51)

The team’s offense is about to get a boost in the form of a returning Angel Pagan. He really is the heart and soul of the team’s offense. Brandon Belt returned over the weekend and had some big hits on Saturday, and knocked out a home run on Sunday. The concern is the team’s starting rotation, which has been uncharacteristically inconsistent.

9. Toronto Blue Jays (60-53)

They needed to be better in Houston is they’re going to be the team that wins the A.L. East, though they do still have a firm grasp on the second Wild Card spot. Seeing Marcus Stroman get hit around on Sunday wasn’t a pretty sight, and neither was the sight of Jose Reyes coming away grabbing at his shoulder after an awkward slide.

10. Atlanta Braves (58-54)

The Braves had a chance to really make a move in the month of July with an incredibly soft schedule. Now they’ll really have to prove that they belong as they face a very tough schedule in August. The team’s starting rotation is starting to come around, but the combination of Freddie Freeman and Justin Upton need to create more offense in the middle of the order.

11. Tampa Bay Rays (54-57)
12. Pittsburgh Pirates (59-52)
13. St. Louis Cardinals (59-51)
14. Seattle Mariners (57-54)
15. Kansas City Royals (57-53)
16. Cincinnati Reds (56-55)
17. New York Yankees (57-53)
18. Cleveland Indians (56-56)
19. New York Mets (53-58)
20. Miami Marlins (54-57)
21. San Diego Padres (51-60)
22. Chicago White Sox (54-58)
23. Minnesota Twins (50-60)
24. Boston Red Sox (49-62)
25. Houston Astros (47-65)
26. Philadelphia Phillies (49-63)
27. Arizona Diamondbacks (49-63)
28. Chicago Cubs (47-63)
29. Colorado Rockies (44-67)
30. Texas Rangers (43-68)
