@BtB: Power Rankings Updated

I've updated the power rankings at BtB.

Not a good week for the Reds. Well, sort of. Their expected winning percentage improved from 0.409 to 0.414. So there's that. But other teams near their spot improved even more, causing the Reds to fall to ...28th in the rankings. Out of 30 teams.

This gives me no pleasure. But this Reds team just hasn't been very good. The fielding's great, and that's nice to see. But the hitting has been horrid, and the pitching is "only" average. I know they're only 4 games out....but unfortunately, unless some pitchers get back on track, and Encarnacion + Votto can carry the offense, I don't know if there's enough here to catch a team like the Brewers.
