Monday, February 12, 2007 Power Rankings

It's the time of year where analysts, "experts", and armchair gm's come out with their annual power rankings. I checked over at and Dayn Perry has released his rankings. The Braves are ranked #19. What is this supposed to mean? How do these rankings affect your team? How are these rankings determined?

Power rankings don't mean much to me. I mean c'mon, it's a number given out based on the previous years results, whatever offseason transactions you make, and how you will match up against your division and more or less the rest of the league. I don't think these "rankings" affect the team at all; it's just another number. It's not like college football where rankings are a highly valued number. Anyway check if out if you like as we slowly get closer to the days of Spring.
