MLB Top 10 Power Ratings for June

With the All Star break nearing it is time to take stock of some of the better teams in MLB.  Here is a look with some notes on my Top 10 teams in MLB as of June 15th.

1.     LA Dodgers - With 42 wins, the Dodgers have done it without the services on Manny, and hitting just .220 as a team and averaging under 3 runs a game in their last 10.  The bullpen has an ERA of 2.97 on the year and with a solid starter rotation, and Manny coming back soon, they look to be the beast in the West for the entire season.
