MLB Power Rankings, Updated World Series Odds July 4th Edition – Red Sox, Giants, Brewers Surge

It’s the 4th of July edition of the MLB Power Rankings. For MLB fans, this is a banner date each season. With the MLB trade deadline looming at the end of the month, every team in the league has some decisions to make. Will they be buyers or sellers? We should know the answer to that question for each squad within the next two weeks.

As for now, the focus is on having a strong performance heading into next week’s All-Star break. Here is where each team stands as of the July 4th holiday.

MLB Power Rankings – Red Sox roll into No. 1

1. Boston Red Sox – No one saw this coming in April. They are the real deal.

2. San Francisco Giants – Like the Red Sox, another team that will be a force this October.

3. Milwaukee Brewers – Winners of 11 in a row, the Brew Crew are alive in the NL Central.

4. LA Dodgers – The World Champs are riding a 9-game winning streak, yet still trail the Giants in the West.

5. San Diego Padres – Treading water of late, but still a force.

6. Houston Astros – How did they lose 3 straight to Baltimore? 

7. Tampa Bay Rays – Still underrated. These guys just know how to win.

8. Chicago White Sox – Still not sold on them, but they rule the AL Central.

9. Oakland Athletics – Another squad that always defies the odds. They may win the West.

10. New York Mets – Big names playing well of late. Can they win a title is the question?

Best of the rest

11. Toronto Blue Jays – The lineup is scary good. If they catch fire, watch out!

12. Seattle Mariners – When I start to believe in the M’s, they fade.

13. Cleveland Indians – The Francona era may be ending soon. This team is fading early in 2021.

14. New York Yankees – Huge name, big talent, where are the wins?

15. Chicago Cubs – In trouble.

16. Cincinnati Reds – In time they will be looking to dump that huge Castellanos contract. 

17. Atlanta Braves – Their record still baffles me. They just can’t seem to put it together.

18. Washington Nationals – They are playing well and still in the hunt.

19. Detroit Tigers – Tigers at 19? Yes sir! 8-2 in their last 10, they are going to be fun to watch next season.

20. Los Angeles Angels – Ohtani is the team – and he is impressive. 

21. Philadelphia Phillies – Like the Yankees, big names, no results.

22. St. Louis Cardinals – A huge 180-turn since May. Will they be sellers at the deadline?

23. Miami Marlins – They are in last, but only 8 out of first. 

24. Colorado Rockies – One of the best teams at home, the Rocks have 6 road wins. Yes, 6.

25. Kansas City Royals – Top 5 hitters are solid, yet they still can not put it together.

26. Minnesota Twins – Donaldson, Cruz on the block?  

27. Texas Rangers – It has been a long time since the Rangers were legit contenders.

28. Baltimore Orioles – Mullins shines – Mountcastle named AL Rookie of the Month. 

29. Pittsburgh Pirates – Is it football season yet?

30. Arizona Diamondbacks – The year must feel like it will never end.
