Lady Loves Pinstripes: 2011 MLB July Monthly Power Rankings

The trade deadline marked the close to the month of July, as now the real fun begins; that is if your team still has a shot at playing in October.

Where does your team stand at the end of July?

My advice to baseball fans is to catch some Bieber Fever, and Never, Say Never.

With a ton of baseball still left in the 2011 season October is up for grabs, so see where your team stands on my July Monthly Power Rankings; and comments are encouraged.

JULY

MLB TEAM

JUNE

COMMENTS. WHY?

1

Philadelphia Phillies

2

Trading for Hunter Pence was a legit and necessary move….and it is already paying off.

2

Boston Red Sox

3

Injury prone Erik Bedard better be just a stopgap for injured Clay Buckholz…. still a desperate move by GM Theo Epstein.

3

New York Yankees

1

If any team can win with hitting it is the Bronx Bombers…. silence at trade deadline was golden back in 1998.

4

San Francisco Giants

4

Carlos Beltran was a great move till the Phillies and Braves made better ones.

5

Atlanta Braves

5

Michael Bourne is perfect leadoff hitter with .303 BA, 26 doubles and 39 SB; keep an eye on this team when McCann returns.

6

St. Louis Cardinals

8

Made the most of the trade market adding SS Furcal ,OF Paterson, SP Jackson, RP Dotel and P Rzepczynski. Cards fans should be excited.

7

Texas Rangers

10

Still don’t trust a team with 2nd most errors in baseball; adding Uehara and Adams at trade

8

Detroit Tigers

6

Can the pitching hold-up to win the AL Central? Tigers have a 50-50 chance it could go either way.

9

Arizona Diamondbacks

11

Don’t count the D-Backs out just yet; a young, talented and hungry organization could do damage down the stretch.

10

Milwaukee Brewers

9

Rickie Weeks injury couldn’t have come at a worse time but Jerry Harriston is experienced and versatile enough to hold down the fort…at least at home.

11

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

12

Keeping a position to pounce and take what is rightfully theirs… the AL West.

12

Cleveland Indians

14

Be Aggressive… until the Tribe doesn’t make the playoffs; doubtful Jimenez trade will make enough of an impact.

13

Tampa Bay Rays

7

Should have been sellers as not catching Yankees and Red Sox this season; James Shields could have brought a truckload of prospects.

14

Pittsburgh Pirates

15

Use the 19th inning loss as a motivator to prove that Pittsburgh is resilient.

15

Chicago White Sox

18

Ozzie’s boys will win this division…. mark my word. Jackson trade brings a moan of relief.

16

Cincinnati Reds

13

Proving that making postseason in 2010 was not a forecast of good things to come. Needed to do something at trade deadline, not copy the Yankees.

17

Toronto Blue Jays

19

Can this team please move to the NL? Or just anywhere that is NOT the AL East?

18

New York Mets

16

GM is cleaning up shop and Reyes will be a Met after this season. Next project is fixing CitiField…

19

Washington Nationals

17

Phenom pitcher Stephen Strasburg could be back in rotation in September….but why not just wait till 2012?

20

Colorado Rockies

21

Even a bigger disappointment than the Reds…second half surge was obviously luck.

21

Oakland Athletics

22

Billy Beane for Brad Pitt? Moneyball the movie will win more awards than A’s ever will….

22

Minnesota Twins

29

Finally, my “Joe Mauer Is Overrated” theory it panning out.

23

Florida Marlins

25

Should give new ballpark to Rays…because Marlins deserve to play in the Trop Dome.

24

Los Angeles Dodgers

25

Matt Kemp is on his way to winning NL MVP; now he should go get Rihanna back and enjoy it.

25

Kansas City Royals

26

1B Eric Hosmer is tremendous and Royals fans know that means he won’t be around much longer.

26

Chicago Cubs

28

Hey at least things got bad earlier than normal this season….FYI the something still ain’t working.

27

Seattle Mariners

20

17-game losing streak; wasting King Felix again; and Michael Pineda better get out of there unless Mariners get new ownership.

28

San Diego Padres

27

Health Bell still has his bags packed and hopefully Padres can get him the ball so he can prove it before waiver-wire trade deadline Aug 31.

29

Baltimore Orioles

24

Are the Orioles ever going to be good? Traded Lee and Uehara but who cares….

30

Houston Astros

30

FIRE SALE….memo to Astros stop answering the phone because you getting punked.

    And who got the right handed bat you said was so needed? Though they were well in first place in the MLB without one, like i thought.

    And who failed to get any pitching? Banking on their hitting to keep them in it…working so far. Better hope they can keep it up
