MLB Power Rankings (Last Updated: 05/20)
Unfortunately, April was a losing month stopping our complemenatry selections winning streak to ten positive
months. We have been offering free winning seletions for the last twelve of thirteen months now.
Lost 30.80 units in March and are now +800.41 for the trailing 13 months. Hopefully you followed some of the free action.
1. Cardinals (25-12):
The Cardinals placed Jon Jay and Jordan Walden on the disabled list, but maintained their four-game lead in the NL Central. They have
the best record in baseball, and continue to get dominant starts by new ace Lance Lynn. The Cardinals are cruising and in first
place, so there’s not a ton of concern here. However, it might be nice to see Michael Wacha start missing bats at some point.
2. Dodgers (24-13):
Clayton Kershaw finally secured his 100th win, becoming the Dodgers' all-time leader in winning percentage for those
with at least 100 wins (.662, surpassing Sandy Koufax's .655). Kenley Jansen made his 2015 debut Friday, coming off the
disabled list to pull off a rare four-strikeout inning. The better Andre Ethier plays, the easier it is to get other teams
interested in someone who was considered a toxic asset this offseason. Of course, the better he plays,
the harder it is to part with him.
3. Royals (24-14):
This is the Eric Hosmer everyone dreamed of after his rookie season in 2011. He's hitting .302/.404/.554,
ranking in the top 10 in the AL in both OBP and slugging. And from the you-couldn't-have-dreamed-it files:
Kendrys Morales is second in the AL with 28 runs. He scored 28 in all of 2014.
4. Tigers (23-15):
The Tigers' rediscovery of offense coincided with Miguel Cabrera hitting four home runs in a three-game span,
the last of them his 400th career blast. The timely power surge helped Detroit win its series against Minnesota
and St. Louis, teams that have looked very impressive against everyone else.
5. Astros (25-13):
The Astros lead the majors with 57 home runs, three more than the Dodgers, giving them a pace of 243 for the season.
They've only hit 200 twice in franchise history: 2000 (249) and 2001 (208). They hit 163 last season. The home runs
are carrying an offense hitting .229. The Astros might have overachieved early, but they’re backing up their play using their
substantial depth. Preston Tucker is off to a hot start since his call up, and Marwin Gonzalez is a functional band-aid at
shortstop until Jed Lowrie is healthy or Carlos Correa is up.
NBA Conference Finals Previews (last updated: 05/19)
Eastern Conference: Cavs vs Hawks
How do you beat LeBron? Heck, the Hawks did it three of four times this season. Kyrie Irving is expected to play after some sort of
aggravation in Game 6 against the Bulls. Not to say he was acting a bit, but he sure scored a lot of points with such a bad injury.
He obviously was hurt in some regard, but it doesn’t seem serious.
Still, without Love this makes it a very competitive series. The Hawks have a bothersome lineup for the Cavs’ Mozgov and
Tristan Thompson because of the way Al Horford and Paul Millsap shoot from outside. Neither of the Cavs’ bigs is very
mobile moving outside. Horford probably is most responsible for winning the series with Washington. And the Cavs small lineup
is too small with Smith, Iman Shumpert, Dellavedova and James Jones. Kendrick Perkins? The Hawks can pray he plays.
The Hawks are a tough team to play the way they are all small ball, moving and passing and shooting threes. All the
teams still playing were in the top five this season in made three pointers. Memo to Bulls: Shooting! But the Hawks’
shooters seem to have worn down some with the additional defensive pressure of the playoffs. They’ve got a shot at the Cavs,
and DeMarre Carroll, much like Jimmy Butler, does a good job on LeBron, or as good as one can. The Hawks were one of the best teams
this season pressuring James and Irving and basically challenging the other guys, frustrating LeBron some in a regular season Hawks win.
“I can't be worried about the Hawks right now. It's not like we're going to face them in the first round," James said then. "It was the
first time they used that game plan on us (pressuring he and Irving). They kind of caught us by surprise. Down the road if we get to that
point, we'll be all right."
Those other guys were better against the Bulls. Can they still be? The Bulls didn’t do a very good job of that. If the Hawks
can they could pull the upset, at least as upsets go when you’ve won 60 games and have home court advantage.
Western Conference: Rockets vs Warriors
This is going to be one big time shoot ‘em up even if San Francisco has the strictest weapons bans. There even were some hard feelings—not
the level of Warriors and Clippers—but Curry got into it with Trevor Ariza in the last regular season game as the Warriors won all four
by double digits, a 15 per game winning margin. And that was when the Rockets had Patrick Beverley, their best perimeter defender,
and Donatas Montiejunas, a reliable interior scorer.
Harden and Jason Terry guarding Curry and Klay Thompson? It’s getting tough to figure how the Rockets will win a game, let alone the
series. The Warriors have been the healthiest team and have a tough defense. Draymond Green will ride Harden and Andrew Bogut will
get in the way of Dwight Howard. Howard even taunted them the last time they met, saying the Hawks were better. “They’ve (Atlanta)
got the best record, right. I thought they were the best team. They play well, they move the ball, the defense and offense has been
great this year.”
The Warriors, if Howard hadn’t noticed, have excellent depth and will run in better defenders off the bench than the Rockets have
anywhere on the team. Though reaching the conference finals was a huge win for the Rockets, who perennially have been a first
round out team and had the most unlikely series win to get to the conference finals. It seemed fairly obvious all the Rockets
players brought golf clubs to Game 5 and the Clippers refused to win. And nobody in the playoffs has been worse defensively.
The Warriors averaged 115 against them this season and 129 the two games Howard played. If anyone has seen a Rockets players
challenge a jump shot in these playoffs raise your hand. At least someone would. These Warriors will be so close now to the
first Finals in 40 years there should be no holding them back.
With a lots of games on the board on a daily basis,
if there is a time that you can use some solid advice and some strong selections, now is that time.
