MLB Power rankings:
1. Los Angeles Dodgers, Record: 10-2, Previous ranking: 1:
Trevor Bauer has been as advertised -- with a 2.70 ERA, 29 strikeouts and five walks in his first 20 innings -- and so have the Dodgers
as a whole. They swept the Nationals over the weekend without Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger in their lineup, a testament to their
unmatched depth. When Betts returned earlier this week, he quipped: "We don't really need me."
2. San Diego Padres, Record: 8-5, Previous ranking: 3
The Padres have 10 pitchers on the injured list, yet they lead the majors in ERA. The face of their franchise, Fernando Tatis Jr.,
is recovering from a shoulder subluxation, but Jake Cronenworth is emerging as a star in his absence. Perhaps the most positive sign
for the Padres (if one can be gleaned this early): As of Wednesday morning, Eric Hosmer and Wil Myers were batting a
combined .341/.438/.634 in 96 plate appearances.
3. New York Yankees, Record: 5-7, Previous ranking: 2
The Yankees' success will likely rest on whether their rotation can step up. Jameson Taillon struggled in his second outing,
going just 3? innings, allowing five runs on eight hits and striking out three. Taillon, who is returning from his second Tommy
John surgery, will need to show more for the Bronx Bombers to be a serious World Series contender. New York will also need more
from Corey Kluber, who went just 2? innings in his second start, allowing five runs, three earned.
4. Houston Astros, Record: 6-6, Previous ranking: 5
When you're in the middle of April, it's amazing how quickly a fast start can turn into a shaky one. The Astros rolled over the A's to
begin the season but have gradually been sliding back to .500, a slump that was low-lighted by getting tattooed at home in back-to-back
games against former manager AJ Hinch and the rebuilding Tigers. Zack Greinke hasn't been great so far, and the Houston debut for Jake
Odorizzi did not go well. While the Astros still have a cadre of young power arms, the veterans on the staff -- Greinke, Odorizzi and
Lance McCullers Jr. -- need to be a source of consistent innings, in both quantity and quality. Otherwise, Dusty Baker will be
scrambling to keep things covered.
5. Minnesota Twins, Record: 5-7, Previous ranking: 4
At times, the Twins have looked like they may have their strongest team yet during their current run of success. However, there
is a disconnect between their record and their underlying indicators that mostly can be traced to a 1-3 start in one-run games.
Bad luck? Maybe. But there is no doubt the Twins' offseason signing of high-leverage reliever Alex Colome has yet to pay dividends.
Colome has blown two of his four save opportunities and has been tagged for seven runs (four earned) over his first 5? innings.
Over the first couple of weeks, Colome ranks dead last among MLB relievers in wins probability added (minus-0.9).
NBA Power rankings:
1. Clippers (38-18, Last Week No. 5).
Winners of six in a row and they went 7-2 on a long homestand, all despite a fluctuating lineup: Serge Ibaka remains out with
back issues, Patrick Beverley will miss a month with hand surgery, and Kawhi Leonard is in and out of the lineup. Los Angeles is
doing that with efficient three-point shooting, they are hitting 42.1% from three this season on more than 34.4 attempts per game,
putting them ahead of the 2016 Warriors in team shooting percentage with more than 30 threes a game (41.6%). Also, it helps that
Paul George is having a hot streak and showing no ill effects from his toe issue. Just ask Isaiah Stewart.
2. Jazz (41-14, LW 1). Cold shooting from three cost the Jazz in recent losses to the Suns and Mavericks, but it was the
loss to the Wizards that was more shocking: Utah’s defense took the night off against Beal and Westbrook, and Utah’s home
winning streak ended at 24. Utah still has a 1.5 game cushion over the Suns for the top seed and one of the easiest schedules
remaining in the NBA. They should hold on to the top spot. Two high-profile games against the Lakers coming up, but with L.A.
shorthanded, the Jazz need to pick up wins there.
3. 76ers (37-17 LW 6). Philadelphia is in position to take command of the top seed in the East — and avoid facing Brooklyn
or Milwaukee in the second round, forcing them to face each other — and that starts with a showdown against shorthanded
Brooklyn on Wednesday night (if the Nets were healthy this game would be a much bigger deal). This week also sees the Clippers,
then Stephen Curry and the Warriors, come to town. The good news for Sixers fans is that as the schedule gets into late April and
May, it gets a lot softer. Joel Embiid‘s dominant performance against Dallas revived his MVP talk, but he’s already missed
18 games, will likely miss a handful more down the stretch (even if healthy), and that will prove too much time off for voters.
4. Nets (37-17, LW 3). Kevin Durant has looked impressive in his three games since returning from a hamstring issue,
averaging 23.3 points on 64.9% shooting while playing with a minutes limit. Brooklyn keeps winning despite James Harden
remaining out with a sore hamstring and Kyrie Irving being away from the team for personal reasons, but with just 18 games
left it’s fair to ask if this core will get enough time together on the court before the playoffs. The Nets defense is 10th
in the league over its last 7 games (a good sign for Brooklyn fans), and Wednesday night look for Steve Nash to throw a lot
of looks at Joel Embiid to see what works best, then file those notes away for a potential playoff showdown.
5. Nuggets (34-20 LW 4). The loss of Jamal Murray for the season — and a large chunk of next season — is a punch to the gut.
Denver looked like a legitimate contender in my books for the eight games after acquiring Aaron Gordon, but this sets them back.
In the short term expect more Monte Morris — and expect Gordon and Michael Porter Jr. to take more shots — but without the two-man
game of Murray and Nikola Jokic, this team is good but not the same level of threat. The injury forces the front office to deal with
long-term building questions about paying Gordon and MPJ without necessarily seeing what this fully-functioning team looks like in
