This week, the top three remain the same, with the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies continuing to own the power rankings poll here at The Wife Hates Sports.

Elsewhere, the Detroit Tigers and Milwaukee Brewers fell far after brutal weeks, while the surprising Pittsburgh Pirates made a major jump into the top 15.

Due to the shortened holiday week, team descriptions are being left out this time around, but will return next week.

The Wife Hates Sports’ MLB Power Rankings system has a method to its madness, attempting to be different and not just rank by popularity and record.  It mixes a secret formula of six completely different categories, meshed into a points system.  The categories don’t just include team results regarding record, but how each team has performed recently, as well as incorporating some statistics on both a team’s offense and pitching staff, too.
