With spring training winding down and Opening Day only a little more than a week away, it's almost time for real baseball. Will Bryce Harper win back-to-back MVPs? Will the Diamondbacks' Go-For-It approach actually work? Will the Phillies be absolutely terrible or just kind of terrible? All these questions will start to be answered soon enough. Without further ado, here are this week's MLB Power Rankings:
30. Philadelphia Phillies (LW 29)
Another year of tanking ahead for the Phils. The idea of watching Maikel Franco and J.P. Crawford at some point softens the blow of another 100-loss season, right? Right?!
29. Cincinnati Reds (LW: 30)
They were 30 last week, 29 this week. Is there any difference? Not really. The Bengals report to camp in July sometime.
28. Colorado Rockies (LW: 28)
Denver just got like 20 inches of snow this week, so Denver residents should go hit the slopes one last time. The Rockies will still be here, losing, when you get back.
27. Atlanta Braves (LW: 26)
The Braves will not be good or fun to watch this year, but thanks in part to an overzealous Diamondbacks team that apparently REALLY wanted Shelby Miller, Atlanta won't be in the cellar for too long.
26. Milwaukee Brewers (LW:27)
Jonathan Lucroy was recently quoted saying he was "surprised" he hasn't been traded yet, so that's something. With a stacked farm system already, the Brewers aren't far from relevancy.
