Power Ranking Domination

8

Just from cruising the sports sites, it would seem that the Dbacks may have locked down the pennant for Power Rankings through April so far. Case in point: #1 in SI Power Rankings They have Brandon Webb, who does nothing but win with his Sinker from Hell, and could-be ace Dan Haren, and Micah Owings has had three straight good starts, and now Randy Johnson is back and looking pretty good. And, oh yeah, they have the best-scoring team in the game, and the reigning NL Manager of the Year and those cool snakeheads on their unis. The D'backs will cool off. But the heads will always be hot. #1 in ESPN Power Rankings Dan Haren hasn't disappointed his new team so far: He's 2-0 with a 2.54 ERA, 16 K's and three walks in 18 innings. (Obviously that was written prior to last night's game) #1 in CBS Sportsline Power Rankings If this team had a trustworthy bullpen, we would like their chances to take this top billing through a full season. And #2 in Fox Sports Power Rankings Mark Reynolds cooled a little after becoming the story of baseball early in Week 2. Lost in the shuffle has been Justin Upton's power surge. Once those two slow, expect another part of the all-upside offense to pick up the slack. With Brandon Webb and Dan Haren rolling right along, anything good out of Randy Johnson will just be gravy. (We all know that Fox Sports rides the short bus of sports journalism websites)
