MLB Power Rankings: Rockies Dead Last In Unusual One

Power rankings are what one wants to make out of them. A real explanation of how teams are doing? Sure. Pointless because they come out every week? Just as acceptable. Take ESPN's MLB Power Rankings for this week. The Rockies drop one spot to No. 5 this week after dropping four straight, including a sweep at the hands of the San Francisco Giants. But you'll more than likely find a large number of Rockies fans who will say that the team is nowhere near being a top-five team in the league right now. Can't please everyone, you know.

But if you are Grant Brisbee over at Baseball Nation, MLB Power Rankings aren't done based on record, recent play and anything else that may have happened in the baseball world. No, his rankings are based on categories that have nothing to do with baseball.

Look at his power rankings this week: hair-metal bands. I don't know much about those types of bands, but I'll trust Grant when he puts the Rockies at No. 30 for Winger since Kip Winger is from Denver. And there are some well-deserved shots at Dinger.
