2012 media power rankings
« Topic Start: February 01, 2012, 07:07:19 PM »
SI's Joe Lemire just issued the first SI power rankings of the year. Braves #10, Nationals #12, Marlins #14.

It's a pretty fair write-up:

A full season of Stephen Strasburg, at least half a season of Bryce Harper and a has-to-be-better-season from Jayson Werth -- not to mention the addition of starter Gio Gonzalez -- should have the Nationals playing meaningful games in September (especially if the second wild card is implemented). Washington needs better all-around play at shortstop and could stand to add a true centerfielder, but once Werth, Harper and Michael Morse are all there it should have an outfield that can mash.

...although he clearly hasn't thought too hard about what a Werth Harper Morse outfield would be like defensively.
