Stan 'The Fan' Charles' MLB Power Rankings: Preseason 2.0

March 26, 2019
Let the games begin. Despite two MLB games already in the record books that very few Americans laid witness to, the 2019 season kicks off in earnest March 28.

This will mark my eighth consecutive season of laying out weekly MLB power rankings. As we did last season, I'll have video rankings every Monday, and those will be accompanied by my written notes.

I'll have a brief write-up each week for my Power 10 as well as periodic write-ups on all 30 teams. Please look for that this coming Monday, April 1. And no, it won't be an April Fools' joke when I list the Orioles at the bottom of the 30-team barrel.

1. Boston Red Sox (108-54, No. 2 overall last year
2. New York Yankees (100-62, No. 4)
