MLB Power Rankings: May 11

Happy Monday, sports fans! Another crazy week in baseball is behind us, and there are some big shakeups in my power rankings. Four teams jumped, or fell, at least nine spots this week. Among those teams are the Washington Nationals. “Can a massive week from Bryce Harper make the Nationals relevant again?” That’s a clown question, bro. We now know that the Nats can live, and die, on the game of Bryce Harper.

Did I jump the gun on teams more this week or last week? Let me know in the comments below.
