Week 2 Power Rankings

Rank - Team - Δ - Summary

1 - Finkick Odair - N/A
Shitting on dreams already.

2 - FRESH BRU - ↑2
Big week one win over the Tea Baggers has vaulted them right into serious consideration as contenders. Insiders apparently already knew this, but the league rep is not an insider.

3 - The Tyrannical Tea Baggers - ↓1
Stinging loss to the team that knocked them out of last seasons playoffs. New additions to the team need time to gel before they get moving.

4 -  Plan B - ↓1
The scoreboard doesn't represent that they were actually carrying a lead into the 4th and then a gave up a 2 out rally that could have been cut off 7 runs early if not for an untimely error. They'll rebound.

5 - Tight and Bright - N/A
Haven't seen them against the best in the league yet, so leaving them here for now.

6 - Sit On My Base - ↑2
A whole slew of new talent could make this a legit team after a few weeks to learn the ropes.

7 - Large Hardon Collider - Girth - ↓1
Give em a few weeks to remember how to play for realsies, they'll find it!

8 - Large Hardon Collider - Length - ↓1
Gotta capitalize on the winnable games, but with a healthy infusion of new players means they still need to learn the game a bit.

9 - Pitches be Trippin' -  ↑3
Injury ravaged my white ass Scott!

10 - Booooze on First! -  ↑1
These guys took a loss due to a forfeit, but actually looked really good in the exhibition game that I reffed. Once they get their ladies to show up, WATCH OUT!

11 - At Least We're Having Fun - Girth - ↓2
Won on a forfeit but lost the exhibition 8-5, which bumps them down a touch.

12 - Red Ball and V0dka -
Scraped together a 1 run win over SOPKTP, is this the rudderless version of RBV we saw at the beginning of last season? 5 runs is about what they gave up all last season...

13 - Brown Guys and Friends -  N/A
Clean win over this chill AF bros, looks like I had these guys about right.

14 - Kickin' Grass and Takin' Names - ↑3
Newbie contender alert! This team looked legit on their first outing, and I wouldn't be shocked to see them continue to rise.

15 - Jacked to the Kicks - ↑1
While outclassed a bit by the opponent last week, these folks are no shlubs.

16 - Do You Even Kick Bro? - ↓2
Their captain has the best shirt in the league. #fact

17 - Sons of Pitches Kickin The Punt - ↑1
Five runs against a top 5 team? New look team?

18 - PurpleSaurus Rex -  ↓3
With a strong -11 scoring differential we have a new bottom of the barrel champion. Move over SOPKTP!
