Guess what? The Power Poll is back, and for the first time in its illustrious three-week history, there were no changes made to the formula this week! Which means that the change in rankings this week is a genuine change in rankings.
Which is fantastic news for guys like A.J. Pierzynski, and terrible news for guys like Dayan Viciedo.
Here are the latest rankings. As always, "B" games or minor league games do not count.
|12||Alejandro De Aza||25||14||16|
|24||Kenny Williams Jr||6||20||0|
Adam Dunn had another big week and stays at the top, but as you can see, Pierzynski was the biggest climber. Here's a secret about the formula I use: inside-the-park home runs count for 30 points!
Okay, not really.
Paul Konerko picked up 25 points during the week because just about every time he swung the bat he got on base, which goes a long way in these rankings.
Then there's Dayan Viciedo. Looking on the bright side, at least he didn't lose points.
