I guess you could call these my current Power Rankings as I see the teams heading into the Playoffs. All the playoff teams are fairly strong in all these areas (hence why they made the playoffs) and was more difficult than I anticipated.  I think these are the teams that are in?? Its a bit confusing with all this wildcard nonsense. 

Anyway, I will be updating/tweaking these lists as I see fit throughout the playoffs and will probably weighted more heavily towards current performance.  I didn't include starters as those obviously need to be evaluated on a game to game basis.

GL this postseason 

Bullpens      Batting        vsL             vsR
Braves         Yankees     Cardinals     Yankees
Rangers       Nationals    Yankees      Tigers
Cardinals     Orioles        Giants         Orioles
Orioles        Giants         Nationals     Cardinals
Giants         Athletics      Athletics      Nationals
Yankees      Cardinals     Rangers      Giants
Reds           Tigers          Reds           Athletics
Nationals     Rangers       Orioles        Rangers
Athletics      Reds           Tigers          Braves
Tigers          Braves         Braves         Reds

Why is it do you think Det is in last as faras their BP? And the reds second to last in batting?

because no one has been worse recently except for the Reds and I have hard time saying the Tigers pen is better than the Reds right now, but maybe it is. Reds have been really really bad lately, just noticed that.  May even have to move them down, anyway..

For all intents and purposes, all the bullpens are strong right now with these teams minus the Reds and Tigers.  I'll be looking to play unders and ignoring bullpens for the most part when capping sides

and its close between the Braves and Reds for the worst in hitting, whose wOBA last 30 days is .277 and .278 respectively

I think the Nat's pen is much better than you have them listed. Storen and Clippard

I guess I also misunderstood the definition of BP I was think about their starting rotations. What do you think about everyone's SP rotation?

But still id rank the Red's bullpen much much higher all starters are very much capable of going deep into games for the reds they might only need 1 inning of relief pitching and then a well rested chapman will come out to close the game

Baker is notorious for leaving his sp late in games. I doubt he'd utilize his pen if he's up during the games...

Good garbage.  I was going to post some rankings this week myself, but Covers has removed the hyperlink button and all archived hyperlinks from the mains.

thanks everyone. keep posting your opinions.. that's the goal here 

@nopatience.. I'm going to be evaluating starters on a game to game basis when looking to make a play (which will be in my postseason thread) I haven't looked at SP as whole yet.  Probably won't until I contemplate making a series play

I think I may have the Cards ranked too high against lefties or too low overall.. not sure

like I said.. a lot of these teams are very strong in all areas making this difficult.

All these stats are redundant...playoffs are different and it'll come down to whoever is hot and get streaky

you really think the starting pitching for the reds is better than the giants?  Do you take playoff experience in to consideration for any of these rankings?  It's a huge factor..
