The Braves’ poor weekend coupled with the Rangers’ 4-1 week led to a change at the top of the rankings.  The biggest jumps came from the Red Sox, Rays, Rockies, Reds, and Brewers.  The biggest drop came from the Dodgers, who slid 11 spots.

Here are the rankings for Week 3:

The Rockies’ hot start includes a 6-0 record against San Diego and an 8-1 mark at home (they lost their first home game yesterday).
