This week’s MLB Power Rankings further the ball that will make the playoffs Teams have a chance to differentiate themselves from teams that don’t have the playoffs.
With August coming to a close, the MLB Power Rankings are far less about feel and more about where teams actually sit on the standings. For some clubs, there are fewer roads to pick yourself up and actually play. While there are still some good playoff games, the number of teams with a real chance of making the playoffs has dwindled.
As August comes to a close, more teams fall by the wayside, with apparently no plans for miracles in 2022. Their position in the MLB power rankings continues to slide as they move closer to the bottom rather than the top.

It’s been a season of continued rebuilding, more realistically pushing to tear it all down. The Juan Soto deal ensures that. The Nationals are making some of their young players debut and see what the roster looks like next season. At least they have some intent, even if it means failure.
