Combined Hit List Rankings: May 14
With this week's National and American League Hit Lists posted on their regular schedule and me NOT on heavy painkilers (unlike last week, when I was out on a brief medical leave), here's this week's combined Hit List rankings, with the league adjustments we've discussed before. This marks the first week that the preseason PECOTA projections are not part of the LF computation; this is all based on results to date. Before you gripe about bias against your team, take a look at their run differential, and see here for a primer on the basics.
Rk Team Comments
So we're down to four NL teams in the top 10, none of them above the Padres at number four. The not-so-mighty Cardinals, the fourth-ranked team in the last combo rankings, are much closer to falling out of that grouping, though there's just one other Senior Circuit team above .500 after the 21-point deduction. In the AL, the Blue Jays are the big gainer, up from #13 to #8, with the A's swapping spots, perfect game and all.
