Phil Rogers' MLB power rankings
Last week's rankings in parentheses
1. Cubs (4): Rich Harden, wasted no time showing why the Cubs added him. Along with Carlos Zambrano, he gives Lou Piniella the 1-2 combination he wants for October. The challenge, of course, is keeping Harden healthy.
11. Brewers (8): CC Sabathia has generated excitement, but the Brewers still need arms, especially in the bullpen. They are talking to San Francisco about Jack Taschner, a Milwaukee native. Kansas City’s Ron Mahay seems another likely target.
Read the rest here:
It is important to note that the Phil Rogers is an employee of the Tribune Co. The Tribune Co. owns the Cubs and therefore, Phil Rogers is obligated to be a douchebag. I also think he might be married to Mike Hunt's sister.
In other news, I got into a point, counterpoint, fuck you fight with one of the posters.
The Brewers at 11?! You're smoking crack! The Cubs are overrated and destined to choke like they do every year. Milwaukee will be laughing when they win the division and St. Louis takes the wild card.

Bobbo and Adolph,
"The Cubs are overrated and destined to choke like they do every year. Milwaukee will be laughing when they win the division and St. Louis takes the wild card."
You obviously didn't watch baseball last year! I believe the Cubs came back from like 7 games down to take the division........you call that a choke? yeah the Cubs are overrated.....they share the best record in baseball but they are overrated? haha.....I think we all take your comments seriously!
I would have loved to play the Twins, Tigers and Red Sox.....because when we played the Pirates I believe the twins and tigers were some 10-12 games below .500........it would have been like playing the Pirates! As for the Red Sox....St Louis took 2 of 3 in Boston so I think we could handle the them.........

Actually, I did watch baseball last year and it was sad to see the Brewers lose steam in the final weeks. But it was just pathetic to see the Cubs get swept out of the playoffs.
The Brewers have the best record in baseball since May 20 and are gaining ground on the Cubs. The addition of Sabathia only strengthens their rotation. The guy pitched 9 innings yesterday for the win and crushed a home run.
Wood is on the DL, Harden spent a month on the DL, Zambrano was on the DL, and Soriano has some major agility issues. The guy needs to learn a life lesson from Ken Griffey Jr and figure out that stretching before games helps.
Nice pick up on Harden... I thought you guys let Prior walk last year but it was nice to see the second coming of your Messiah.
I recognize that the Brewers have never won a World Series but I'll crack a Highlife to 100 years of Cubs futility any day of the week.
