MLB Power Rankings 2012: Yankees No. 7, Mets No. 9

The New York Yankees and New York Mets are much closer in this week's aggregated MLB Power Rankings from Real Clear Sports than you would have thought possible when the 2012 season began. The Yankees are No. 7 and the Mets No. 9 in this week's rankings.

Real Clear Sports takes the rankings from eight popular Internet sports sites and compiles them into an agregated score.

The Yankees received one fourth-place vote (SI.com) and four eighth-place rankings. The Mets rankings ranged from 10th to 17th, but in an odd twist their aggregated total placed them ninth overall.

The top five teams in the RCS Rankings are:

  1. Texas Rangers
  2. Los Angeles Dodgers
  3. Atlanta Braves
  4. Baltimore Orioles
  5. St. Louis Cardinals

The bottom-dwelling Minnesota Twins were a unanimous lat-place choice in all eight polls used.
